Thanks for your review! it will be published soon. Thank you! your review was submitted
While this bowl looked gorgeous at the start, I quickly found it to start leaving giant deposits of black residue that smear away from the body of the bowl, and get all over your hands. This is unacceptable craftsmanship, and it can be seen from my attached picture that the black dye used on the bowl is quickly removing itself from the bowl's body, and ruining its aesthetic design. Very disappointed that this bowl didn't live up to expectations that its generally very-favorable reviews have suggested. I'm not sure what the issue is that's causing this to happen. Sings fine, but that doesn't do too much good when the item is so messy and of poor structural integrity. Messaged seller regarding this issue.UPDATE: The seller was incredibly understanding, and sent a replacement bowl with prompt thorough communication. The new one is great, and doesn't have any smudging or paint issues present. Review changed to reflect excellent seller policy and customer service!
I recently brought my new bowl to work, not sure how I’d use it. Whenever a patient would ask about it, I’d give it a tap, & without fail, lovely smiles emerged reflexively at the bowl’s resonant sound. My best use now is if I get too wound up explaining a rationale for a recommended medication, for example, & am not listening as well as I’d like to my patient. When I notice, I’ll tap it & pause until the ringing abates & invite their thoughts. Today I’m ordering another for home. If I find myself feeling demanding or confrontational with a family member, I can tap it & wait until the bowl is done “speaking” before I take my turn. A patient with weight challenges today wrote down a Silent Mind memo to herself to buy later. She plans to use hers whenever she gets that late night desire to binge on junk food. She told me hearing the bowl awakened in her a thoughtful presence unlikely to burden her future self with a bloated belly & a floor littered with empty chip bags. “The sound reminds me I’m already full, full of joy, full of presence,” she said with a big smile. More uses? Probably. I wonder if I can safely use it in the car for my commute to help transcend my moments of impatience. I imagine the sound melting my icy, entitled road rage into a soothing cup of warm chai. The bowl & cushion & striker are exquisite to touch, to look at, & especially to listen to. Highly recommended.
My first singing bowel, my expectations were, I didn’t know what to expect... but I was so happy from the moment I unwrapped it.. it’s pretty! And the sound is long and clear, this won’t be my last singing bowel from silent mind . I plan on ordering many more now that I know that they are everything I wanted and more... thank you silent mind ! Please keep the quality as you have done...
I ding it for anxiety. It doesn't magically make anxiety go away but it makes it easier to calm my mind and deal with it.
I love this singing bowl. The bowl is absolutely beautiful in appearance and sound. The bowl delivered well packaged and the company that sells this have been super helpful and communicative. I definitely recommend this singing bowl and look forward to many years of use!
My bowl arrived swiftly and well protected within the box. When I took off the bubble wrap and held it in my hand and activated its sound with the mallet, a very sweet song emminated. The next day I used the singing bowl before meditation, chiming it three times before going within deeper and clearer than the day before. Being a sound healer, I completely understand and have experienced the power of various sound currents and frequencies to change human physiology, mentality and emotions. This beautifully made bowl not only sounds good, it feels good. Too, the Tibetan Ohm symbol in the middle of the inside of the bowl adds an energy to the bowl that is healing as well.
Love this piece! Couldn't be more pleased with the craftsmanship of the bowl, mine was the brass one. Looks just like the picture. Also easy to get it singing. Basically works like how you can rub your finger across the top of of a wet crystal wineglass but instead here by using the dry felt wooden mallet to first hit the inside a time or two and then using the felt portion to make a circular and pivoting rotation around the outside edges of rim whilst keeping your hand pivoting around the center of the bowl also while holding it he with the nice padded cloth accessory so that it resonates well. Definitely worth the few extra dollars than the cheaper machined versions out there, I would imagine. 100% satisfied!!
