Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a bright brassy high pitch

9500 Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a bright brassy high pitch

Tiny Manipuri with traces of what was once extensive artwork. The bowl has a deep rounded shape and was originally quite a bit thicker. Bright and brassy high pitched soundscape with a pulsing primary tone and singing high. Very resonant and complex with good longevity for such a small light bowl. Tiny bowls can be challenging to play off the rim. This bowl does ok with basic wood. If you really want to hear what it has the yew wand’s mixture of soft and skinny is best. There is hidden power to be tapped with persistence. With overtones at D6, C#7, A7.
