Also known as Himalayan bowls, Tibetan Singing Bowls are a type of bell that vibrates and produces a very rich and full tone when played. These bowls have been used by Buddhist monks for a long time in meditation practice. Now a days, they are also used by music therapists, massage therapists, yoga practitioners and all kinds of holistic healers. It is said that the vibrations of a singing bowl harmonize the cells and balance the body’s energy system.
There are two different ways of playing a singing bowl:
Strike: This is the easiest way to play one. Hold the bowl in your non-dominant hand and your mallet in your dominant one. Lightly strike the bowl’s mid-exterior wall with the mallet.
Rimming: Hold the bowl in your non-dominant hand and your mallet in your dominant one. Grip the mallet in the center like you would hold a pencil. Lightly strike the bowl to warm it up and before the sound dissipates, immediately position the mallet vertically near the rim of the bowl and begin circling the rim in a clockwise motion.
Rimming takes a little bit more of patience, but once you get it, it becomes really easy. The most important part is to keep your body relaxed and in a comfortable position.
Each bowl produces a different tone, depending on its size. It also produces a different sound if you strike it or if you rim it.
8cm Singing Bowl: B3 when you strike it, A5 if you rim it.
9.5 Singing Bowl: F3 if you strike it, F5 if you rim it.
12.5 Singing Bowl: D2 if you strike it, A4 if you rim it.
