Antique Diatonic Quarter Tone

Rim Set #0218

- SOLD -

This is an authentic antique, Master-quality® 6-piece Tibetan Singing Bowl Set based on the rims in diatonic quarter tone tuning. 

The set includes one each of the following singing bowls:

*C -10 Hz., Buddha 7 1/4" diameter, thick, circa 20th Century

*D  -8 Hz., Buddha 7 1/4" diameter, extra-thick, circa 17th Century

*E -10 Hz., Buddha 7" diameter, extra-thick, circa 17th Century

*F -10 Hz., Buddha  7 1/4" diameter, extra-thick, circa 17th Century

*G -10 Hz., Buddha 7" diameter, extra-thick, circa 17th Century

*A -10 Hz., Void 7 1/2" diameter, extra-thick, DOUBLE-BLUE, circa 16th Century

The fundamental tones are: F +2 Hz., G# -8 Hz., A +6 Hz., B -10 Hz., C +10 Hz., and D +2 Hz.

**NOTE: the A -10 Hz bowl is a Double-blue. Double-blues are the "Stradivarius" of singing bowls - the best of the best! Of the five criteria for Master-quality®, Double-blues surpass the rest of the collection in multiple criteria. Their sublime tones form palpable matrices in the air, and linger significantly longer than most singing bowls. The implications of a longer sustain in a healing or meditation context is key, because of the increased "mileage" you get from every strike or rim tone. Also important is the characteristically deeper penetration potential of these powerful pieces. They represent the top half of a percentage in quality of OUR collection. 

This piece has a large, triangulated lip which has a slight, 3/8" inch long depression on its edge, visible in the photo above.  While rimming, keep the mallet vertical, and it will play beautifully.
