Weight 4 lb 6 oz. (1.99 kilos). Size 28 x 12 cm (11 x 4 ¾ inches)
This is a large versatile superior quality Antique Jambati Singing Bowl with a lovely perfect pitch third octave D fundamental (146Hz) and a long sustain when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The D3 is sometimes accompanied by a C#3 (141Hz) harmonic. The rim note gradually builds and moves to middle A (436Hz) with a suede ringer, or directly if a wooden ringer is employed.
This is a beautifully forged bowl with finely hammered walls that have worn sensually smooth with use over the years. It has a flat triangulated lip, circles at the centre, and decorative incised bands encircling the outer rim.
This 19thcentury bowl is in excellent structural condition, and free of stains and blemishes. Versatile and fabulous!
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
Listen: (2 struck notes and 1 played note with suede ringer).
