I was amazed at the loveliness and depth of sound from this bowl given that it is not very expensive. After purchasing I realized I shouldn't have bought it. I suddenly needed to give it to a friend taking a meditation class. He didn't know what it was! But when I took the mallet and tapped it he leapt up with joy and hugged me. He works with men in recovery and I hope they will like it too.

Of course the paint and the plating leaves the resonance somewhat muted. However the mantra, images and gold plate band are on it for a reason. My overall experience using it is far from complete, but I am certainly glad I have it. Singing bowls are not the only musical experience I have had, and they all get better with practice.
Singing medicine bowl was unstable
This singing bowl was exactly what I have wanted for my first singing bowl. Just the right size. Fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. I am completely satisfied with this purchase. The vibrations from this bowl are powerful and mystical sounding. I am using it daily and as occasions arise.
Beautiful design for this smaller Medicine Buddha Singing Bowl. For its size it gives out a nice sound and ringing sensation. Lovely inner image. Good tone.
