Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. Notes: D2 & A3 (Sacral & Third Eye Chakras)
Weight 4 lb 13 ¼ oz. (2.18 kilos). Size 30 x 12.5 cm (11 ¾ x 5 inches)
This very large antique Jambati Singing Bowl has an exceptionally fine wall and a sheered lip of varying thickness that together give rise to a low voice with a high level of vibrant energy when struck or played around the rim. It is relatively light for its size and therefore quite comfortable to hold and play for an extended period, which is often not the case with large bowls.
The fundamental note is a second octave D (75Hz) when struck with a padded mallet, while the rim note is the harmonic, a third octave A (216-218Hz) when played with a suede or wooden ringer.
This is an older Jambati and little remains of the decorative band around the rim or the circles at its centre, but it is in excellent structural condition for its age and virtually free of stains and blemishes.
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)
