Antique Ultabati singing bowls are now quite rare. This vibrant thin-walled antique Ultabati Singing Bowl has an excellent low second octave G2 fundamental (97/98Hz) struck or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The G2 rim note readily evolves into a lovely middle C#4 (276Hz) and the two notes sing beautifully in harmony. The vibrant energy of this bowl will also produce fountains if played with a little water inside.
This bowl has very fine walls and a simplified form for an Ultabati, although it retains the distinctive caldron-like body, scooped collar and sheered lip. There are decorative circles at its centre, now faint, and a single line encircling the outer rim.
This old Ultabati Singing Bowl bowl shows signs of long use but is structurally sound and clean, with an attractive golden bronze colour.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker and a ringer are all included in the price.
