8 7/8" Antique Singing Bowl Perfect Pitch D

Sonoran Sound

Regular price $820.00

This is a beautiful large singing bowl. It is 100-150 years old. This style of bowl is often called a Jambati bowl due to its shape, but we also find these referred to as Assam bowls. Assam is a region in India where bowls of this style have been made for centuries.

The sound of this bowl is amazing and recordings do not do it justice. The fundamental frequency is a Perfect Pitch D (146.8 Hz) which is a very rare find for someone looking for a perfect pitch bowl to accompany other instruments or for simple precision.

In the Tibetan bowl system D is used primarily for the Heart Chakra, making this a powerful bowl for working with the body as it can easily be placed over the heart. Due to it's weight it is quite stable. This is one of the best bowls you can get and earns our top rating. 

It comes with the O-ring and mallets pictured.

About Our Bowl Rating System

In the world of Himalayan bowls there are many variations. While all of our bowls are suitable for sound practitioners, we have developed a rating system that grades each bowl based on its sound and construction. The sound structure of bowl is a mix of volume, sustain, harmonic spectrum, and modulation. We also consider such nuances as the age of the bowl and aesthetic appeal. With these factors we rate bowls as follows:
  • 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.
