I really, really love this bowl. When struck, the tone is very warm, clear and sustained. I especially enjoy the natural patina, as it inspires more humility in practice. Probably not a fantastic bowl for singing, due to the finish, but that should be expected.
I ordered the large version of the Fire Bowl and I was very impressed when I unboxed it today. It is a truly unique and beautiful bowl. The sound is amazing - great tone and sustain. The one I received rings at a F note when struck. It is a bit darker in patina than the ones pictured on the website. Mine is more like a well aged penny in color with hints of rose. No complaints here! This is my second bowl from Dharma Shop and will not be my last (the other being the Masterpiece bowl). In the included picture is the Fire Bowl on the left and Masterpiece bowl on the right. Thanks Dharma Shop!
This bowl was purchased for my wife, for use leading meditation classes. It’s size is compact enough for the office, but the tone is still rich and resonant. The bowl’s patina is beautiful and unique.
Purchased the fire bowl for my nephew for Christmas and he loved it!!!!!!! He is practicing making it sing. His father saw it and now also wants one. Looks like that may happen.
The overall experience was wonderful. The bowl is amazing and I will be coming back for more. Looking at Moon Bowls to add to my collection
