What's So Special About Our Handmade Singing Bowls?
Shopping today is a near never-ending cycle of planned obsolescence. Your tech gadgets struggle to last more than a few years before falling apart or some new hot item arrives. Your clothes get worn out and frayed from heavy use or (worse) are often wasted from little or no use. Your car, the style of your home, your shoes, and on and on—nearly every big purchase is designed to not last.
It’s a rare find that lasts through years of usage with no decrease in quality, performance or usefulness.
It’s an even rarer find that lasts for centuries and gets better with age. One whose technology was perfected some half a millennium earlier through the efforts of master craftsmen and which cannot be made obsolete by some new invention.
One that gives endlessly, needing nothing in return. One that transcends stress, that uplifts, that invites peace into your day. One whose vibrations course through you, providing instant relaxation with just a tap.
One that can be passed down from generation to generation, its sound slowly becoming even sweeter and warmer as it ages into a world-class antique.
One that makes for a truly cherished gift you can give to yourself or a loved one, a reminder of your love.
Now that is a distinct departure from your normal shopping experience.
A team of up to seven artisans in Nepal comes together to craft each of our singing bowls by hand in the same tradition used centuries ago. Shaping a disc of specially made bell metal bronze into these magical pieces takes skill, precision, years of experience, and time.
Each handmade product is truly one-of-a-kind. No pattern of hammer strikes is exactly like another when crafting the bronze disc. The bowls have unique sizes, shapes, curvatures, thicknesses, smoothnesses, sounds and vibrations.
The bowls can be buffed to a smooth shine, turning into our Golden Bronze line that gets rosier with time. The can be stained to form more classic looking singing bowls—our Bronze Matte line. Or they can be sent out to trained thangka painters to have hand drawn engravings added to every inch of them. Those are our Tibetan Engraved bowls, our most popular option. Finally, they can be crafted into one of our etched or non-etched Lingam bowls, the most exquisite handmade singing bowls on the planet.
Here's where Himalayan Bowls goes above and beyond to ensure the best singing bowl experience: rather than hearing just a sample recording and getting sent an unknown bowl from Nepal that can take 2-3 weeks—as many sellers do—we personally record and photograph the bowls on the site. You get to see and hear the uniqueness of every bowl.
That’s right—we’ve already shipped each bowl to the US, recorded and photographed them individually and have them stored and ready to ship fast. Your bowl, once bought, is gone from the site forever. It's fully unique to you.
We make sure you have no unwelcome surprises. You’ll see pictures of the exact bowl that’s arriving and hear an unedited recording of that particular bowl’s sound when struck. All you have to do is listen to the sound clips and look at the pictures to see which bowl speaks (or sings) to you.
We provide the precise size and match the bowl’s tone to the closest note. There’s no better place to build a set of harmonious singing bowls that create beautiful music for your ears, with no experience required. Imagine trying to build a set when you don’t even know what your bowl—which won’t arrive for 2-3 weeks—will sound like or what note it is.
Our founder and leading singing bowl expert Joseph Feinstein has built a record-breaking set of 63 harmonious singing bowls spanning 8 octaves. While a 63 bowl set might be a bit ambitious for you, we’ve built Himalayan Bowls around helping you find the best singing bowls for your needs, whether that’s 1, 3, 5, or 7+ treasures unique to you.

A favorite quote of mine that I’ve printed on custom bookmarks says, “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
We take the message to heart and have been sharing that happiness for over 21 years now with thousands of delighted customers and a 4.9/5 lifetime rating.
Handmade singing bowls from Himalayan Bowls are the investment that never stops paying back.
