    Description

    This beautiful machined and hand hammered Brass Singing Bowl is the smallest in our 'Mountain' range from Nepal. It comes with its own striker and is supplied un-boxed. Hand beaten bowls have more complex and overtone rich range of sounds than machine made bowls, but there is more of a knack to playing them. This is quite a small bowl and is pitched around D, 587Hz. Please note that all dimensions are approximate. Supplied by a BAFTS Importer.

    HOW TO PLAY : Rest the singing bowl in the palm of the hand; hold smaller bowls on the fingertips. Hold the striker in the middle with all fingertips pointing downwards. Gently tap the striker against the side of the bowl to 'warm it up'. With an even pressure, rub the striker clockwise around the outside rim of the bowl. Use a full arm movement just like stirring a big pan of soup. Try to keep the striker straight and remember to apply pressure. Let the sound build up slowly as the singing bowl picks up the vibration.
