Weight 1.17 kilos (2 lb 9 ½ oz). Size 23.5 x 11 cm (9 ¼ x 4 ¼ inches)
This medium size antique Jambati Singing Bowl has finely beaten walls, a rounded bottom and a narrow triangulated lip. There are decorative circles at its centre and incised bands encircling the outer rim.
The fundamental note is a third octave C3 (133Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The C3 rim note will gradually evolve into a middle G4 (400Hz) harmonic if desired.
This bowl is structurally sound and basically clean, and has a mottled dark matt bronze colour.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
Listen: (3 struck notes and 2 played notes, suede ringer then wood)
