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 the included Tibetan-wool padded mallet. This blends into the second sound which is the same singing bowl played around the outside rim with a leather mallet, then around the rim with the wood side of the mallet, and last the struck tone again. For critical listening please use earphones.
Singing Bowl type: "Thadobati"
One of the major categories of Tibetan and Himalayan singing bowls. Thadobatis have a classic shape and form, and range from under 4 inches up to 8 plus inches in diameter. They have a flat bottom, rounded at the bottom edges where they meet the side wall, and inward curving side walls. They come in both thick and thin wall versions, with the thicker ones producing higher octaves, and thinner ones producing deeper lower tones. They can be found in all musical notes, with tones generally ranging from the 3rd to 4th octaves. They are easily held in the hand for playing and easy to place on the body when using for healing work.

"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.
