Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. F3 Note (Heart Chakra)
Weight 4 lb 5 oz (1.96 Kilos). 24 x 10 cm (approx. 9 ½ x 4 inches)
For a medium large antique singing bowl this Jambati is a real heavyweight at just under 2 kilos. It’s a top quality bowl too…with a powerful third octave F fundamental whether struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim.
This old bowl is beautifully forged. It has thick even walls and a strong lip, and finely incised lines forming a decorated collar below the rim. There are two pairs of concentric circles inside the basin.
The condition of this bowl is very good. It has a nice golden colour and is largely free of blemishes and stains.
This is a very handsome bowl that speaks of quality. It has a beautiful voice and is very responsive and easy to play…but, like some larger bowls, its weight might be a challenge for some if handheld and played for any length of time.
A Tibetan brocade bowl cushion and a teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
