About the Sound Sample:
IMPORTANT-- Use your EARPHONES to enjoy & experience the true sound of this singing bowl ! (Especially with laptops, tablets, mobile and cellphones as their speakers cannot accurately reproduce the richness and wide dynamic range of a singing bowl's tones.)
First you'll hear the sound of this singing bowl struck on its upper outside edge with a Tibetan-wool padded mallet. This blends into the second sound which is the same singing bowl played around the outside rim with the included leather mallet, then around the rim with the wood side of the mallet, and last the struck tone again but this time a little softer.
Singing Bowl type: "Stem"
A relatively rare type of singing bowl which has a raised ring attached (usually soldered) to the outside bottom of the bowl This ring is useful as a grip when the bowl is used in sound healing applications as the bowl can easily be waved around various parts of the patient's body. Stylistically a comparison can be made to the porcelain stem cups used by Tibetan nobility, although these have a longer stem.