Edit: I am changing my star level and updating my review. Seller contacted me about the product and said the bowl was a defect. They refunded my money and sent out another bowl as a replacement. I recieved the new bowl and it sings easily and beautifully and the bowl itself looks beautiful. The other bowl was absolutely a defect compared to this one. There is a huge difference from the original bowl and the new one. A slight tap and it sings, a light touch around the bowl and it sings loudly and easily. Very beautiful! Thank you very much.It was delivered quickly which was nice. But, I do not like it. The paint on it is sloppy and smeared so it's not good looking. Also, I can not make it sing. I can make it hum slightly very low for a few seconds with a lot of work but that is all. Even tapping it doesn't have a good sound to it. If I tap it then try to make it sing after the tap, the second I touch the bowl the sound stops immediately. I watched the videos from other customers and my bowl doesn't even come close to any of those sounds! If I stop touching it, it stops making any sounds. Hardly any vibration. Very disappointed. I understand that it is not a traditional authentic tibetan singing bowl but it does not produce sound hardly and when it does it sounds terrible and low.
Since this bowl is on the smaller side, 4 inches, the pitch is a bit higher (although I don't exactly know which note it is!). That said, it is low enough to not be shrill and give one that tingly sensation from hearing something too high-pitched. The design of both the both and the cushion are beautiful. I actually found it relatively easy to make the bowl sing, and even just hitting the bowl on the side produces a lasting, relaxing noise. They also email you a user guide about how to use the bowl and how to take care of it, so even if that part doesn't come naturally to you, they have you covered! They also follow up with you to make sure you're pleased with the product. Great purchase for a more than reasonable price!
I purchased this lovely and elegant singing bowl for our autistic daughter who is fascinated by anything that makes sound. She mastered playing it almost immediately! It fits easily in her hand and produces pure tones that are very mesmerizing. She says it makes her want to focus--something positive for an autistic person. Or anyone, for that matter. You do not have to be involved in yoga or new age meditation to appreciate and use this singing bowl.
This bowl is beautiful and makes a very nice sound. The striker and pillow are also high quality. Even the paper used for the instructions is unusual and appealing. The only thing better than the bowl and accessories has been the customer service from Silent Mind. What wonderful people. They truly do put their hearts into making sure their customers are happy. I wish them great success and hope everyone reads this review and sends them business. And, yes, I really am a first-time customer with no previous dealings with anyone at Silent Mind. TWELVE STARS!
Not only is this singing bowl beautiful to look at, but its tone is absolutely lovely. It's a perfect compliment to the slightly larger bowl I already possess. When I'm able to add more bowls to my collection, I will not hesitate for a moment to go through this seller. At a time when you're lucky to even reach a live person when you call a business today, superior customer service is that much more appreciated---and believe me when I tell you, Silent Mind's customer service is exactly that---superior! I was contacted by email shortly after my bowl was scheduled to arrive so the seller could first ensure that I did, in fact, receive it, and second to answer any questions I might have or concerns they might address. Who does that anymore? In any case, I am thrilled enough with my purchase, but with service so spectacular, I'll be a customer for life. :)
This is a really intricate and beautiful bowl, the color seems vibrant and the pattern seems almost ancient. I bought this as a gift for my best friend and he really loves it. We have used it for meditating. The sustained pitch really helps with calming the senses and getting into a zone.The wood mallet feels light and durable, the small leather pad looks very precisely cut and applied. This is an awesome product that has both form and function.The sound quality is at a really good pitch that can stimulate a feeling of complete silence once your ears are in tune with it. We haven't noticed any inconsistency with the sustained vibration using the leather pad side to rub the bowl's outside metal side.The tactile vibration you can experience from placing the bowl in your hand is a subtle, calming tingle that adds to the overall experience.Combine this with the right conditions and the right mindset and you can really have a awesome experience that you should allow yourself to have.In terms of packaging and shipping the item arrived in perfect condition and really well preserved. Shipping was fast and the Vendor is really nice and dedicated to customer service. If I ever need an item related I will surely contact this vendor again.If you are interested in this item, do your research, take your time and know your needs so you can purchase accordingly. Set realistic expectations and enjoy the experience.
I was really hesitant about this because I wasn't sure if I would like the sound, but I was pleasantly surprisedz very soothing. Great quality for the price.
