7 metal Singing Bowls from Nepal

Singing Bowls are from the magical Himalayas of Nepal, Tibet & India.

They are made from a mixture of metals and when rubbed with a mallet, they produce a complex and beautiful sound full of wonderful harmonics and overtones. These instruments have been used for centuries to produce relaxation and facilitate healing and meditation. Singing bowls come complete with a wooden playing mallet for striking and rubbing to create your own melodies. As all items are hand crafted, sizes, colors and prices may vary according to supply. Instructions and descriptions are included.

Below you will find a variety of Metal Singing Bowls. We hand pick all of our bowls from trusted vendors. Some bowls are old, others have been recently made in the old ways. Hand hammered bowls are more traditional, however casted bowls are popular and less expensive. We include a guide to playing these wonderful instruments and an appropriately sized playing stick with each bowl.  Enjoy!

The singing bowls below are made of multiple metals and either hand-hammered or a combination of lathe and hammering.

We test each bowl to verify high quality sound and ease of playing. Bowls are sold by gram weight at 25-30 cents/gram. A typical Medium size bowl is around 500 grams, has a 6" diameter, a 3" height, and sells for about $150. Bowls with smaller diameters often are thicker and heavier, resulting in the same high quality sound that play in larger, thinner bowls. We offer bowls on the web ranging from 300 grams to 1000+ grams. All singing bowls come with wood striker stick and playing instructions.

7-Metal Singing Bowls from Nepal

We met Suren Shrestha in November, 2007. Suren is from a family of makers of traditional 7 metal singing bowl from Nepal. The bowls offered below are all from Suren's family!

Suren now travels the world using singing bowls during healing workshops and consultations. In November, Suren played a "F" bowl as a part of a healing demonstration. Jill was so moved, she asked if she could buy more F bowls. Since buying the first, more F bowls have arrived one at a time. They are a phenomenal experience to hear. The bowls gently struck with the soft part of the striker, are then moved up and down one's body. A real connection with Truth and Healing

Natural Healing Singing Bowls

Singing Bowls History

The sound resonating from metal singing bowls is pure and very powerful in centering the mind and body. According to tradition, the bowls are made, in ceremony, of seven metals: one metal for each of the planets:

Gold the Sun, Silver the Moon, Mercury for Mercury, Copper for Venus, Iron for Mars, Tin for Jupiter, and Lead for Saturn

It is believed that either wondering nomads made the bowls or they were made within the Tibetan monasteries themselves. Since the Chinese invasion of Tibet, the bowl makers have seemed to disappear, until recently! Dragon bowls and Om bowls are now being made by Tibetan refugees in a monastery in Nepal. These bowls are burned, then etched in beautiful designs.

Sound Of The Bowls

It has been found that among the wave patterns of different singing bowls there is a measurable wave pattern which is equivalent to the alpha waves produced by the brain. These bowls instill a sense of deep relaxation and "inner space opening up"

Our Bowls

The bowls we offer are rare, hand made, 7-11 metal singing bowls. When we carry a new bowl, it can be identified by the black finish with etchings. We do not carry new, poured bowls that look like old bowls but are tuned to specific notes. We value the rich tones and harmonics of the hand made traditional bowls. We honestly cannot tell you the age of a particular bowl. To do so would require metallurgical testing and increase the cost per bowl. If you are looking for verified antiquity and certification, we would direct you to other singing bowl websites who specialize in bowl research, for an additional fee. We do promise you that all the bowls we carry are rare, hand made, and have been hand tested for superior sound quality and ease of play. It is more important to us to distribute these wonderful treasures, at reasonable prices, where they can be of healing than to invest the time and money in their dating. Please note also that we use the term Himalayan bowls rather than "Tibetan" bowls. Currently, Tibet cannot be the country of origin for any singing bowl, as Tibet is no longer recognized as a country, but considered a part of China. The bowls we carry most likely have their origin in Tibet and have crossed the surrounding borders to be exported through India and Nepal. For further questions, call us Toll Free at: 888-773-2491

Selecting Your Bowl

The general rule is that a larger, thicker bowl will produce a deeper range of tones than a smaller, thinner bowl. The variable is the amount of internal tension present in the bowl. Remember that these are musical instruments, and originally tuned for various frequencies and pitches. Select the bowl that "sounds" best to you! If you are visiting our store, you can spend an hour or two playing each bowl and finding the right one. If you call us from the web, we will play a variety of bowls for you and you will be able to sense the right one - even over the phone!

Also, different bowls sound differently with different mallets. We carry a wide selection of mallets and will help you find the perfect mallet for the sound that you desire.

Practice With Your Bowl

Playing a singing bowl


Anyone who owns his or her own singing bowl has access to a magic land of great variety. There is much to discover, to experiment with, to hear and to experience in the bowl and your inner self.
Strike or rub the bowl and LISTEN to the sounds and tonal qualities, FEEL the vibrations at different body points, OBSERVE the vibrations (filling the bowl with water may assist observation), SENSE what is occurring in body, mind, and spirit.

What To Expect

Singing bowls have three sets of double tones, very rich in harmonics and micro-tones. A dominant base or male tone, a dominant treble or female tone, and interval dominant consisting of the blending of the base and treble. Experiment with your playing technique until, with time and patience, all tones may be sensed or heard. With practice, the sound of your bowl will be sustained from 30 seconds up to 2 or 3 minutes after you stop playing. You may even find that after playing the bowl for awhile, hours or even days later, walking down the street or reading the paper, you hear the bowl singing in your ears. This is quite natural and signals a very enhanced state of awareness.
