Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a rapidly fluttering primary tone

9426 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a rapidly fluttering primary tone

Silky smooth Manipuri with no traces of interior art and many worn exterior lines. The bowl is bright with faint shadows inside and out. It is on the thick side of average, quite heavy for its size. Powerful bowl, it has enough mass to send the sound right into your hand – a fine body bowl. The soundscape flutters and pulses, complexity and harmonious. Excellent longevity – even with the visceral sound. Fine rim play. Bass is pretty pure with leather, once you get it going. Spectacular wood play – it really takes off with just a couple of spins. Successive overtones with simple wood and then a hard wand. Excellent rim longevity. With overtones at E5, E6, D#7.
