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 each singing bowls' fundamental tones produced by striking on their upper outside edges with the included medium Professional gong mallet. Then you'll hear each singing bowls' rim tone produced by playing around their upper outside edges with the leather side of the included "Fat-boy" leather mallet. Then you'll hear each singing bowls' rim tone sound produced by playing around their upper outside edges with the wood side of the included Tibetan-wool mallet. This is followed by each singing bowl played again by striking, but this time a bit faster. And lastly, the large Bass1 singing bowl struck again.


High-wall ("Jambati") Singing Bowl:

Called Jambati in the Himalayas, the High-wall type is the largest diameter variety of the Tibetan singing bowls. They are highly prized for their deep basso profundo Om tones. Fundamental tones can range from the second to the third octave. The rim tones can reach into the fifth octave.

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.

"My private practice in alternative medicine uses Himalayan Singing Bowls as a tool for healing. As with any industry, there are differences in the quality of the tools used by practitioners. I ONLY source my singing bowls from Rain Gray. When my clients’ health is on the line I take every possible step to ensure that I’m using the best tools on the planet. Rain Gray makes certain that each set of singing bowls meets the highest possible standard. The singing bowls are my team, and truthfully, I have one of the best teams in the country in no small part due to Rain and his expertise.

I can trust every indicator from the singing bowls because their quality of sound, consistency, resonance, stability, and projection are unequaled in the industry. Do I have exacting standards? Absolutely. My reputation depends on it, and in an industry steeped with skepticism, there’s no room for anything less than perfection. My goal is to leave people and places better than I found them and these singing bowls help me achieve that goal.

Whether you’re shopping for singing bowls for meditation, spiritual growth, or general health and wellness, a singing bowl from will be so much more than you can imagine. You can look forward to a lifetime of harmony, in every sense of the word. Singing bowls are teachers who have the ability to facilitate lasting, positive transformation. Rain Gray has collected the best teachers on the planet."
