About the Sound Sample

First you will hear the bowl struck on its upper outside edge with the included Himalayan hardwood Tibetan-wool padded mallet. Next you’ll hear the rim tone of the bowl being played around the outside rim with the Xcelite 99-1 mallet. Lastly you’ll hear the fundamental tone of the bowl being played around the upper outside wall with the leather end of the leather-padded mallet.

Bowl Type: “Bodhi”

A medium sized Thadobati variety singing bowl. It’s distinguishing characteristic is its outwardly turned lip. When this type was first discovered it reminded us of the spreading branches of the Bodhi tree– hence the name.
