Buddha Mandala Singing Bowl Set : Fairtrade: Luxury Inlaid Pattern:
stunning, beautiful singing bowl sets are of the highest quality, each
bowl is highly decorated and has a pattern inlayed in the bottom of the
bowl to compliment the design around the outside.
Complete with a lovely hand made paper box with stick and cushion.
Machine made metal bowls are generally easier to play than traditional hand beaten bowls as they are have a smooth polished finish which allows for a steadier movement, this makes them ideal for people learning.
Hand beaten bowls have more complex and overtone rich range of sounds but there is more of a knack to playing them than with machine made bowls.
HOW TO PLAY: Rest the singing bowl in the palm of
the hand; hold smaller bowls on the fingertips. Hold the striker in the
middle with all fingertips pointing downwards. Gently tap the striker
against the side of the bowl to ‘warm it up’. With an even pressure, rub
the striker clockwise around the outside rim of the bowl. Use a full
arm movement just like stirring a big pan of soup. Try to keep the
striker straight and remember to apply pressure. Let the sound build up
slowly as the singing bowl picks up the vibration.
