Antique Singing Bowl.  Notes B3 & E5G (Crown & Solar Plexus Chakras)
Weight 1.09 kilos (2 lb 6 ¼ oz).   Size 17 x 9 cm (approx. 6 ¾ x 3 ½ inches)

 

This rare bell-shaped singing bowl is believed to date from the 18th century, and looks and feels every bit its age.  There are decorative circles at its centre, and incised bands at intervals around its outer wall.

 

 

The fundamental struck note is a third octave B (248Hz) that is very close to concert pitch when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer, while the rim note changes to a fifth octave E (674Hz) with a wooden ringer.

 

An interesting and characterful antique singing bowl supplied in its ‘as found’ condition (uncleaned), with evidence of long use but structurally sound!

 

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a ringer are included in the price.

 

Note: Audio clips coming soon.
