Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with complex mostly three tone soundscape

9249 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with complex mostly three tone soundscape

Large heavy Manipuri with dark, multicolored patina and bits of old etching. Active and complex mostly three tone soundscape where you can pretty easily hear those three notes individually throughout the excellent sustain. Spectacular big stick bowl with its smooth edge and great mass. The leather ringer plays the deep bass quite naturally with exceptional power. That same leather plays the primary overtone with strength and a small midrange tiny wand sings the next two or even three notes with huge volume after some concerted spinning. With overtones at C5, C6, C7.
