Antique Tibetan Singing Bowls

For your convenience, this category features all antique singing bowls available for sale on our website. As you browse through this collection, you'll find antique Tibetan singing bowls of various styles and sizes.

Antique singing bowls range from rustic to finely crafted. Some are simple, while others boast intricate engravings. You'll encounter antique singing bowls with imperfect geometry, as well as those with nearly perfect form. Original Himalayan singing bowls come in many unique shapes, each reflecting the style of its culture.

The sizes of antique singing bowls range approximately from three to fourteen inches in diameter. They produce a uniquely warm sound, relaxing the body and focusing the mind. Himalayan singing bowls generate a basic (fundamental tone) tone and two to three distinct overtones. The fundamental tone of an antique Tibetan singing bowl can range from very deep in larger vessels to high-pitched in smaller ones.

The interplay between a singing bowl's fundamental tone and overtones determines whether the bowl sounds harmonious or "out-of-tune". However, the essence of an antique Tibetan singing bowl isn't only about its complex chord or the prominence of sonic layers. Each tone also creates a unique pattern of pulsations, lending the singing bowl its magical and enigmatic sound. Although there are subtle differences in their tonal relationships, some of these instruments may sound almost identical.

Five factors determine the sound of an antique singing bowl: its metal alloy composition, molecular tension (which changes due to the age of a singing bowl), bowl geometry, variations in the wall's thickness, and the thickness of the rim.

Furthermore, the rarity of an antique singing bowl significantly enhances its intrinsic value. Over the years, the task of locating a high-quality antique Himalayan singing bowl has become increasingly challenging. The cost of genuine instruments possessing exceptional sonic aesthetics continues to rise annually.

Brass Singing Bowls

Tibetan Brass Singing Bowls

What is the Full Moon brass singing bowl? The original Full Moon brass singing bowls, available on our website, are manufactured in Nepal. They are typically thicker than other modern, handmade Tibetan brass singing bowls. This greater thickness of the metal imparts a brighter quality to the overall sound of a singing bowl. Thin-walled singing bowls are ideal for on-body applications, whereas thicker sound bowls are better suited for sound healing.
Due to the high demand for Full Moon brass singing bowls, the market has been inundated with replicas. The majority of these imitations come from India and often have much lower sound quality.
It's important to note that the original Full Moon brass singing bowls are NOT exclusively manufactured during the brightest nights (when the moon is full). This is a sales myth that has been debunked!
Many modern brass singing bowls feature decorations that cover large portions of the vessel. These decorations are typical signs of new singing bowls. Images of Buddha, White Tara, a mantra, or other symbols (like the Full Moon symbol) may commonly be found on the walls of a newly-made brass singing bowl.
Every few years, new styles and designs are created. Hand engraving is one method craftsmen use for decoration. After a brass singing bowl is hand-pounded, lines or images are etched with a thin knife into the metal to create a permanent mark. This type of decoration is rare, as it requires skilled artists to execute.
Many brass sound healing bowls are embossed with designs. To create a design, a thin layer of metal is applied to the surface. While it may appear that the bowl is made from different metals, it is actually the result of a plating or embossing technique on the surface.

Large Tibetan sound bath singing bowl

Large Singing Bowls

Large Tibetan Singing Bowl

Diameter 9-14 Inch / 23-35.5 cm. 

The typical styles of singing bowls in this category include Jambati, Ultabati, and Manipuri. Usually, large singing bowls, measuring 9-14 inches / 23-35.5 cm in diameter, cover the higher notes of the second octave (G, G#, A, A#, and B / Sol, Sol#, La, La#, and Ti) and can sound as high as F / Fa of the third octave.

Large Tibetan singing bowl produces the deepest, low sounds, often having a grounding effect that can bring listeners to a state of peace almost instantly. Depending on their physical properties, some large singing bowls produce more high-pitched sounds, offering a fuller range of tones.

Low-toned large singing bowl, with slow pulsations, is perfect for private sound healing sessions, meditation, relaxation, and vibroacoustic massages. High-pitched large singing bowl fill the space with a clear sound, making it an excellent instrument for group sound journeys (sound baths) as well as private sound healing work.

