Singing Bowls

Singing Bowls


Sometime in 2019 I ordered a cheap singing bowl online. It seemed like the obvious thing to sample. Recorded a wonderful pad, hit it, and discovered that if I spun the bowl on my desk before hitting it I could create a pad with a nice rumble.At the end of the year my Mum gave me another singing bowl for Christmas so I made some similar instruments with this.

I have also included 2 extra instruments, one made using my metal Chillys bottle, and another using the lid of a casserole dish. I have they are simple and fun but I did not feel they were worth submitting on their own.


Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!

Singing bowls can add a high-end shimmer to virtually any track. They’re relatively easy to mix and sound great with some good reverb. I experimented with several of Liam’s sampled bowls and settled on four that sounded best for my demo. I especially like the bowl verb pads (you may need to rein them in a bit to prevent them dominating the tonal bandwidth). I now feel as though I’ve spent a couple of days meditating in Tibet.
