ABOUT THE SOUND RECORDING
At the beginning of the sound sample, we strike the bowl on the top of the outer rim with a medium-hard mallet. Then, we rub the bowl on the top of the outer rim with a padded leather drumstick and, at the end of the recording, we tap it gently with the padded part of the drumstick.

TYPE OF BOWL: ULTIBATI
ULTIBATI bowls are wide, with high, open, cauldron-shaped rims. The bases are flat and large. The entire bowl is usually rough and hammer marks are visible, except for the curved rim end, about 4cm, which is smoother and polished. Many have the entire lower part, from the curve down, painted black. The separation of the two parts is often marked by a deep line.
They are usually found in medium and, above all, large sizes. They are thin and weigh little compared to their size. They sing for a long time with low sounds and emit strong vibrations. The rarer and older, high-quality specimens have more stable and wider sounds and a high range of harmonics. To get a good sound it is advisable to play them with a softer mallet than usual.
They are mainly used for therapy and concerts.
