This is an authentic antique hybrid, Master-quality 7-piece Diatonic Tibetan Singing Bowl Set based on the rims in diatonic tuning.
This set includes mostly antique Master-Quality singing bowls and one contemporary singing bowl for each of the following rim tones:
* C -2 Hz., Buddha 7 1/4" diameter, Thick, Circa 18th Century
* D -4 Hz., Special 7 1/2" diameter, Extra-Thick, Circa 16th Century
* E 675 Hz. (concert pitch), Buddha 7 1/4" diameter, DOUBLE-BLUE, XX-Thick, Circa 18th Century
* F -2 Hz. Void 6 7/8" diameter, XX-Thick, Circa 17th Century
* G -2 Hz. Buddha 6 1/2" diameter, Extra-Thick, Circa 17th Century
* A -2 Hz. Bodhi 6", XX-Thick, Circa 17th Century
* B 987 Hz. (concert pitch), Cup 5 5/8", Thick, Contemporary
The fundamental tones are in the keys of: F +10 Hz., G# -2 Hz., A +10 Hz., B -10 Hz., C# +4 Hz., E -10 Hz., and B 987 Hz. (concert pitch).
NOTE: This set has been in the making for at least three years. It is almost impossible to find the unusual A rim and B rim sizes in thadobatis anymore, so we have completed the A rim with a rare 17th century Bodhi, and have a contemporary, hand-forged bowl with a B concert pitch 987 Hz. rim tone that has an extraordinarily long sustain. The set also includes a Double-Blue Special with a concert pitch E 695 Hz. After a minor amount of sanding to the rim of this bowl to correct a couple of nicks, its rim tone that lasts 1 minute and 20 seconds. The set also includes a circa 17th century Void with a F -2 rim tone, and a circa 16th century Special 7 ½” with a D -4 rim tone. This set may very be the last of the great, Master-quality sets we may be able to complete in a fifth octave, diatonic scale.
