- Customer Testimonials
"I just got done purchasing my 3rd bowl from Rain. I had been purchasing specific singing bowls for some time now through other distributors for a specific sound that I've created for live performance. And, then I was introduced to Rain's product through Alexandre Tannous. The product that Rain offers is miles ahead of what can be purchased from anyone else. The tones (overtones), harmonic balance, beautiful appearance and accurate descriptions of the singing bowls from iSingingBowls.com are a thing of beauty. Not only is Rain's dedication to his art and his business humbling but he is just a great person to have a conversation with about creating music with these singing bowls. I've slowly been replacing my current bowls with what Rain offers, and I look forward to working with Rain for a long time to come."

"Rain, my bowls have arrived. They sound incredible, especially the antiques. I think those two are the sweetest sounding bowls I've ever heard. I've spent the past few weeks in Indonesia, where I went to several different shops that source thousands of bowls from Nepal. I listened for hours upon hours with my tuner in hand and headphones of my recordings, looking for my D3. While I found some, I now know what you mean by "dead metal." There was nothing that even came close to the quality of the bowls you found me. I also went to several "sound healing" practitioners around Bali, but was shocked at how out of wack their bowls sounded to me. Not bad, just dead. You've officially turned me into a bowl snob ;) Thank you again!"
"Outstanding quality singing bowl. Description of the bowl and sound files were extremely accurate. Purchased as part of an investigation into the Solfeggio tones. Bowl measured exactly 285 Hz as compared my NCH tone generator. Great product. Thanks."

"Rain is the owner of iSingingBowls.com and he has been working with and importing singing bowls from the Himalayas for 38 years. He is one of the leading experts and importers of the finest singing bowls in the States. His bowls are of extremely high quality. Most importantly he is someone with high knowledge and integrity."

"Have you ever heard a sound that transported you back to a time when the pyramids were built? A sound that reaches down inside side you and turns you inside out? A sound that releases your dreams of creation and primordial ooze and galaxies and the mystery of the aurora borealis? This is what happens to me when I listen to my 16th century Singing bowl I got from Rain Gray | iSingingBowls.
I’ve spent my whole life listening to music and the saxophone. These bowls create and release sounds from another planet and another space. I’ve just started exploring their magic and charm. I hope that everyone can experience the wonder and joy that I have thus far."

"I just wanted to let you know how much I love the singing bowl I purchased. The sound is truly beautiful and will be a valuable addition to meditation. I sounds far better than another bowl I purchased recently (from a different supplier). From now on, when I consider buying another bowl I will deal only with you! Thank you again."

"I'm new to singing bowls. I heard one and fell in love with the sound. When I went to purchase one, I wanted to make sure that I wasn't getting all style and no substance. This bowl is the real deal. It plays beautifully. The tone on the website is indicative of what the bowl sounds like. Even my husband, who's normally skeptical about things like this, was interested in it!"
"Great product, I constantly get compliments on it. Shipping was super fast as well. I'm very satisfied with the purchase and the service."
"I am in love! This bowl is perfection. I have used it many times already. I love the fact that you're able to hear before you buy. It sounded exactly like the sample! It also came with tips, history, and directions. I love knowing the history, because people always ask. It's nice to have a backstory when asked where it came from, as opposed to a commercial product. Thank you, iSingingBowls!!!"
"I love these tingshas--nicely made and finished, They are well tuned to each other, and produce a beautiful, long and resonant ring. Would highly recommend them. And fast shipping, too--thanks!!"
"I currently have all antique singing bowls and I was not sure how I would like newer bowls. When I play these contemporary bowls I can hear the sound of the cosmos. I love these bowls!"
"The singing bowl is sublime, and Rain was delight - he promptly answered all my questions and got me the singing bowl quickly. Thank you Rain!"

"There is a new presence in our home tonight. It lives within the walls of the high wall bowl that arrived recently. Striking or singing the bowl releases the presence that fills the whole room. Rain, thanks again for finding these treasures so we may share in the experience."

"Great Gift! I was looking for the perfect Tibetan Singing Bowl and I found it!!! It was everything and more. I will definitely buy from this company again!!!"
"Very authentic Tibetan singing bowls. Good quality. Highly recommend this to anyone who are interested in buying a singing bowl."
"Wonderful! I love the sound of this bowl and Rain provided personal guidance when I had questions on making my selection. The website is unique in that you can sample the sound of all the bowls... So I blew out my cheap computer speakers! :) "
"Just received the singing bowls. Awesome. Very looong notes & great resonance. Like magic sound. Wow. And thank you for the CD. Incredible sound! Great. Mystic! I'm very happy with everything in the package! thanks a lot. I think I'll buy bigger one when I have money."
"I have an issue now. I got the bowls and I left you feedback for them after spending some time with them. I went in and played them next to my husband as he was laying down and he said it was the most beautiful sounds he had ever heard. I went finally to put your CD on and he slipped off into a deep sleep listening to that and I sat and marveled at what you did to pull that together. I could just imagine how healing it was for your father to hear your bowls singing him back to health. Thank you for such a profound gift, not only in the CD but in the fact that you take the time and heart to bring bowls to other like you do. My problem now is that I love them SO much and I made the big mistake of listening to this one. Can you tell me more about your feelings on this? I played the clip and was playing my bowls with it and I really like them together. Don t be afraid to tell me to just shut my mouth. I will try! Thank you so much for packing them so safely,"
"Outstanding!! Great service, wonderful bowl.This is a wonderful bowl. I selected it based upon the tones of my other bowls. The bowl's tone is exactly what it was on the internet. I will buy again from iSingingBowls!"
"Beautiful bowl, love the sound. I am really pleased with my purchase. Rain and the staff are really responsive to questions and very helpful when choosing bowls."
"Great Customer Service and Amazing Bowl: The bowls are beautiful, sounds terrific, the audio sample on site and the sound of the bowl are exact. I can play the audio file through my sound system, or play the singing bowl and my family can't tell which is which because of the excellent quality of the sound recording.
Customer Service was excellent and answered my questions promptly and understandably. Shipping sent my bowls the day I ordered. Very classy company with beautiful sounding bowls. I will buy from this company again; they've earned my loyalty."

