A hidden gem

Knowing not much at all about these bowls, I was becoming frustrated with my inability to (easily) make it ring. One day I experimented with tapping it using the M008 felted mallet and discovered this is how the bowl likes to sing! Starting off with light vertical taps just below the rim gave me a rich, gong like ringing. Very pleasing to the ears, and the vibrations travelled right through me. As I listened to the oscillations of sound, I timed my taps to them to continue hitting the low resonance spot and the deep sound intensified, purified, and then set the voice free. What a sweet sound this bowl has. It is a hidden treasure. I do notice a slight difference in tone between when I am using the sueded, or the felted, striker.
