Antique singing bowls can look rustic or finely crafted. Some bowls are simple, while others are intricately engraved. Some of the authentic singing bowls have imperfect geometry while others have a nearly perfect form. There are many unique shapes available for the original singing bowls and each culture has its own style.
Antique singing bowls range in size from approximately three inches to fourteen inches in diameter. 
Singing bowls produce a uniquely warm sound that has the ability to relax the body as well as focus the mind. Himalayan singing bowls make a basic tone (fundamental tone) and two to three distinct overtones. 
The fundamental tone can vary from very deep - in the large singing bowls, to high-pitched in small ones.
The interaction of the fundamental tone and overtones of a singing bowl will determine whether the bowl sounds harmonious or "out-of-tune."
A singing bowl's essence isn't only about its complex chord and the prominence of the sonic layers. Each tone is also creating a unique pattern of pulsations that makes the singing bowl sound even more magical and enigmatic. Although there are subtle differences in their tonal relationships, some bowls sound almost identical.
The sound of a singing bowl is determined by five factors: its metal alloy composition, molecular tension (changes due to the age of a singing bowl), bowl geometry, variations in the thickness of the wall, and the thickness of the rim.

Large Tibetan sound bath singing bowl

Large Antique Singing Bowls

Healing bowls

Diameter 9-14 Inch / 23-35.5 cm . 

The typical styles of singing bowls in this category are, Jambati, Ultabati. and Manipuri.
Usually, large singing bowls 9-14 Inch / 23-35.5 cm in diameter are covering the higher notes of the second octave (G, G#, A, A#, and B / Sol, Sol#, La, La#, and Ti) and may sound as high, as F / Fa of the third octave.  
Large singing bowls produce the deepest low sound that often has an amazing grounding effect and can bring the listener to peace of mind almost instantly. Depending on the physical properties, some of the large singing bowls are more high-pitched and produce a fuller range of tones. 
Large singing bowls with low tones and slow pulsations are the best tools for private sound healing sessions, meditation, relaxation and vibroacoustic massage. Large, high-pitched singing bowls are filling the space with a clear sound and therefore are great instruments for group sound journey sessions (sound baths) as well as private sound healing work.
The pitch will be determined by the size of the bowl, the thickness of the metal, and the extra tension created through a shaped edge (the rim of a singing bowl).
Thinner singing bowls with a relative consistency of the thickness of the wall, produce a low roaring sound. They are not as rare as bowls with a shaped lip which adds a prominent high voice to the low fundamental tone of the bowl.
Large singing bowls in our catalog of antiques are approximately 9 to 14 inches in diameter. Modern metal singing bowls can be made up to 34-36 inches in diameter. The weight of such a giant singing bowl can reach anywhere between 10 to 30 pounds.  
When placing a singing bowl on a hard surface, use a cushion or piece of a soft cloth. A rubberized shelf liner can be used between the cushion and your bowl to prevent it from sliding around.
Please visit our blog and consider taking our Free Singing Bowls Course to learn more about the use of large singing bowls.

Medium Antique Singing Bowls

Best selling singing bowls

Diameter 6-9 Inch / 15-23 cm 

The typical styles of singing bowls in this category are, Thadobati, Manipuri, Mani, Pedestal sound bowls, and Shiva Lingam sound bowls. Usually, medium size singing bowls 6-9 inch / 15- 23 cm in diameter are covering 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. 
Singing bowls that range from 6 to 9 inches in diameter are the most popular instruments in sound healing practice. Medium size singing bowls are easier to transport than large singing bowls. Due to their lightweight, it's more comfortable to play them. 
Some of the medium bowls sound deep as large singing bowls, some emit a high-pitched tone like small singing bowls. The pitch of any singing bowl depends not only on its diameter but the thickness of the bowl's wall and the presence of a shaped lip. The acoustic properties of medium size sound bowls are making them great instruments for private and group sound baths. Also, due to their relatively lightweight, medium size singing bowls are good for vibroacoustic massage. The vibrations are clearly felt but the weight of a singing bowl does not feel heavy on a body. 
Playing a singing bowl with a wooden or leather wrapped mallet around the rim can emphasize one of its overtones. Striking the bowl with a soft mallet brings out a more complex tone with a blend of the fundamental and overtones. Playing a singing bowl around the rim should be done slowly. If your playing stick jumps off the singing bowl's surface, it will produce an unpleasant sound. This effect can be countered by slowing down and applying more pressure. Some singing bowls with extra-thick walls cannot be played around the rim.
Full moon  modern sound singing bowl

