The bowl I was sent has a wonderful rich tone and great resonance. I looked at a lot of bowls on different sites and I can genuinely say the sound quality of the Tarvati bowl is equal to larger, thicker bowls offered at two or three times the price. I asked for a specific tone, and the team at Dharma Shop went through 50 bowls just to find the best one for me. Amazing. I use the bowl every day. It never fails to restore peace and balance to my meditation space or enrich my practice. Great convenient portable size for travel too. Included with bowl was an attractive, useful, carved wooden striker. Highly recommend a very old Tarvati to anyone looking for a singing bowl.
These very old bowl have a wonderful tone and they ring for quite a while, showing the craftmanship involved in making them.
I have always wanted a singing bowl. But I wanted a real one, not a machine-made bowl. I ordered one of these Tarvati bowls and quickly received a clearly hand-made singing bowl with a great deal of sustain. I am a woodworker by trade and recognize the difference between hand and machine made pieces of work. This is an old hand-crafted singing bowl that came from the other side of the world that is a welcome accessory to my meditation. This is the best singing bowl you’ll ever find with a $120 price tag.
Beautiful sound. A smaller bowl than others I have but a wonderful tone.
The singing bowl has a dark patina as though from age. The sound is pleasant and resonates for a long time. I'm happy with my purchase.
