Availability: In Stock
Price: £3,100.00


Notes C4, D4, Eb4, E4, F4, F#4, G4, G#4, A4


This is an extremely rare 4th octave set of 9 antique Lingam Singing and Healing Bowls.  Antique Lingam bowls have distinctive physical and sonic qualities and are used in sacred and ritual ceremonies.  They are so rare that most singing bowl collectors and practitioners will never have encountered or handled a single bowl, so one can only imagine how special this set of nine is.



These lingam bowls have diameters between 5 ¼ and 6 ¼ inches and have been personally matched as far as possible by age (18th and 19th Century), condition, shape, octave and pitch.  They all feature lingams at their centre and a matching navel or yoni underneath and have been tuned to the fundamental note when struck with a suede-covered wooden ringer.  In most cases the played rim note is the same.  The C4, D4 and A4 are particularly nice; the D4 having a variety of interesting ritual gashes, and the A4 an inscription (a rarity on a Lingam bowl).



All are in excellent structural condition and basically unblemished, but with some being cleaner or having a more aged patina than others.  Each bowl is supplied with a cushion and ringer.


Bowl 1. C4 note (268Hz), 5¾ inches, 452 grams.

Bowl 2. D4 note (295Hz), 5 ¾ inches, 393 grams, ritual gashes

Bowl 3. Eb4 note (304Hz), 6 ¼ inches, 484 grams

Bowl 4. E4 note (324Hz), 6 inches, 627 grams

Bowl 5. F4 note (343Hz), 5 ½ inches, 573 grams.

Bowl 6. F#4 note (362Hz), 5 ½ inches, 585 grams

Bowl 7. G4 note (382Hz), 5 ¼ inches, 429 grams

Bowl 8. G#4 note (406Hz), 5 ½ inches, 474 grams

Bowl 9. A4 note (443Hz), 5 ¾ inches, 639 grams, inscribed


NOTE: A complete chromatic or Chakra set consists of 7 notes (C,D,E,F,G,A,B) or 12 if you include the sharps and flats (Eb,F#,G#,Bb).  If a 12-piece set is desired, it might be possible to add the missing C4, Eb4 and bb4 separately as and when they become available. Please check the website.
