About Our Bowl Rating System
- Antique - These types of bowls are no longer made and usually are more than 60 years old. Some are several centuries old. The price of these bowls has continued to rise over the years and these bowls can be considered investments. Their sound structure is usually quite impressive, with pronounced audible overtones.
- Master - Master bowls are modern bowls of the best quality and sound. Many of the newer bowls have sound structures on par with the antique bowls and exhibit incredible craftsmanship. Such bowls are usually comparable in price to Antique bowls.
- Practitioner - Practitioner bowls are bowls that we have found provide an outstanding value while also delivering the excellent sound structure necessary for serious sound practitioners. It takes a very skilled ear to tell the difference between a Practitioner bowl and a Master bowl, but there are differences. A trained ear can often hear a richer number of overtones in Master and Antique bowls along with a more balanced spectrum of harmonics.
