s50 Hand Assembled 50 Piece World Class Antique Singing bowl Set
To assemble a set like this start with 20,000 bowls. Cull out the best 1,000 or 5%. Ship the bowls to California. Take the bowls and lay them out by tone and by type. Then start playing them listening for relationships. Eventually assemble groups of bowls. Lay them out like strings of pearls, low to high, clusters close to the same frequency, meditative tone sequences. Make sure there are some extremely high end bowls anchoring the sound in places, be cognizant to include the full range of sub-styles for each bowl type. Then go off weigh, measure and label.
The set contains:
19 Manipuri bowls, range low third octave to high 4th octave – one single tone sequence
20 Thadobati bowl sequence, range low third octave to low 5th octave – one single tone sequence
– 10 small Thadobati bowl sequence

All the bowls are high quality pieces. It contains rare and unusual bowls with interesting features, old bowls 16th to 20th century.
The set is priced at $250 a bowl. Individually priced the bowls would be much higher. There are a lot of big bowls in this set.
The labeling is really helpful, makes it easy to lay the bowls out and associate them. The set comes with full statistics for each bowl, same as all the individual bowls on this website.
This set will be custom assembled. The photos are of a previous set that has been sold.
I have to say it takes a lot of time and energy to put something like this together. It also takes a special ear and eye. There is no bowl in this set that I did not first select over in Asia out of stacks of similar material. They each had to catch my ear and then, when assembling months later, they had to fit into a Gestalt.
Certainly feel free to call me about the set if you are seriously interested.