"Much to my surprise, the beautiful bowl arrived this weekend. It is even more lovely than I imagined. Without a doubt, it's one of the sweetest sounding bowls I've ever heard or had the privilege to play. My family was amazed by it, too!
Thanks for offering such exceptional bowls and making the purchasing process such a wonderful experience. So grateful to have found your site!"
"The most beautiful rich sound sings from my bowl. The use of the mallet takes some getting used to but the effort is magical. I can definitely meditate while using this bowl. It is transformative. Love it!"
"These bowls truly are legendary quality. I have already purchased 2 bowls from Rain. So this makes my 3rd. The sound quality in each bowl is fantastic! Rain definitely takes a lot of the guess work out of the picture when looking for quality singing bowls. Thanks Rain!"
"Rain delivers another epic singing bowl! Sure is nice not to have to purchase 200 bowls before I find this kind of quality. There's a lot of value in that aspect alone. And then I also get a truly legendary singing bowl! Thanks Rain!"
"2 more epic bowls! This is starting to become a regular occurrence. Rain sends me bowls, I absolutely love them, and now I find myself writing another review. These bowls are fantastic! I can't say it enough. If you order a bowl from Rain, you're going to get top quality. Thanks Rain!"
"Greetings to iSingingBowls: My wife practices Universal Energy Healing, wishing to include singing bowls with her chakra healing and mediation, she told me about it. As a supportive partner I did some research and suggested building a set of antique Himalayan Singing Bowls for her work and our enjoyment. The transportation for offsite work with seven bowls and accessories dictated small bowls to be practical.
Hence, we find you. Navigating your site to browse and listen to recording is fun and easy. Knowing that Rain is involved in the bowl selection and authentication is comforting.
Check out and free shipping is fast and the boxes are well packed.
Our first bowl is small and light, but the energy and ease of play is awesome. We had no hesitation on finding a second bowl for our set and purchased again from iSB.
Your work to preserve these antique treasures and re-purpose them to us is appreciated and we thank you."

"Beautiful Bowl With Lovely Sound! Bowl was delivered fast, and was wrapped safely. It took me a few attempts to get the bowl to sing for me....BUT once I got it.......WOW! It sings beautifully, and resonates with the exact chakras it's sounds are linked with. I will certainly purchases more bowls in the future!"
"I love it! The tone is perfect, and the resonance when I strike it lasts for a very long time. I use it every day when I meditate, and just to find some level of calmness when the day becomes too hectic. I am so very glad I made this purchase. Greulat quality, I cod not be happier with my selection."
"I’ve been mesmerized by my beautiful singing bowl. The purchase experience was flawless from the well done website and the excellent communication to the speedy delivery. I’ll most definitely purchase more from this fantastic organization."
"Impressive! This set of singing bowls is such a joy to experience. Being new to singing bowls, I considered getting a single bowl to start out. However, I took the plunge and grabbed a set while available. I am so glad I did! I play them almost every morning to start my day ( getting balanced and tuned, etc). Still very new to all the possibilities connected to using the bowls but I am learning. I do seem to feel more grounded (primary purpose) but also I feel that I am getting things done more easily and with less effort. No earth shattering records being made; just feeling more confident, hopeful, more stamina, and easier making simple decisions. Good beginning, right? Thank you again for making all of this available to those of us who might never know of such treasures. Love and joy,"
"Love my new bowl! This bowl is amazing-- I'm so excited to use it in my healing work! Definitely would buy from iSingingBowls again. Excellent and accurate sound recording on the site and very speedy delivery!"

"This purchase was such a positive experience from beginning to end.
After my first group sound meditation, I knew that I was ready bring some instruments into my home, and Rain comes highly recommended as an expert and dealer of quality singing bowls. He lived up to that, not only by offering amazing hand selected pieces, but also thoughtful guidance for choosing a bowl that would be a wonderful pairing with one I had selected. I ordered them with confidence and excitement.
In a very few days, the two were at my door, and soon their online presence had expanded into a hands-on experience of them that I could not have imagined. The sounds are breathtaking, elevating, and expansive.
When I am ready to add to my collection, I'll be back to iSingingBowls.com"
"Superb Sound! This is an enchanting bowl. It has qualities to its tones that were hinted at in the HD YouTube video, but are much more present in person. I'm very happy with it!"
"Very nice bowl. Customer service was absolutely phenomenal! I now have the perfect bowl for me."
"Beautiful with a long ringing tone. Was given as a gift. The smile on her face after hearing the tone showed me I chose the correct product. Thank you."
