Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a clear woo-woo primary tone

9406 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a clear woo-woo primary tone

Manipuri with a thick rim and brassy patina. Bright soundscape with a clear woo-woo primary tone and distinct overtone register flutter. About 10 seconds into the ring a spinning next level up tone emerges. By the end you’re left with that overtone. Very good harmony and sustain, excellent resonance. Rim play is overtones, only with wood. Basic wood gives a pure A#5 while a hard wand plays the next highest level in the soundscape. Fine rim longevity. With overtones at A#5, A6, F7.
