About the Sound Sample

First you’ll hear the bowl struck on its upper outside edge with a 30mm Himalayan hardwood wool-padded mallet. Next you’ll hear the rim tone  played around the outside rim with a 30mm leather-padded mallet.

Bowl Type: “Shabda”

A rare shape of singing bowl with an unusual, cantilevered lip 1/4″ in diameter. It is broader at the base with a slightly concave wall.  The most distinctive characteristic of this style of bowl is that its exterior wall is completely covered in an incised, parallel line pattern. On this particular piece, however, most of its wall decorations have been worn away over time.

  • Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Shakti.
  • Tibetan silk-brocade Singing Bowl Cushion (shown above) in your choice of Tibetan Red, Royal Blue, or Plum.
  • 2-piece Professional Mallet Set (a 30mm Tibetan-wool padded and leather-padded mallet).
