Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a woo-woo overtone

9212 Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a woo-woo overtone

Large extra thick Manipuri with a mixture of light and dark coloration through which the old etching is visible. This is a very old bowl based on the coloration. A strong woo-woo overtone emerges out of initial complexity to pulse you throughout the rest of the sustain. Mallet play is a marvel of simplification, if you enjoy that rich complexity tap the bowl regularly. Fine rim play, unusual for a big old Manipuri the bass is easy and powerful with leather. For the first overtone the smoother option is the massive yew wand as basic wood makes less smooth contact. With overtones at B4, A#5, F#6, C7.
