Exceptional Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl with sweet high pitch

4084 Exceptional Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl with sweet high pitch

Beautiful super thick old Thadobati with extensive artwork and a rare broad inner facing rim. The bowl is a burnished gold, polished long ago to a deep mirror finish and now displaying a new level of patina. The arduously hand etched artwork is sharp and the broad rim deeply etched. An absolute showpiece of a bowl. The fact that the sound matches the incredible looks makes this a truly exceptional bowl. Sweet high pitched soundscape, really the upper limit for this size Thadobati. Harmony is premium, very nicely arranged tones. The fundamental tone has a strong pulse to it and is the most prominent presence throughout. Longevity is very good – which is not a given with these big super thick bowls. There is really just one way to play the rim of this bowl, a substantial leather stick. The recording is one spin. Rated exceptional. This bowl has an amazing patina, I can imagine it on someone’s shelf for a couple of decades subtly deepening its almost etheric glow. With overtones at C#6, .
