About the Sound Sample

First, you’ll hear the sound of the bowl struck on its upper outside edge with a medium wool-padded gong mallet. Next, you’ll hear the rim tone played with the leather end of a 30mm leather-padded mallet. Lastly, you’ll hear the fundamental tone played with the leather end of the 40mm leather-padded “Fat Boy” mallet.

NOTE: This High-wall singing bowl possesses a rare, near-perfect fifth intervallic relationship between the G# fundamental and C# rim tones. The rim tone has a beautiful, rich tone with a nice and even decay. The fundamental tone also has a very rich and balanced tone, with a sustain that lasts nearly 1.5 minutes upon release of the playing mallet.

 

“High-wall” singing bowl

Called Jambati in the Himalayas, the High-wall type is the largest diameter variety of all the Tibetan singing bowls. They are highly prized for their deep basso profundo Om tones. Fundamental tones can range from the second to the third octave of a piano. The rim tones can spread into the fifth octave.
