9988 Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with complex background tones #9988

1. Best L 6 Large Medium Mallet single tap.
2. Rim Play: N102 Medium Ringing Stick wood followed by FP Ebony Wand

Manipuri with the vestiges of elaborate etching. Very nice bright patina. Smoothly bouncing fundamental and overtones, there is something in the relationship between the oscillations that comes across as really special, especially overlaid with the complex background tones. Unusual and exceptional. Premium plus harmony. Fine sustain. OK wood rim play, you get some of the fluttering complexity and if you like the tones they are easy to spin. Really what is exceptional about the bowl is the totality of the soundscape which you’ll only hear played with a mallet. With overtones at F#5, E6, C#7.
