Glorious Massive 13½” 18th Century Jambati Temple Singing Bowl – Near Perfect Pitch A2


Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. Note A2 (Third Eye Chakra)

Weight 4.04 kilos (8 lb 15 oz).  Size 33 x 15 cm (13½ x 6¼ inches)

This glorious and massive antique Jambati Singing bowl dates from the 18th Century, possibly earlier.  It has a huge diameter of 13½ inches, weighs over 4 kilos, and is one of the largest antique Jambati Singing Bowls in my collection.  Antique Jambati bowls approaching anything like this size are extremely rare and sought after for their beautiful low resonant powerful voices and long sustains. 

This huge superior quality bowl was probably commissioned by or for a monastery or temple, where it would have served some important ceremonial purpose.

It has a fabulous almost perfect pitch second octave A2 fundamental (112Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the with a suede ringer.  This is a very interesting and complex multi-harmonic bowl and quite difficult to record in a way that isolates its magnificent A2 because other harmonics are often present including Bb3 (233Hz) and F4 (358Hz). This bowl is  responsive and easy to play but requires a heavy suede ringer.  It’s a substantial and very heavy bowl that is best placed on a cushion for playing and will therefore be supplied with a large Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion.

This huge Jambati bowl has been superbly crafted.  It has a beautiful and slightly globular form and a round bottom.  Its hammered walls are particularly attractive with the smooth golden band around the rim contrasting nicely with the darker fine mottled hammer marks below.  It has an unusual inward-sloping triangulated and smooth lip.  There are several decorative bands encircling the rim, and circles at the centre.

This rare 18th century singing bowl is very pretty and a real looker!  It is in an excellent state of preservation, structurally sound, exceptionally clean and stain-free, with an attractive golden bronze colour.

A unique and glorious treasure that would crown any collection!

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and 2 ringers are all included in the price.
