Description

  • Traditonal and commonly used in Nepal
  • These Bowls are stunning – hand hammered, brass singing bowls have a wonderfully complex set of overtones and harmonics
  • Each comes unboxed with a purpose made wooden striker
  • Hand beaten bowls have more complex and overtone rich range of sounds, than machine bowls, but there is more of a knack to playing them!

 

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
