Singing bowls: More than just sounds

Singing bowls are spiritual musical instruments; they are also a key to inner peace and relaxation. In this article you will find out what the purpose of singing bowls is and what you can do with them.

Singing bowl , singing bowls – these terms immediately create an image of harmonious sounds and meditation. But what purpose do singing bowls really have? These versatile instruments are much more than just sound generators.

Singing bowls have been used in spiritual practices, meditation and healing for centuries. The gentle, soothing sound produced by playing a singing bowl with a clapper can relieve stress, promote concentration and calm the mind. They are used not only in meditation but also in music therapy and relaxation therapy to create a harmonious atmosphere.

Singing bowls as a musical instrument: More than just legato

There are other great uses for singing bowls as musical instruments.

Here are just three of them:

  1. Combining singing bowls : If you combine different sizes, entire melodies can be played by striking them, similar to the Indian Tabla Tarang concept. We offer coordinated singing bowls upon request.

  2. Drink sound : Of course, you can't really drink sound. What is meant is a technique in which you hold your mouth to the edge of the singing bowl, strike the bowl and then open and close your mouth. This looks a bit like a fish opening and closing its jaw. But this creates interesting sounds.

  3. Fill the bowls with water : Water changes the pitch. This invites you to experiment and striking creates beautiful patterns on the water.

Buying singing bowls: What you should pay attention to

If you're thinking about purchasing a singing bowl, be it a mini singing bowl or a larger version, there are some important aspects to consider. Here are some tips to ensure you make the right choice:

  • Sound quality : Make sure that the singing bowl produces a clear and pleasant sound. No singing bowl sounds exactly the same. We therefore have a 14-day right of return, and if you don't like the sound, simply send the singing bowl back.

  • Size : Depending on your intended use, you can choose between mini singing bowls and larger versions. Mini singing bowls are more portable and work well for travel, while larger bowls produce deeper sounds.

  • Material : Singing bowls can be made from different materials such as bronze or brass. The choice of material influences the sound and appearance of the shell. Our singing bowls are made of bronze, but are lead-free and non-toxic.

  • Bobbin : Don't forget to choose a matching bobbin. Clappers made from different materials produce different sounds, so it's worth trying different ones.

  • Price : Singing bowls are available in different price ranges. Set a budget, but be prepared to spend a little more to get a high-quality singing bowl.


Singing bowls are much more than just musical instruments. They are tools for relaxation, meditation and healing. If you want to buy a singing bowl, pay attention to the sound quality, the size, the material, the clapper and your budget. A carefully selected singing bowl can help you find inner peace and balance and is an enrichment for your spiritual practice.
