About the Sound Sample

First, this small antique singing bowl is struck on its upper outside edge with a 22mm leather-padded mallet. Next, the rim tone is played with the wooden end of the same 22mm leather-padded mallet.

 

Bowl Type: “Manipuri”

Called Manipuri throughout the Himalayas. Said to come from the Manipur region (in the eastern Himalayas near Nagaland), but this shape is also typically Tibetan as well. Their walls are lower in ratio to the diameter, with a gradually sloping base. This type of singing bowl is thick to extra-thick, often with a triangulated lip, and sometimes decorated with tooled or engraved sacred geometric patterns such as the circle and dot motif. Typically they range from approximately 4 inches up to a little over 10 inches, although they are now rare in these larger sizes. Tones, likewise, range from the second to the fifth octave.
