Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl.   Notes: F#3 & C5 (Heart & Root Chakras)

Weight 1 lb 10 ¾ oz. (0.76 kilos).   Size 20.5 x 7 cm (8 x 2 ¾ inches)

 

A nice quality 19thcentury Manipuri singing bowl featuring decorative sun motifs (punched dots surrounded by circles) all around the lip and also set within a pair of concentric circles at its centre.

 

 

The fundamental note is a third octave F# (185Hz) when struck with a padded mallet, while the rim note is a fifth octave C (531Hz) if played with a suede ringer, and a fifth octave B (1,000Hz) if a wooden ringer is employed.

 

This bowl is in very nice condition for its age, clean and virtually stain free. 

 

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.

 

Listen: (3 struck notes and 1 played note)