Modern Singing Bowls

Full moon Tibetan singing bowls

What are Full Moon singing bowls? The original Full Moon singing bowls (sold on our website) are being manufactured in Nepal. They are usually thicker than other modern hand-made singing bowls. The greater thickness of metal adds brightness to the overall sound of a singing bowl. Thin-walled singing bowls are best for on-body applications, while thick singing bowls are better for sound healing. 
Due to the high demand for the Full Moon singing bowls, the market got flooded with the Full Moon singing bowls replicas. Most of the fake Full Moon singing bowls are coming from India with much lower sound quality. 
For your information: the original Full Moon singing bowls are NOT being manufactured during the brightest night only (when the moon is full). It is a salesman’s myth and it is confirmed!
Some modern singing bowls have decorations that cover large portions of the bowl. These decorations are typical signs of the new singing bowls. An image of Buddha, White Tara, a  mantra, or other symbols (like the Full Moon symbol)  may be commonly found on the new singing bowls.
New made singing bowls are decorated by the implementation of a variety of techniques. Every few years, new styles and designs are created. Hand engraving is one way the craftsmen use for some decoration. After a singing bowl is hand-pounded, the lines or images are cut with a thin knife into the metal to create a permanent mark.
This type of decoration is rare as it requires skilled artists to complete it. Many singing bowls made of brass are embossed with designs. To create a design, a thin layer of metal is applied to the surface. Although it looks like the bowl is made from different metals, it is a plating or embossing technique on the surface.

Rare Antique Singing Bowls

Museum Quality Authentic Singing Bowls

The sound bowls offered in this category were specially selected for you based on rare styles and extremely rare sound characteristics.
Same as the singing bowls from other categories, they were hand-picked from thousands of others.  
The singing bowls in this collection are the finest of the best, the most valuable examples of their kind. Rare authentic antique Himalayan singing bowls presented on our website could vary in size, type, and age of a bowl. However, they all have a unique combination of exceptional craftsmanship, extraordinary tonality, and an extraordinary state of preservation.
Mani and Shiva Lingam singing bowl types command a higher premium due to their rarity and antiquity, while other singing bowl types, such as Jambati and Thadobati may get more expensive because of their enormous size, weight, rare note, and exceptional sonic characteristics. Larger examples of any type of singing bowl will usually cost more. A singing bowl may have a unique note, a concert pitch, a low octave, a long sustain, or an unusually high octave. This can make it more valuable and increase its status. The unique geometrical shape of a singing bowl, inscriptions, and unusual marking patterns will add value as well.
If you are considering purchasing antique premium or superior quality singing bowls, please keep in mind that it is unlikely that they will be in the same condition as new singing bowls. However, even though the age of the singing bowls presented in this collection is 100 - 300 years old, their condition is far better than the average.
We are constantly searching for extraordinary and stunning specimen singing bowls in Nepal and India to add to the premium quality collection featured on our website. We consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate to have access to these rare and valuable singing bowls. And we will pay whatever price it takes!

