Forms of singing bowls might have been used for more than 5000 years in the area that is today known as India.
The Buddha (about 2500 years ago) is said to have given a set of singing bowls to a group of monks. The bowls were said to have been used to keep the harmony of the group and to focus the monks’ minds during meditation.
The use of singing bowls spread from Asia to Europe in the 1800s, where they were used by spiritual and healing practitioners. In the early 1900s, singing bowls began to be used in Western music, and today they are used in a variety of genres, from classical to new age.
Singing bowls are made of a variety of materials, including metal, glass, and crystal. They are typically made in two halves and are then joined together to form a complete bowl. The bowls are then tuned to a specific frequency, which determines the note that the bowl will sing.
Singing bowls are played by striking the outside of the bowl with a mallet. This creates a vibration that travels through the bowl and causes it to sing. The sound of a singing bowl can be meditative and calming, and it can also be used to focus the mind and to promote healing.
Our singing bowls are being manually tested for their tone accuracy before shipment and every singe one of them is a handcrafted masterpiece. We hope you enjoy them.
