In this article, I would like to talk about striking the singing bowls. I will make it really concise!
Please don't use the singing bowl as a marching drum! The singing bowl is a very delicate instrument. It's fragile and requires a lot of respect! A good quality bowl will sound as soon as you rest the mallet against its wall. If you want to experience the whole range of overtones, simply use a firmer mallet and gently tap your instrument with it.
