9232 Large Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a gently bouncing overtone

Very Large smooth thick Manipuri with bright brassy patina and some darker spots inside. Along with some red copper coloration. A soft bass, gently bouncing overtone and subtle high play well together throughout the sustain. By the end of the ring what might be considered a soft woo woo has peacefully receded. Fine rim play as usual for a big worn Manipuri. Strong tones, especially the bass and first overtone which can be played individually with leather. The high overtone starts with s a bit of roughness in the spin, the sustain is pure. With overtones at A#4, A5, F6.
