To play a singing bowl strike the bowl on the outer rim with a mallet for isolated notes. You can do this while holding the bowl or sitting it on the included felt ring. To allow it to "sing”, circle the mallet and add slight pressure against the rim of the bowl continuously. The amount of pressure and duration can enhance the dynamics. You can help the bowl to "sing"by striking the rim to warm it up first.
(Pitches of each singing bowl may vary)
