Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with resonant oscillations

9381 Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with resonant oscillations

Large bright Manipuri with a clear etched inscription that was placed on a bowl smooth from use. Sonorous and resonant this big bowl delivers a powerful complex repeating pattern of oscillations. Unique and really interesting to listen into. It is one of those rare bowls that present different oscillation patterns with different strikes. Sustain is spectacular, well over a minute. Great off the rim, high intensity and room filling volume. Nice overtone with leather, and a wild high with a wand. Excellent rim sustain. Exceptional old bowl. With overtones at B4, B5, F#6, F#7.
