Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with jangly highly energetic sound

9901 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with jangly highly energetic sound

Thicker smooth Manipuri with dark patina and two simple interior circles. Complex and jangly, a highly energetic soundscape with much to listen into. Sustain is excellent, really holds the tone. Ok off the rim, the smooth edge means some time to get it moving. Unusually the bowl plays bass softly with leather as well as wood. For overtones you need the hard burnished finish of a wand. With overtones at B5, , .
