BOLDER Sounds releases Tibetian Singing Bowls
The bowls were struck by a number of items for a wide selection of tone colors. Also included are a few bonus Tingsha Bell samples. The Singing Bowls were “played” hit and also sustained. The sustained samples are what people refer to as “singing” bowls. This sound is created by running the puja stick along the rim of the bowl, similar to the way you can run a wet finger along the edge of a crystal glass and make it “sing”.
