Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. Note G#2 (Throat Chakra)

Weight 3.68 kilos (8 lb 2 oz).  Size 36 x 17.5 cm (14 ¼ x 6 ¾ inches)


This massive and majestic antique Jambati Singing bowl is incredibly beautiful.  Dating from the 18th Century, possibly earlier, it has a huge diameter of 14 ¼ inches, weighs 3.68 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 some important ceremonial purpose.



It has a fabulous almost perfect pitch low second octave G#2 fundamental (102Hz) with a pronounced beat when struck with a padded mallet or played around the with a suede ringer.    The fundamental E2 is sometimes accompanied by a subtle Eb4 (306Hz) harmonic. 


This heavy 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 fine hammered walls have been superbly crafted, and made even finer and smoother with centuries of handling and use.   It has a smooth triangulated lip , decorative bands around the outer wall, and circles at the centre.  It has the most beautiful full-bodied shape.


This bowl benefits from a rare and very nice dot-punched inscription between the decorative bands encircling the outer rim, a sure indication of the high esteem in which it was held by a former keeper.



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


This massive, ancient, and wonderful bowl is 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: ( 3 struck notes and 1 played note with suede ringer).
