The singing bowls and singing bowl sets you’ll find in our catalog have made their way from all over the Himalayas. These instruments survived centuries, passing from one area to another, changing owners along the way. By looking at the image and listening to the sound sample of any bowl, you become a part of the story.
Each singing bowl presented on our website has gone through a comprehensive selection process and was chosen from hundreds of other instruments. The one and only criteria that we deliberately follow is the quality of sound.
We care about you understanding the uniqueness of Himalayan singing bowls and influence of sound on mental, emotional and physical states. To expand your knowledge in the field of sound wellness (sound healing), please visit our "Sound Healing Blog"

If you start hearing a rattling sound, slow down and apply more pressure. The mallet loosely vibrating against the metal (jumping on-and-off) causes that rattling sound. It takes a little pressure to maintain even friction with the metal as it vibrates back and forth. The rattle is usually heard in the same area when playing around the rim of the singing bowl. It happens because the pressure in that area is a little loose. The vibration can not be built up to a constant (steady) intensity if the singing bowl is rumbling. Listen to the sound rise slowly. Keep the pressure constant and the sound will build up to a loud tone in a matter of seconds.
In this article, we will talk about the uniqueness of Himalayan Singing Bowls (also known as Tibetan Singing Bowls and Sound Healing Bowls). We will learn what makes the sound of singing bowls so unique and why listening to these instruments can be healing.
This article presents interesting facts about the imprint of harmony within the timbre. We will also look deeper into the acoustic phenomenon such as dissonance, and brainwave entrainment.Read more
A common misconception is that Himalayan singing bowls are made from a special "sacred seven metal" alloy.
This is a false myth that has been perpetuated over the internet. Many people believe the seven metal myths. However, there is no truth to it. Singing bowls were never made from seven metals. In testing hundreds of bowls, we have never found the mythical seven metals. We have found only bell metal bronze or the cheap brass alternative.
There are many "authorities" in sound healing community and some of them are misleading the subject by spreading unreliable teachings. I know that some of these teachers were misled themselves and they strongly believe that there is nothing wrong with the knowledge they teach. They have the best intentions, projecting so much love and care, but yet, if you choose to blindly follow the path they offer, will you discover the truth?
Unfortunately, there are also fake gurus and I will allow myself to say BE AWARE OF THE SPIRITUAL FRAUD!
One of the most important aspects to understand, when working in the field of sound healing or just using sound for self benefits is; what is resonance. People talk about the healing vibrations and healing frequencies. There are many claims made in the sound wellness community about the specific sound frequencies that kill cancer cells and frequencies that heal and repair DNA. There are claims about 432Hz creating the resonance of healing of the planet Earth... Claims about 528Hz is a frequency of love that creates resonance of DNA and therefore, is a DNA repairing frequency...
The Jambati (rounded bottom) Himalayan singing bowl is one of the most common types of singing bowls.
This type of antique bowl usually appears to vary between 8.5” – 14” in diameter. The height could vary between 3” – 7”.
Jambati singing bowls can be made with a thick lip (rim) or with no significant difference between the thickness of the wall and the edge.
When I came back home, I found new qualities in my instruments. After meeting the monk, I was inspired to become an even better listener to my clients and most importantly, to myself and the life around!
I now listen to my body and soul more carefully. I listen to the universe. I am focused on listening, thanks to that short, yet profound meeting with the monk.
Himalayan singing bowls brought so many profound lessons into my life, so many beautiful people, new
If you think that Himalayan singing bowls (also known as Tibetan singing bowls) are taking over the niche of yoga and meditation practice – you are mistaken. It's amazing to observe how much attention the sound bowls get these days. A few years ago a dentist asked me to help finding him a good quality singing bowl for his office. One of my students is a practicing nurse and doula. She uses a few singing bowls to help her patients relax and overcome pain. Another student of mine is Theta healing practitioner, using singing bowls in every session with her clients. I also have students that lead sacred plant
Singing bowls could be brought to hospitals and rehabilitation centers. For more than four years now I've been bringing sound therapy to a nursing home and rehabilitation center in Manhattan. Although I introduced myself as a musician – and that's how I was hired – the management is calling my program “sound healing”. Most likely I would not have been hired if I called myself a sound healer. My agenda was to bring the art of conscious listening and meditation to the elders. I knew, however, that the sound healing modality had no support or even recognition
A vibration that recurring at regular intervals has its own "frequency". So what is frequency? Frequency indicates how FREQUENT the cycle of motion is happening within a fixed unit of time. Vibration with no periodic activity has no frequency.
In what units is frequency measured?
The measuring units of frequency are Hertz (Hz). One Hertz equals one full cycle per second. For example, when a honey bee makes one full motion of its wings in one second, the frequency of this movement is 1Hz.
It's very common to see sound healing practitioners using three singing bowls set placed around the head area. Left, right and crown. This is called A HEADSET.
Does it have something to do with the Third Eye Chakra and the Crown Chakra? The answer is - maybe, but there is something else, that is more obvious than the speculative assumptions that it is somewhat good for chakras. Once the set of three singing bowls is assembled correctly, it can be used for
The late '80s brought to the New Age community a very interesting instrument with angelic tone - crystal singing bowl.
Crystal singing bowls are called "Quartz Crucibles" and they originated in the solar industry.
The crystal bowls are very popular these days and are a really good sounding instrument. Not many sound practitioners know how these bowls are being manufactured.
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.
Sounds can be molded into music. Music is an art of ordering tones in combination and relationship to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. Much as one could consider music as an art, it is also a discipline of science. Any harmony that we can recognize in music has a mathematical foundation.
In music, notes are the building blocks, and each note has an assigned frequency (depending on the system of reference). There is a series of eight notes, each having its own name (except for the eighth note), creating an "octave".
One of the most important criteria in explaining the sound characteristics of a Himalayan singing bowl is the speed of its pulsations (its modulations, or “beats”).
The key point is that each Himalayan singing bowl produces several “wavy” fluctuating tones at the same time and that each tone within that complex creates — and is affected by — every other modulation!
Let's call these modulations “beats,” or "the pulse of the bowl". Several pulsating layers of a different pitch
