Large Himalayan Ultabati Singing Bowl. D2/A2 Notes (Sacral & Third Eye Chakras)
Weight 5 lb 12 oz (2.6 Kilos). 32 x 14.5 cm (approx. 12 ½ x 5 ¾ inches)
This is a large and handsome Himalayan Ultabati Singing Bowl with wonderful vibrant energy and a powerful voice…an excellent and very low second octave D fundamental. The note is the same whether struck or played around the rim with a heavy suede ringer, but the rim note is particularly resonant and beautiful with a subtle A2/3 and Eb2 harmonics. With a little water inside, this bowl will also produce great fountains.
This bowl has the typical Ultabati caldron-like form with fine even walls, splayed collar, and out-turned downward-sloping lip. There are several decorative circles in the centre of the bowl and an incised line forming a collar below the rim on the outside wall. This line also defines a change in surface texture, with smooth above and hammered below. This bowl has an attractive antique bronze colour with some patina.
Old singing bowls of this size and quality are extremely rare, and the excellent and clean condition of this one suggests that it has been highly prized by its previous keepers.
A Tibetan brocade bowl cushion, a heavy teak and suede ringer, and the padded mallet featured in the photograph are all included in the price.
Listen: (2 struck notes and 1 played note)
Note: As this is an unusually heavy bowl there will be a surcharge to cover the additional cost of shipping and insurance to destinations outside the UK. Overseas buyers will later be invoiced at cost for any shipping and insurance shortfall (estimated to be between $60 and $100 to USA and Canada).
