Weight 5 lb 5 ½ oz. (2.43 kilos). Size 28.5 x 11.5 cm (11 ¼ x 4 ½ inches)
This large antique flat-bottomed Jambati singing bowl has unusually thick walls and is therefore quite heavy for its size. It has a lightly grooved lip, decorative bands encircling the outer rim, and circles at its centre.
It has an interesting and beautiful voice when struck with a padded mallet, as the pulsating fundamental fluctuates between a second octave B (126Hz) and a third octave C (130Hz). The rim note is much the same but can switch to a middle G (385Hz) depending upon the type of ringer employed.
This is a very nice example of this heavy bowl type, structurally sound, clean and stain-free.
A Tibetan silk brocade cushion, a padded striker, and a suede ringer are all included in the price.
