9804 Large Antique Trapezoid Singing Bowl with simplicity or complexity

1. Best S 5 Small Medium Mallet followed by S 7 single then multiple taps.
2. Rim Play: N105 XL Long Ringing Stick leather low then overtone

Large Trapezoid with smoky patina and seven crisp inner circles. The exterior and rim lines are also clear, a great example of this rare style. Two quite varied soundscapes. With a soft mallet it is almost pure strike tone. It sings away smoothly with very good sustain. With a harder mallet you get the initial complexity of a cow bell, then it settles down into that primary tone. Plays well off the rim with leather, different tones through different techniques With overtones at A#5, B6, F5.
