Large Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with sequentially unfolding tones

8336 Large Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with sequentially unfolding tones

Balanced and harmonious soundscape. The first sound you hear is the first overtone at D5, clear as a bell. As that note settles down the solid bass strike tone becomes evident as well as the active second overtone. The bowl has many overtones, almost a dozen. When tapped the bowl has excellent sustain. When played with a stick the sustain provides a long tail once you lift off the bowl. Easy stick play with both leather and wood. With overtones at G#4, D5, C#6, D#7.
