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.
This means “jewel” in Tibetan, although we believe the style hails originally from India. We started finding these only in the last four to five years in the Himalayas. They are the only example that we know of which is a conically shaped, self amplifying singing bowl. They tend to produce an almost pure sine wave, and their rim tone and fundamental are the same. Sometimes, higher harmonics can be heard in the struck tones, but they tend to be octaves rather than tritones.
