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 interesting bowl is no exception.
This antique Ultabati is smaller and lighter than usual and therefore easier to hold and play for an extended period. It has interesting multi-harmonic sonic qualities. The fundamental note has a frequency of 285Hz which is about midway between a Middle C# and a Middle D and this note is accompanied by an almost perfect pitch low second octave G (97Hz). Other harmonics are also present including G#2 (101Hz) and even an A. It’s a responsive bowl and easy to play.
This Ultabati is in good structural condition, and clean, with pronounced decorative hammer marks below the outer rim, and an attractive dark bronze colour.
The price includes a Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and a teak and suede ringer.
