Choosing Your Singing Bowls
To place an order, first select your favorite singing bowls and other items. I record every singing bowl individually so you can choose your favorites. Click the play buttons under each bowl to listen to that exact singing bowl. Listen with headphones to hear the most accurate sound. To choose, simply select your favorites. Accessories are all included free of charge so you do not need to buy anything extra. However, I do recommend my book The Singing Bowl Book if you are interested in learning more about the history, use and manufacture of singing bowls.
Listen to multiple bowls together to make a custom set or use a tuner to get perfectly tuned bowls. Singing bowls are not tuned so they are generally not perfectly tuned. Use a tuner to get the most accurate notes if you need that, or just let your ears listen and choose the tones that you enjoy the most.
About Handmade Singing Bowls
Hand hammered and antique singing bowls are handmade objects. They are made by hammers and heat. They are hammered into shape and then finished by hand. They are not "perfect" by the standards of modern computer controlled manufacturing. Our handmade singing bowls do have minor imperfections. Asymmetrical shapes, hammer marks and other variations in the shape are completely normal. Scratches, spots and even micro-fractures are normal for antiques. New bowls may also have a variety of surface marks made during manufacturing. Such minor surface variations are completely normal and to be expected. We carefully check every bowl for structural issues and of course for the sound. Our bowls are the best but please do expect - and enjoy - their unique handmade quality. They are all beautiful, even with some minor flaws!
