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

9557 Adorned Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a woo-woo primary tone

Bright Manipuri with clear punch circles inside and vestiges on the rim. A worn adorned bowl. This bowl has woo-woo written all over it. The primary tone pulses strongly and evenly three beats per second. A regular roller coaster. There is a bit of singing in the background to support the sound initially but over the long run all that is left is the woo-woo. Very good longevity. Wood rim play is good, those solid supporting overtones can be played strongly. No hint of the woo-woo, though. That is n the leather zone and hard to play. With overtones at E5, D#6, D#7.
