Ultabati bowls are known for their caldron-like form, their remarkable vibrant energy, and their ability to produce very low notes that resonate at a frequency that will produce fountains when played with a little water inside.
This antique Ultabati is smaller and lighter than usual and therefore easier to hold and play than most low octave bowls. The fundamental note is a low second octave B (124Hz) that is virtually perfect pitch. The struck and played notes are the same. This is a responsive bowl that really loves to be played around the rim.
The bowl is in good structural condition, and has attractive leopard-spot hammer marks on the outer wall, while inside there is some copper oxidization. Altogether a very nice bowl.
The price includes a Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and a teak and suede ringer.