The pitch of a singing bowl is determined by its size, the thickness of its metal, and the extra tension created through a shaped edge or rim. Thinner large singing bowl, with relatively consistent wall thickness, produce a low, roaring sound. This type is not as rare as the large Tibetan singing bowl with a shaped lip, which adds a prominent high voice to the low fundamental tone of the instrument.

The large singing bowls in our antique catalog range from 9 to 14 inches in diameter. Modern singing bowls can be as large as 34-36 inches in diameter, and the weight of such a giant Tibetan singing bowl can range from 10 to 30 pounds.

When placing a large singing bowl on a hard surface, use a cushion or a piece of soft cloth to protect it. A rubberized shelf liner can also be used between the cushion and the bowl to prevent it from sliding around.

Locating a high-quality, large Tibetan singing bowl has become a challenging endeavor, primarily because many bowls of this size are often found damaged.

medium Tibetan sound singing bowl

Medium Singing Bowls

Medium Tibetan Singing Bowls

Diameter 6-9 Inch / 15-23 cm 

The typical styles of medium singing bowls in this category include Thadobati, Manipuri, Mani, Pedestal sound bowls, and Shiva Lingam sound bowls. Generally, medium-sized singing bowls, which are 6-9 inches / 15-23 cm in diameter, cover the higher notes of the third octave (G, G#, A, A#, and B / Sol, Sol#, La, La#, and Ti) and may sound as high as F / Fa of the fourth octave. The fundamental tone of a medium singing bowl also depends on the thickness of its wall.

Tibetan medium singing bowls that range from 6 to 9 inches in diameter are the most popular instruments in sound healing practices. Being easier to transport than large singing bowls and lighter in weight, medium sized singing bowls are more comfortable to play.

You may also find a medium-sized singing bowl that emits sounds as deep as a large singing bowl, while others produce a high-pitched tone similar to small singing bowls. The pitch of any singing bowl depends not only on its diameter but also on the thickness of the bowl's wall and the presence of a shaped lip. These acoustic properties make medium-sized singing bowls excellent instruments for both private and group sound baths. Furthermore, due to their relatively lightweight, medium-sized singing bowls are ideal for vibroacoustic massage. The vibrations are clearly felt, but the weight of the vessel doesn't feel heavy on the body.

Playing a Tibetan medium singing bowl with a wooden or leather-wrapped mallet around the rim can emphasize one of its overtones. Striking the singing bowl with a soft mallet brings out a more complex tone, blending the fundamental note and overtones. It's important to play the singing bowl around the rim slowly. If your playing stick jumps off the singing bowl's surface, it will produce an unpleasant sound. This effect can be minimized by slowing down and applying more pressure. Please note that some medium singing bowls with extra-thick walls cannot be played around the rim.

Singing Bowls Accessories

Singing bowl mallets and cushions

Everything you need to start playing your singing bowl is listed in this category. Here, you'll find a wide selection of striking mallets and various sticks designed to make your singing bowl resonate effortlessly. These accessories provide an ample starting point for your sound healing practice with Himalayan (Tibetan) sound bowls. Please note that if you purchase one, two, or even ten singing bowls from our website, all necessary mallets for playing them will be included with your order at no extra charge.

A singing bowl can be held in your open palm or fingertips, or placed on a cushion or any other soft surface. Ensure your palm is flat when holding the instrument. It's important to avoid touching the sides of the singing bowl as this can muffle the sound. Only touch the bottom of your sound bowl.

Remember, even though these vessels are made from metal, they are extremely delicate.

Feel free to experiment with different mallets to find one that coaxes the best sound from your singing bowl. Small singing bowls may produce a very quiet sound if the mallet is too large or too soft. In such cases, opt for a smaller, firmer mallet. For large sound bowls, larger and softer mallets work best. A mallet that is too small and firm may not bring out all the tones of a larger bowl.

All singing bowls purchased from our website come with the appropriate size complimentary striking and rubbing mallets.

