Some reviews have complained about the size of the bowl. It's 3.5" wide at the lip and about 4" wide at its widest point (about 2/3rds of the way down the bowl). It sits well within the palm of your hand.
The only thing that detracted from the aesthetic appearance of the bowl was the mallet. It has a distinctly cheap look with an uneven cut. It's not immediately obvious, especially when resting inside the bowl, but I'm considering buying a higher quality mallet to go with the bowl.
I was anxious about how it would play. I read that cheap bowls can have a high tinny sound and some poorly-made bowls don't sing at all. Turns out that this bowl plays a full, pure, vibrating mid-range tone and it is a joy to listen to. It's almost effortless to make it sing - I've never played a singing bowl before, but it took me less than a minute to figure out how to make it sing. It seems you can adjust the volume and the vibrato speed by circling faster/slower or with more/less pressure, though I'm still experimenting with this. You can play it held on your hand or resting upon the felt ring. Alternately, strike it with the mallet to get one long note that lasts 10-20 seconds.
The primary tone of my bowl is about 619Hz (~D#5) - this is the tone that comes out when I circle it. There's also an overtone of 1703Hz (~G#6) which rings out cleanly when I strike the side. If you strike the top half of the bowl with a quick, glancing tap, you can isolate the overtone. There's another overtone of 3172Hz (G7) which I can very occasionally hear when striking, but I haven't been able to isolate it.
Sound-wise, my only concern is that when I circled the bowl, I often heard a soft scraping sound where the wooden mallet rubbed against the bowl. I tried to reduce this by wiping and polishing the bowl with a bit of olive oil. This removed some oxidation from the outside, gave it a brighter sheen, and reduced the scraping, although oiling it also made the bowl a lot harder to get singing. But the bowl recovered in a couple of days and now I'm able to sing it quite easily with minimal scraping.
An excellent purchase overall. I'm pleased with the quality of the bowl, especially considering its very reasonable price. It now sits on my shelf where I will often ring it as I walk past.
It is 4" in diameter and is also beautiful. It is shaped from thick solid brass, has a precise etched ring near the rim and perfectly pounded indentations in the shape of concentrical circles; looks a little bit like a lotus flower.
The wood striker is nicely weighted, smoothly sanded and brings out the best of the sound of the bowl either with a firm strike or running it around the rim to achieve the beautiful ringing sound.
I like the option of holding it in the palm of my hand or to sit it upon the accompanied cushioned ring. The ring was a bit warped, but I just wet it a little bit, reshaped and let it dry; not a problem.
Love this bowl.
Now it comes with a little note on a card with a friendly greeting and a how to use it link to download, but I found the website address to be nonexistent or the address not given correctly. Numerous hits came up with none of them being the actual Ohm Store selling this bowl and offering any download, and I was a little frustrated with that. But I didn't panic and start thinking that I've just been gypped, and Googled how play a singing bowl to read something about holding and playing it. Which turned out out well. And so I suggest not bothering with the note. Don't aggravate yourself with that, on what will appear to be a wild goose chase. I hope that the Ohm Store will get around to correcting this feature.
So now that I've obtained a grasp on how to hold and play it, I still found it awkward to hold and play. The only sound I could get from it was by striking it on the side. So I sat the bowl down on a bed table in front of me, and was able to play it that way. I could actually hear it singing with the striker stick circling the edge. And this had me convinced for awhile that the bowl is made too small to use in your hand. And I then realized that that way was a problem too, as the bowl was sliding around on the table. Which is what kept using it in my hand in my intention. So for day one's practice, I played it little in the only way that I could, on a table, and called it a day. And I took a couple of shots at it later on in the night on the table. For a total of 3 tries on day one.
Now on day two, amazingly, I found that I was able to play it in my hand. Not well, but playing it. Now what happened? What was the difference between today and yesterday? The difference was acquaintance. I was a total stranger to the bowl yesterday and more acquainted with it today. So I found that you have to become attuned to the world of sacred sound. The effort you made on the first day isn't forgotten by the other side your connecting to. Okay, now on day two I'm playing it my hand, and it still felt awkward. And today, like yesterday, I put in a total of 3 tries and called it a day.
Okay, now on day three, I decided to use the ring with the bowl in my hand, with my hand opened, fingers not touching the bowl. To give it some height that may allow me to circle the striker more smoothly. And to my surprise, I was playing that bowl much much better. In fact, the sound got louder and louder as I was circling, like a symphony, and I started feeling a very strong vibration in my hand that flowed up to my forearm. The difference as far as I can see, is acquaintance. Each day brings you closer to the realm of sacred sound. And I found the bowl to feel comfortable in my hand with the ring.
Well that's all I have to tell you for now. I've been using it for 3 days. It's a great bowl, I love it, and are grateful to have it. Kudos to the Ohm Store for kicking out a wonderful work of art at an affordable price, and I highly recommend this bowl to everyone. Especially newbies. All in all, the tiny size of the bowl isn't an issue. It has nothing to do with the function and quality of the bowl, and if you are new at it, you will experience the same break in period with a larger bowl. In fact, the small size of the bowl makes it perfect to carry with you.
