Wondering what “cents” means? For each musical note there are 100 total cents, 50 below the perfect note and 50 above. Measuring the cents allows much more precision for processionals adding on to existing sets. Anything +/- 10 cents is considered a "pure tone" note.
A singing bowl is not manually “tuned” to a specific musical note. Our craftsmen are men of deep skill, and tradition who make bell-metal bronze singing bowls by hand, in the ancient way.
Bell metal bronze is a specific proportion of copper to tin, known for its resonant properties (77% copper and 23% tin)
The tuning of a bowl is a process of discovery and measurement after the fact – ensuring that your singing bowl is the only one like it that will ever exist.
All of our tuning is based on A4 440hz.
In the sound recording, you will first hear the bowl struck with a red felt mallet, followed by the bowl being played around the rim with a suede wrapped mallet.
Listen with headphones for best experience.
