Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with solid bass and swirling overtones

9466 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with solid bass and swirling overtones

Silky smooth Manipuri with traces of interior art and many worn exterior scratch lines. The bowl is consistently bright inside and out. Soft solid bass and a singing and swirling overtone play well together to start. Another swirling note is audible above. In the end it is the overtone playing, really excellent sustain, the bowl can play for a full minute if you use the B Best Medium high mallet. Great rim play. Bass is strong and pretty pure with leather, successive overtones with simple wood and then a hard wand. Excellent rim longevity. With overtones at E5, D#6, B6, D#7.