Singing Bowls Accessories

Singing bowl mallets and cushions

Everything you need to start playing your singing bowl is listed in this category. Here, you can find a variety of singing bowl striking mallets and all kinds of mallets and sticks to play your singing bowl and make it sing effortlessly. These accessories are more than enough to start your sound healing practice with Himalayan (Tibetan) singing bowls. Please note, that if you are purchasing a singing bowl or two, or ten from our website, all needed mallets for playing singing bowls will be complementarily attached to your order.
You can hold a bowl in your open palm or fingertips or place it on a cushion, or any other soft surface. Your palm should be flat when holding a bowl.
Avoid touching the sides of the singing bowl, as this can cause the sound to become muffled. Only touch the bottom of your singing bowl.
Please remember that even though singing bowls are made from metal, they are extremely fragile.
You can experiment with different mallets to find one that produces the best sound with your singing bowl. 
Small singing bowls will sound very quiet if the mallet is too large or too soft. Therefore, choose a smaller impact area with some firm material. Larger and softer singing bowl mallets are better to be used with the large bowls. A mallet that has a very small impact surface and is too firm will not produce all the tones of a larger bowl.
All singing bowls on our website come with the correct size complimentary striking and rubbing mallets.

Singing Bowls For Massage

Zen singing bowls and large antique singing bowls

In this category, we offer you high-quality handpicked antique and contemporary singing bowls for vibroacoustic therapy and massage. Large singing bowls with a  relatively thin wall are best to create strong mechanical vibrations passing into the body, once the bowl is applied directly to it.  
The newmade large Jambati bowls are also known as  Zen singing bowls. They are being sold on other websites for almost double the price that we offer you here at Bells of Bliss. Although we offer you a lower price, we never compromise the quality! More than that, we select our singing bowls for massage following the criteria that other sellers don’t even consider (rate of pulsations). 
Zen singing bowls that you may purchase on other websites can produce fast beats. If the beat (pulsation) of a singing bowl is faster than the rate of a heart at its’ rest, the application of such a massaging bowl can be harmful in the long term for your client. 
Typically, massaging singing bowls are applied on the lower and upper back, hips, chest, and shoulders of the client. When a large vibrating membrane of a singing bowl is in direct contact with the body, the sensation of the vibrations is intense and effective.
As every cell in the body resonates with the vibrations created by a carefully chosen singing bowl, the effect is deeply relaxing. Such a treatment can manifest as a pleasant feeling of warmth flooding the body. The mind of the treated person has a good reason to relax as well. 
Another common way of using large singing bowls is by spreading them around the body (laying down position). This way, the treated person would feel the vibrations propagated through the air and the surface he or she is laying on. 
Please note, that we provide you with the complimentary mallets you need in order to start using your singing bowl as soon as it arrives at your door.

Small Antique Himalayan Singing Bowls

Small sound bowls

3-6 Inch / 7.5- 15 cm in diameter

The typical styles of Himalayan (Tibetan) singing bowls in this category are, Thadobati, Thadobat Cups, Manipuri, Mani, Pedestal sound bowls, and Shiva Lingam singing bowls. Usually, small singing bowls 3-6 inch / 7.5- 15 cm in diameter are covering the notes of the fourth and the fifth octaves. The fundamental tone of a mini singing bowl also depends on the thickness of its wall.
Small-sized singing bowls are easily held on a palm, stretched upward fingertips, or placed on the body for sound healing (vibroacoustic therapy) applications. Also, due to their lightweight and small size they can be easily transported and taken with you on any travel. Small singing bowls are commonly used as tools for all kinds of spiritual ceremonies, space cleansing, cacao and medicine plants ceremonies and focus enhancement. 
Typically, among all sizes of sound bowls, small singing bowls are producing the highest tones. Some small singing bowls, however, are very thin and can produce deeper tones.
It can be difficult to play a small singing bowl around the rim. The small diameter of a bowl and thick wall are two critical factors that create more tension in the structure of a singing bowl. As a result, some small bowls are less responsive to pressure from the rubbing mallet. If you have difficulty playing the rim of your small-sized singing bowl with the leather-wrapped mallet, try using the wooden part of the playing stick. In some cases, the harder the wood is, the better your bowl will respond. 
Some tiny singing bowls are incredibly lightweight. Also, due to the small bottom area, they do not have enough grip when placed on a flat surface. Use a rubber kitchen shelf liner under the small singing bowl to make it more stable.
The shimmering effect of a group of small singing bowls won't leave you indifferent. Small singing bowls can be assembled in a beautiful set and can be played with commonly used in sound healing Koshi chimes, swinging chimes, tingshas, and tubular bells.
