Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a woo-woo after initial intensity

9556 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a woo-woo after initial intensity

Small Manipuri with a long clear inscription added long after the bowl was made. The bowl is quite smooth from long use. A strong pulsing woo-woo comes to prominence after an initial burst of intensity. Longevity is fair, harmony good. Good rim play, plenty of mass to lean into and a smooth rim to work with. Much better longevity off the rim than with a mallet. Play with simple and midrange woods. With overtones at G5, F#6, D7.
