The Meinl Sonic Energy Singing Bowls are handcrafted in India using traditional methods. Each singing bowl starts by sourcing high grade metals to provide a pure tone. Then in the hands of the skilled artisans, an individual masterpiece is created displaying the quality and care put into each instrument. Finally, each singing bowl passes through Meinl's quality control in Germany before being shipped to their customers. There are three series of singing bowls: UNIVERSAL, ENERGY and COSMOS. From universal bowls for yoga and meditation to specific singing bowls used for sound massage and therapeutic purposes, Meinl has a singing bowl for every purpose and passion. The Energy Series Singing Bowls, from Meinl Sonic Energy, feature a reinforcement rim that produces a high tone at first followed by a deep tone afterwards, and they have a very long sustain.
