3066 Big Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl with exceptional soundscape

Spectacular, super thick large size Thadobati lingam. Great example of this rare type with a smooth hand worn finish indicating lots of ceremonial use. There is plenty of artwork to be seen, including deep incuse lines on the broad inward facing rim. The sound is as good as the look, exceptionally harmonious spectacular longevity and great off the rim. The soundscape is complex you can clearly hear three levels with their different oscillations. There is a real texture to the sound, no simple tuning fork waveform. There is enough in there to touch you on multiple levels at the same time. The sustain is just amazing for this size and thickness. The recording goes out to 40 seconds – with significant volume, the bowl will ring well beyond a minute. Off the rim you need our biggest ringing stick to move the sound out with leather. The sound is clean and even a bit hollow like a Mani, very different from the lively strike. With wood you can have good volume with half a turn and whatever volume you want some spins later. Here indulge in a soft massive wand for smooth contact. Sustain is excellent off the rim, especially with wood. With overtones at D6, C#7, G#7, G#5.
