Thick Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl that looks like molten putty

2365 Thick Antique Thadobati Singing Bowl that looks like molten putty

Extra thick Thadobati with a golden brass finish. The bowl was polished long ago This unusual bowl looks like it was made out of putty and formed by hand. It is uniformly thick from top to bottom. The high points at the bottom of the bowl which are worn smooth attest to the bowl’s age. An unusual feature of this bowl is that it contains 0.2% titanium, the same titanium that you would find in high end cookware. You can be assured this was not added on purpose but instead was a trace metal in the alloy the maker used for the bowl. We acquired this bowl in 2012.

A wild initial soundscape with a lot of overtone settles very quickly into an evenly oscillating primary tone. It is a soundscape that gets you to take notice, then provides a single tone to focus on. Sustain on the overtone is good. The bowl is incredibly solid and can be struck with force. A challenging stick bowl, both primary strike and overtone may be played. The only wand to use with the bowl is the hardest ebony.With overtones at F6, A7.
