Low Manipuri Chakra Set
sM1 Low Manipuri Chakra Set
1. 7 Bowl Chakra set
2. 8 Bowl Chakra set played with three different mallets
One of the most common frameworks for chakra sets is to have whole notes spanning one octave. The 7 chakra sequence is C# D E F G A B. Some teachers like to add the first note of the next octave for 8 notes C# D E F G A B C.#
All the antique singing bowls in this chakra set have been selected for superior internal harmony. A lot of care has been taken to make sure the tones go well together. This is not as simple as picking notes because notes alone do not guarantee a smooth flow of sound up and down. Overtones and timbre play an important part. These carefully selected antique singing bowls all blend together for a wonderful total sound. One challenge in assembling this set is that Manipuri bowls as low as C and D in the third octave are rare, and generally large.
The 7 bowl chakra set spans the third octave with the optional 8th note being a fourth octave C. All bowls are Manipuri style for consistency in timbre and ease of play. The bowls in the set are 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
All bowls are labeled with note and octave as well as our identifying number.
Add the 8th bowl to the set for $125. This bowl is selected to match the other 7 bowls with a deep fourth octave C.
About the recordings:
The first sound clip is seven 3rd octave bowls struck once with a Best Singing Bowls precision large low mallet (L 4). With this mallet you hear the center of the soundscape for the bowls. The second recording is multiple taps of all 8 bowls with the full series of large Best Singing Bowls precision mallets starting with the very low L 2 then low L 4 and medium L 6. This gives you a feel for the different moods the bowls are capable of. Each set is individual with slight variations in tone

Certificates for 7 or 8 bowls cost a total of $125. Please allow three days for certificates as each bowl needs to be photographed in addition to the physical examination.
