Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a slow woo woo

9231 Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a slow woo woo

Large extra thick very heavy Manipuri with original patina and some clear and worn old etching. The sheer weight of this bowl compared to its size makes it unusual. Complex soundscape with a slow woo woo bass and fast spinning main overtone with other higher notes. Good harmony and longevity. Rim with leather play is mostly the fundamental tone. The overtone with a taste of the next note above play strongly with a massive wand. With overtones at F#5, E6, C7, F#7.
