Extra thick and heavy Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl with clear sound

4068 Extra thick and heavy Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl with clear sound

Extra thick and heavy old style large Thadobati with clear artwork behind rich patina. The bowl has a substantial feel with a pleasing complex texture and bright copper sparkles. After an initial burst of higher tones this bowl settles into an incredibly pure and peaceful bass. As a big thick bowl the bass is in the lower 4th octave, so not that low. Still its peaceful and very steady decline in intensity makes for an exceptionally calming soundscape. On the high side the soundscape is a bit unsteady. The single note sustain is fine. The rim on this old bowl is rough with patina, but the kind of roughness that gives a ringing stick grip. You can hear in the recording the pure lower tone with leather and the upper note with wood. With overtones at A#5, A6, F7.
