NEW!

These unique sticks are of a heavy hardwood like our leather sticks, but have a soft felt wrapping on one end instead of the harder leather. These sticks bring out all of the harmonics of a tiny or small bowl without the initial harsh impact sound. We have been testing these sticks for playing and recording our smallest singing bowls and  we love the sounds they evoke.

We carry them in two sizes:
- small, about 14 cm or 5-1/2" long and 1.9cm or 3/4" in diameter for tiny bowls and
- medium, about 24 cm or 8" long and 2.5cm or 1" in diameter for small bowls.

These sticks ARE NOT SUITABLE for those who RUB their singing bowls rather than striking them. They are not hard enough to produce a sound in that manner and the felt will be destroyed.  For those bowl players who rub their bowls rather than striking them we carry leather sticks in a wide variety of sizes for tiny to quite large sized bowls.

Please never ever strike or rub your bowl with bare wood or metal.
