Deep Mirror Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with Lively and complex

9925 Deep Mirror Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with Lively and complex

Tiny Manipuri with a brilliant burnished gold deep mirror interior. The bowl once had elaborate etching evidenced by the remaining interior and rim punch circles. Lively and complex with excellent sustain, this bowl is very responsive to different mallets. The recording accentuates the high complexity, a softer touch would sound deeper. High frequency flutters are what shapes the impression. Not much play with leather, wood however reveals overtones and – with a tiny wand – high volume as well. With overtones at A5, , .
