Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with fast paced, energizing sound

9574 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with fast paced, energizing sound

Bright colored Manipuri with traces of what was once extensive artwork. The bowl has punch circles inside and on the rim along with the remnants of the punch and leaf pattern outside. Really interesting combination of sounds. The bowl is fast paced, energizing with lots of rapid oscillations to start – but then you notice this slow lazy overtone smoothly pulsing in what is initially the invisible background but over time becomes more of what you hear. Fascinating. Longevity is excellent. Rim play is also a surprise, that lazy overtone emerges from the pack if you listen long enough. Good highs with a wand, not much grip with leather. With overtones at E5, D6, A#6.
