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 the 40mm leather-padded “Fat Boy” Mallet. Lastly you’ll hear the fundamental played with the leather end of the same 40mm leather-padded “Fat Boy” 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.
