Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. Notes: G2/F#2 (Throat/Heart Chakras)

Weight 3.71 kilos (8 lb 3 oz).  Size 35.5 x 18 cm (14 x 7 inches)


This glorious and massive antique Jambati Singing bowl is incredibly beautiful.  Dating from the 18th Century, possibly earlier, it has a huge diameter of 14 inches, weighs 3.71 kilos, and is one of the largest antique Jambati Singing Bowl in my entire collection.  Antique Jambati bowls approaching anything like this size are extremely rare and sought after for their beautiful low resonant and powerful voices and long sustains.  This huge superior quality bowl was probably commissioned by or for a monastery or temple, where it would have served an important ceremonial purpose.



It has a fabulous second octave fundamental that sits on the cusp between G2 and F#2 (95Hz - 96Hz) and subtly flickers between the two notes when struck with a padded mallet or played around the with a suede ringer.  The vibrant energy of this bowl will also produce the OM sound with a heavy suede ringer, and probably fountains too if played with a little water inside.  This bowl is best placed on a cushion for playing, and will be supplied with a large Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion.



This massive bowl is actually relatively light for its size because its graceful and exceptionally finely hammered walls have been superbly crafted, and made even finer and smoother with centuries of handling and use.   It has a lovely full deep-bodied form (my personal favourite), smooth triangulated lip, decorative bands around the outer wall and circles at the centre.  It also benefits from a small inscription.



It is in an excellent state of preservation, structurally sound, clean and stain-free, with a fabulous golden bronze colour.


This beautiful, ancient, and wonderful bowl is a personal favourite; a unique treasure that would crown any collection!


 A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and 2 ringers are all included in the price.


Listen: ( 4 struck notes and 2 played notes, heavy suede ringer, then lighter one)
