Himalayan Singing Bowl
Approximately 94 hertz / F#2 +28 cents - 12"
All our our Himalayan singing bowls bowls are guaranteed to play easily. When we shop for our bowls, we hand pick each one, rejecting many beautiful looking bowls because they don't play or sing well.
Different tones can be produced with different mallets. Each bowl comes with a rubber mat and a wooden and suede mallet. If you wish to produce the deep tones, we suggest you purchase a Red Felt Mallet. For softer high tones we suggest the tiny mallet. These are available in the accessories section of the Himalayan Collection.
You can sing your bowl in your hand, on your body or on table. When played on a table you should put your bowl on a rubber ring, rubber mat or one of our handmade Nepal cotton buckwheat pads. Your bowl comes with he rubber mat and the rubber ring. The buckwheat pads are available in the accessories section of the Himalayan Collection
If you are overwhelmed with trying to pick a Himalayan singing bowl, just give us a call. We would be happy to help you out.
Where do we get our bowls?
We were very lucky to connect with a kind gentleman from Nepal named Anil. Anil and his wife immigrated to Canada and set up a shop that sells products from their home country. Anil's brother, who still lives in Nepal, hand selects our bowls and sends them to Anil. On our first visit to Anil's store we only purchased a few of his singing bowls because most didn't meet our high standards. Once Anil knew what we were looking for, he was able to get his brother to go and hand pick the bowls in Nepal and send them to Canada. We then inspected the inventory and hand picked from that selection. This is how we are able to offer you Himalayan bowls that sing easily and how we are able to create so many sets of bowls that are in perfect harmony with each other. We hand select only the notes and frequencies that we need.
How can I tell if this is a good bowl?
There are three kinds of Himalayan singing bowls out there. Cheap bowls, good bowls and excellent but very expensive bowls. We are proud to say we sell the good ones. Here is why.
Cheap bowls: Not sold here! Cheap bowls need to be tapped first to make them sing. That is the only way to get them to sing. Some sellers will say "It is waiting for the person with the right energy".... Nope, it is just a cheap bowl that doesn't like to sing. If you know the right technique to get a metal bowl to sing and the bowl won't sing for you, then it is just a cheap bowl. It is great as a bell, but needs coaxing to sing which can be very frustrating when trying to meditate. Sadly, there are many of these bowls on the market.
Good bowls: That's what we have! Imagine you are about to start a meditation. You pick up your beautiful Himalayan singing bowl and you rub the mallet around the outside and... it sings! It sings a beautiful rich tone with warm overtones that helps guide you into relaxation and meditation. Yup! That is what we sell. We hand pick each of our Himalayan singing bowls, making sure they sing easily and a beautiful sound is created with very little effort. They can have 5-7 overtones. These bowls are priced reasonably for the average person to purchase.
Excellent bowls are very hard to find and are super expensive. We have been told that about only 1-2% of all the Himalayan singing bowls fall into this category. They are super rich in overtones, barely need to be touched to sing, but are very expensive. If you are searching for an expensive, one of a kind bowl, let us know and we will see if we can help you find one.
