About This Singing Bowl

This spectacular, hand-forged bowl was lovingly hand-etched by an artist in Patan, Nepal. The interior, center image is of a dragon in a ring of fire. The exterior wall features the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Tibetan Buddhism. The dragon has its origins in Chinese carvings from the Neolithic period and is one of the earliest representational symbols to occur in human art. Like its counterpart of the Snake (legless dragon) of Hinduism, the dragon represents creative energy or transformation. This bowl is a stunning creation both visually and auditorily.
 

 

About the Sound Sample

Due to the ultra-low bass tones and subtle harmonics we highly recommend that you use earphones when critically listening to singing bowl sound samples.

First, you’ll hear the bowl struck on its upper outside edge with a large gong mallet. Next, you’ll hear the mid-tone played around the upper outside rim with the leather end of the 45mm “Fat Boy” mallet. Lastly, you’ll hear the fundamental tone played around the outside wall with the leather end of the same 45mm Himalayan hardwood leather-padded “Fat Boy” mallet.

NOTE: The strike and mid-tone sustain for over two minutes upon release of the playing mallet, and the fundamental tone sustains for 1:50 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.

 

Package Includes:

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