Thick hybrid bowl with the flat bottom of a Thadobati, shape of a Manipuri and rim like and old Jambati. It has a golden color and a faint inner circle. It has an unusual golden almost paint inside – evidence of ceremonial use. Active high tone soundscape where the overtone sings and the main tone flutters. Active and energizing. Excellent sustain, especially considering the small size. Surprising power off the rim. Simple wood plays two tones, the real star is the ebony wand which spins the 2 KHz. overtone to high volume. With overtone at B6.
