Lyre Bowl in Sycamore – 19 string
The sound of such a large Lyre Bowl is powerful, it fills a rooom with ease and lasts for minutes after being played. It can be felt deep into the body. The sound of Sycamore is strong and holding. This tree’s energy is Jupiter, Sacred Mother. The feeling is of receiving a warm blessing. Together they create an instrument with deep healing powers.
A bowl of this type is typically kept in a “Gong tuning” such that a simple sweep across the strings releases the full resonance and harmony. The sound sample below begins that way, then individual notes are picked out, all within the harmonic tuning. The “full scale” tuning is an F-Major scale with all seven diatonic notes, giving two full octaves plus one third. The manual also shows you how to tune minor scales and ancient modes, including the popular middle-eastern Hijaz mode.
As with all larger Sounding Bowls this one comes with a hard case, soft lined and padded as well as an auto-tuner and manual. The bowl is 66cm (26″) across and weighs 2.6kg
As a personal music-maker, this instrument can lead you into harmonies, inwardly and outwardly, that take you to new levels of development.
As a sound-healing tool this size of Lyre Bowl is a powerful tool, it can help your clients to ground and to centre themselves in profound and gentle ways. Particularly good at the end of a gong-bath. In the right situation, I am told by people using these, you can achieve more in 15 minutes than a gong might do in 45. Strings touch the heart in ways other instruments cannot.
This instrument has seen light usage but remains in as-new condition. Strings were all new in June 2023.
