4778 Extra Thick Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl with balanced high sound #4778

1. Best L 4 Large Low Mallet followed by L 8 single tap.
2. Rim Play: N103 Large Ringing Stick leather then wood

Extra thick and super heavy Thadobati, a rare 3 pounder. Nicely balanced high tone soundscape with a pronounced pulsing woo-woo fundamental and solid subtle overtone. Additionally, however, there is a high pitch on initial strike, the signature of a hidden crack somewhere in the great mass of metal. It is pretty hard to hear and only lasts a few seconds, I’ve tried to isolate it at the end of the first recording. Super easy rim play and simple, too. Whatever implement used the bowl goes to the fundamental. What is really nice is how easy it is, the patina makes for great grip. Marked down by half for the sonic flaw. This is a fantastic, very old bowl at a great price. I’m sure it will end up in pride of place in someone’s home. With overtones at A#5, A6, F7.
