Large Himalayan Ultabati Singing Bowl. G Note (Thoat Chakra)
Weight 5 lb 1 ¾ oz (2.32 Kilos). 31 x 14.5 cm (approx. 12 ¼ x 5 ¾ inches)
This is a Huge and spectacular old Ultabati singing bowl with a beautiful low fundamental 3rd octave G note. The note is the same whether struck or played around the rim with a heavy suede ringer, but other subtle overtones may be teased out with a little practice. With a little water inside, this bowl will also produce amazing fountains. However, it’s the vibrational energy and the sound that will impress.
Old singing bowls of this size and quality are extremely rare, and the excellent and clean condition of this one suggests that it has been highly prized by its previous keepers.
It has the typical Ultabati caldron-like form with fine even walls, splayed collar, and thick out-turned downward-sloping lip. This is a very handsome and impressive bowl with unique sonic qualities.
A large Tibetan brocade bowl cushion, a heavy teak and suede ringer, and the padded mallet featured in the photograph are all included in the price.
Listen: (2 struck notes and 1 played rim note)
Note: As this is an unusually heavy bowl there will be a surcharge to cover the additional cost of shipping and insurance to destinations outside the UK. Overseas buyers will later be invoiced at cost for any shipping and insurance shortfall (estimated to be around $100 to USA and Canada).
