Weight 5 lb 1oz. (2.3 kilos). Size 29.5 x 14 cm (11 ¾ x 5 ½ inches)
This is a large and versatile high-wall antique Jambati Singing Bowl. It has been expertly forged and has finely hammered even walls, a level sheered lip, circles at its centre, and a single decorative band encircling the outer rim.
The fundamental note is a low perfect pitch second octave F# (90Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to middle C (265Hz) if a wooden ringer is employed. This bowl has bags of vibrant energy and is capable of producing the OM sound, and also fountains if played with a little water inside.
This antique Jambati is in good structural condition and clean, with an attractive golden bronze colour.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are all included in the price.
