This Himalayan singing bowl set was hand picked and matched to relative pitch, ensuring that harmonies are balanced between each bowl in this set. Why is relative pitch important? Playing two bowls together that are not in tune with each other will sound out of tune, not balanced. Sets that are in relative pitch create perfect harmonies. We test every bowl before shipping out to be sure it plays and sounds beautiful.
Each bowl comes with a rubber mat and a mallet. Handmade Nepal cotton buckwheat pads for displaying your bowls and for holding them when singing are available for purchase.
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 Amil. Amil and his wife immigrated to Canada and set up a shop that sells products from their home country. Amil's brother, who still lives in Nepal, hand selects our bowls and sends them to Amil. On our first visit to Amil's store we only purchased a few of his singing bowls because most didn't meet our high standards. Once Amil 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.
