9210 Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with powerful even toned sound

Huge extra thick Manipuri with a smooth glowing gold colored interior and three clear etching lines outside under the rim. 2Kg is one of the largest and heaviest Manipuri you will ever see – especially today as these are mostly gone. Powerful incredibly even toned soundscape, rare symmetry supported by the 2 1/2 Lb. mass for effect. This is a great bowl if you want to absorb that frequency, it comes across with such solid intensity. The bowl has an invisible sonic flaw, a rattle, somewhere that can be avoided by striking the bowl in a particular zone. That is what is in the main recording with a short piece of the sonic issue at the end. It can be difficult to hear, but I am picky about such things and marked down this remarkable bowl by half. The powerful penetrating bass is easily played with leather, the overtone with its taste of the higher register flaw again with leather and a more strenuous technique. Only buy the big fluffy mallet and largest leather wrapped ringing stick with this bowl – it is just too much for smaller implements. With overtones at A#4, A#5.
