9400 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl that flutters, swirls and sings

Simple heavy Manipuri with traces of old artwork and smoky original patina. Fluttering bass, swirling middle tone and singing high play together throughout the excellent sustain. Harmonious activity. This small bowl keeps singing like a larger one. Great off the rim which is smooth and solid. It comes to volume easily, overtone with simple wood and higher notes with pretty much any wand. With overtones at C6, B6, B7.
