Weight 1.13 kilos (2lb 7 oz). Size 22 x 10 cm (approx. 8 ¾ x 4 inches)
This medium size antique Jambati Singing Bowl has an excellent third octave F fundamental (172Hz) with a long sustain when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to a fifth octave C harmonic (521Hz) if a wooden ringer is employed.
This nicely forged bowl is typical of the Jambati form. It has very attractive small hammer markings to its outer wall, and decorative incised bands forming a collar around the outer rim.
It has a matt bronze colour and is clean and in excellent structural condition.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker and a ringer are all included in the price.
Listen: (2 struck notes and 2 played notes, suede ringer then wood)
