Description

This is a Master-quality®,7-piece contemporary High-Wall singing bowl set tuned to the Diatonic scale in the third octave. It includes one bowl each of the following fundamental tones:

C2 67 Hz., High-Wall 15 3/4″ diameter, XX-Thick

D2 73 Hz.(concert pitch), High-Wall 14 1/8″ diameter, Extra-Thick

* A2 111.6 Hz., High-Wall 12″ diameter,XX-Thick

* B2 122 Hz., High-Wall 10” diameter, XX-Thick

 

The rim tones for each bowl are as follows: G#4 404 Hz., A4 439.5 Hz., B4 495 Hz., C#4 536 Hz., D4 608 Hz,  E5 632 Hz., and F5 690 Hz.

 

Note: This is the only contemporary Diatonic fundamental set we have offered in 23 years. It took over two years and three collections to complete. The C fundamental is in quarter-tone tuning because virtually all of the concert pitch C’s being manufactured now have dominant mid-tones. The mix of this set is almost 13 minutes long and the strikes for bowls #1, #3 and #5 sustain for approximately 2 minutes. Bowls #4 and #6 have the longest sustaining fundamentals, over 2 minutes each. Enjoy the sounds!

Sound sample

First you will hear each singing bowl being struck on their upper outside edges with a large Himalayan hardwood gong mallet. Next you will hear the fundamental of each bowl being played with either the 45mm or 40mm leather-padded “Fat Boy” mallet.

Package includes:

* 5-piece Professional Mallet Set (a large Tibetan-wool padded gong mallet, a 45mm Himalayan hardwood leather-padded “Fat Boy mallet, and a 40mm Himalayan hardwood “Fat Boy” leather-padded mallet).

* Tips and Information Brochure (Historical information, general metallurgical analysis, how to hold the mallet, playing around the rim, and advanced techniques).
