About the Sound Sample

First is the sound of the bowl struck on its upper outside edge with the included Tibetan-wool padded mallet. The second sound is the same bowl being played around the outside rim with the 99-1 Xcelite mallet. Lastly, you will hear the bowl played around the upper outside rim with the included “Fat Boy” leather-padded mallet.
 

“Lingam” singing bowl

Perhaps the rarest of all the Tibetan/Himalayan type singing bowls, this type has a conical protrusion coming out of the center of the bowl’s interior basin. Although called “Lingam” bowls (due to the association of the phallus worshipped by followers of Shiva in the Hindu tradition) in the Buddhist, Bon, Hindu and Jain traditions, this protrusion with its often accompanying ring lines is also symbolic of Mt. Kailash and the practice of circumambulating this most sacred mountain in western Tibet.

Package Includes:

  • 3-piece Professional Mallet Set (a medium Himalayan hardwood Tibetan-wool padded gong mallet, a 30mm Himalayan hardwood wool-padded mallet, and a 45mm Himalayan hardwood leather-padded “Fat Boy” mallet).
  • Tibetan silk-brocade Singing Bowl Cushion (color/style may vary).
  • Tips and Information Brochure: historical information, general metallurgical analysis, how to hold the mallet, playing around the rim, and advanced techniques.
