About the Sound Sample:
IMPORTANT-- Use your EARPHONES to enjoy & experience the true sound of this singing bowl set! (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 the eight singing bowls struck on their upper outside edges with the wool side of the included Tibetan-wool mallet to produce their fundamental tones. Then you'll hear them played around their upper outside edges with the wood side of the same mallet to produce their rim tones.
