C#3, being such a low tone, it is most ideal in the 18" or 20" size. However, It is very difficult for us to find perfect pitch bowls that are 18" and larger. We were able to locate some perfect pitch 16" C#3 bowls but we want you to be aware that this bowl has a thin wall which makes it vibrate and come to life very quickly. That is both a good and a not so good thing. After circling the bowl with your mallet about 3 or 4 times it will start shaking too much and want to be left alone, to sing it's song without any help. This is great for if you want to get it singing and then leave it on it's own to sing it's song or to sing a beautiful harmony with another bowl. If you are looking for a 16" bowl to be in constant touch, playing along the rim for the duration of a 5 - 10 minute meditation, I suggest you start with E3 or higher in pitch.
This crystal singing bowl is perfect pitch, ensuring that harmonies are balanced when playing more than one bowl or playing with other instruments. Why is perfect pitch important? Playing two bowls together that are not perfect pitch can sound nice and ethereal, but not balanced and grounded. We test every bowl before shipping out to be sure it plays and sounds beautiful.
Each bowl comes with a rubber O-ring. You will need to purchase a mallet if you do not already own one.
If you are overwhelmed with trying to pick a crystal singing bowl, just give us a call. We would be happy to help you out.

Mallets & Wands
If you do not have a mallet for your crystal singing bowl, you will need to_purchase oneWhile the suede_mallet is the cheapest, very few people choose one because it makes a noisy swishing sound. Most people upgrade to one of our silicone wands or rubber ball mallets. Watch this video demonstrating the different mallets available.
If you are on a tight budget, and need to decide between buying a padded bag for your crystal singing bowl or buying another instrument, we suggest that you opt for the other instrument. While we would love to sell you everything in the store, rest assured, your crystal singing bowl can be stored and travel safely in the protective molded foam insert and box that we ship it in. However, padded bags add convenience as they are easier to unpack, they take up less space and they look much more professional. Padded bags are great for those of you who plan to transport your bowls to different venues. You can stack three bowls nesting in one bag or box, providing that there is a 2" gap in size between the bowls. We provide bubble wrap to protect your bowls when they are nested.
We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase.

Care For My Crystal Singing Bowls
Crystal singing bowls are very easy to care for. When they are dirty, use a toothbrush, soap and water to gently scrub your bowl clean. For best appearance, air dry your bowl (a towel will leave lint).
