Large Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with an oscillating bass

9260 Large Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with an oscillating bass

Large bright colored Manipuri worn smooth over time. The bass comes forward and fades, a strong presence under the solid overtones. As with most of these deep Manipuri a very deep mallet will accentuate the bass. Great stick bowl with its smooth thin edge. A soft touch with the leather ringer plays the deep bass. That same leather plays the primary overtone and flipping the stick to the wood side clearly sings the next two notes up. With overtones at G4, F#5, D6.
