Weight 4 lb 12 oz. (2.15 kilos). Size 27 x 12.5 cm (10 ¾ x 5 inches)
This large and heavy antique Jambati Singing Bowl is supplied in its ‘as found’ condition with all its aged patina intect, although it could be cleaned if required. Personally I like it as it is.
The fundamental note is a low perfect pitch second octave G# (103Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to a middle Eb (304Hz) if a wooden ringer is employed.
This is an older bowl with a finely forged wall and a sheered lip. There are faint circles at its centre and a single decorative band around the outer rim.
The condition of this bowl is very good for its age, with just a couple of scratches and virtually stain free. It has a dark mustard bronze colour with an aged patina that could be removed if desired, although I personally prefer my bowls to look their age.
A Tibetan silk brocade cushion, a padded striker, and a suede ringer are all included in the price.
Listen: (3 struck notes and 2 played notes, suede ringer then wood)
