3859 Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl with a fluttering high primary tone

Large circle pattern Thadobati with evidence of extensive original etching and smoky patina. This thick old style bowl has a worn crushed rim. Very high toned for such a big bowl with a fluttering high primary note and similarly fluttering overtones. Power and sustain are just ok, also the bowl has a subtle high frequency discontinuity early in the strike. Off the rim the bowl really likes that primary tone it plays smoothly with quite a good sustain off the rim with leather. With a massive wand you can bring out stronger overtone flavors, still with the primary singing too. With overtones at A5, D#6, G#6, D#5.