Singing Bowls For Massage

Zen singing bowls and large antique singing bowls

This category offers a selection of high-quality, handpicked antique and contemporary singing bowls specifically chosen for vibroacoustic therapy and massage. Large singing bowls with relatively thin walls are optimal for producing strong mechanical vibrations that can penetrate the body when the vessel is applied directly to it.

The newly-made large Jambati bowls, also known as Zen singing bowls, are available here at Bells of Bliss for nearly half the price found on other websites. Despite offering more affordable prices, we never compromise on quality. Moreover, we select our sound healing bowls for massage using criteria other sellers might not even consider, such as the rate of pulsations.

Zen singing bowls purchased from other websites can produce fast beats. If a singing bowl's pulsation is faster than the resting heart rate, the long-term application of such a massaging bowl could potentially be harmful to your client.

Typically, a Zen singing bowl or another style of sound massage bowl is applied to the client's lower and upper back, hips, chest, and shoulders. When a large vibrating membrane of a Zen bowl makes direct contact with the body, the resulting vibrations are intense and effectively felt.

Since every cell in the body resonates with the vibrations created by a carefully chosen singing bowl, the effect is deeply relaxing. This treatment can lead to a pleasant feeling of warmth flooding the body, providing the mind with a good reason to relax as well.

Another common method of using large singing bowls and Zen bowls involves placing them around the body while the person lies down. This allows the person to feel vibrations propagated through both the air and the surface they're lying on.

Please note that we provide complimentary mallets with each purchase, enabling you to start using your singing bowl as soon as it arrives at your door.

small Tibetan sing bowl

Small Tibetan Singing Bowls

Small Singing Bowls

3-6 Inch / 7.5- 15 cm in diameter

This category features typical styles of Himalayan (Tibetan) small singing bowls such as Thadobati, Thadobati Cups, Manipuri, Mani, Pedestal singing bowls, and Lingam singing bowls. Typically, small Tibetan singing bowls cover the notes of the fourth and fifth octaves. The fundamental tone of a small singing bowl also depends on the thickness of its wall.

Small singing bowls are easily held in an upward-stretched palm or fingertips. Their lightweight and compact size make them easily transportable, perfect for taking with you on any journey. Small Tibetan singing bowls are commonly used in various spiritual ceremonies, space cleansing rituals, cacao and medicine plant ceremonies, and for enhancing focus.

Small singing bowls typically produce the highest tones. However, some of them are very thin and can produce deeper tones. Playing a small Tibetan singing bowl around the rim can be challenging. The small diameter and thick wall of these vessels create more tension in their structure, making some less responsive to pressure from a rubbing mallet. If you have difficulty playing the rim of your small singing bowl with a leather-wrapped mallet, use the wooden part of the playing stick.

Some small singing bowls are incredibly lightweight and, due to their small bottom area, lack stability when placed on a flat surface. To solve this, place a rubber kitchen shelf liner underneath the singing bowl for increased stability. The shimmering effect of a group of small Tibetan singing bowls is captivating. These instruments can be assembled into a beautiful set and harmoniously played alongside commonly used sound healing instruments like Koshi chimes, swinging chimes, tingshas, and tubular bells.

A Himalayan (Tibetan) sound bowl is a metallic vessel that resonates with an enchanting sound. These 'bells' can be found across various parts of Asia.

When struck, singing bowls produce a clear, ringing sound. You can strike them lightly with a soft, padded mallet or play them by slowly moving a wooden or suede-padded mallet around their rim, creating a continuous 'singing' sound.

Singing bowls possess a captivating history, representing an age-old Bronze Age tradition of craftsmanship carried forward over thousands of years. However, much misinformation has been propagated about singing bowls, both in books and online. It can be challenging for consumers to discern fact from fiction due to the myriad myths and inaccuracies about the metallic composition, historical context, traditional uses, and supposed healing powers of singing bowls (like chakra healing). Many of these false narratives are designed to inflate their prices. Given the wide variation in quality and the proliferation of counterfeit items, it's crucial for potential buyers to exercise caution and become educated.

Singing bowls come in various appearances, from rustic to finely crafted. Some are simple in design, while others boast intricate engravings. Their geometric precision can also vary - some have an almost perfect form, while others embrace their charming imperfections.
