Singing Bowl Blow-out
These beautiful hand-hammered metal bowls imported from Nepal, make the perfect sound to get students' attention in a classroom. Use the wool-wrapped end of the wooden baton to strike the outside of the bowl to create a mellow "gong" sound. Rub the wood end of the mallet around the outside edge of the bowl to make it "sing" with a peaceful relaxing tone. Sound created by the medium-sized bowl is perfectly suited to a classroom setting.
-Comes with a beautiful brocade cushion, striker and instruction card.
- Several sizes available
Choose your color: polished GOLD or antique BRONZE.
