Traditionally used in the Himalayas as an offering of sound which helps to dispel the seemingly endless cravings of desire. Used in the West for meditation, healing work, and as a sound "smudge" to clear negative and attract positive energy.
Each pair is hand-cast in the Himalayas of bell-metal bronze and then hand-tuned, one-to-the-other, for superior sound balance. The Tingsha come in matched pairs, held together by a braided cotton cord.
Easy to play. . . simply hold by the cord and strike one against the other on their edges. Produces clear brilliant tones with long sustain. The richness of the sound and the vibrancy of their natural modulations is amazing!

About the Sound Sample:
IMPORTANT-- Use your EARPHONES to enjoy & experience the true sound of this Tingsha ! (Especially with laptops, tablets, mobile and cellphones as their speakers cannot accurately reproduce the richness and wide dynamic range of a Tingsha's tones.)
You'll hear the sound of the Tingsha struck in the traditional manner, on their edges, one against the other.

Personally hand-selected in the Himalayas by Tibetan musicologist Rain Gray, this pair of Legendary-quality Tingsha are among the finest caliber of new Tibetan Tingsha available in the world. Legendary-quality means that these Tingsha have passed stringent tests for harmonic balance of sound, sound volume and long sustain.
