Many of the metal singing bowls that were delivered recently, have a barcode sticker on the bottom (outside) of the bowl that is difficult to remove.
We will of course correct this mistake with the supplier before the next delivery.
For now, we offer them with a €0,50 discount and request you to remove the sticker yourself. This can be done with some detergent and a damp cloth.
The article numbers with the from/to price with €0,50 discount are the bowls it concerns.
Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

The handmade metal singing bowls of Phoenix Import mainly consist of copper and tin – a.k.a. bronze, a material which has been produced by mankind since ancient times - with in small quantities 8 other metals: silver, nickel, cadmium, ruthenium, palladium, platinum, chromium, and manganese.
The proportion of copper and tin differs in the different types of singing bowls:
- Chaken, Chakra, Dewa, Ishana, Engraved Buddhas, OHM and Nada: approximately 69.5% copper, 29.5% tin and 1% other metals.
- Chöpa, Nirmala, Samadhi and Shanti: approx. 67% copper, 32% tin and 1% other.
The machine-made singing bowls consist mainly of copper and zinc with the addition of tin – a.k.a. brass - and the 8 other metals mentioned above:
- Zen Koan, OMPMH (NE0263 series), Singing Bowl with Buddha (NE0273/12 + NE0273/16), Singing Bowl with Tara ((NE0274/12 + NE0274/16) and the gift sets Ohm (NE0292 & NE0293): 59% copper, 33% zinc, 7% tin and 1% other metals.
On average, the machine-made bowls of Phoenix have a higher tone than the handmade ones.
About the sound of handmade singing bowls, in general one can say: the bigger the bowl, the lower the tone; the smaller the bowl, the higher the tone. The sound however also depends on the thickness and height of the wall. Each handmade bowl is unique and will produce its own unique sound. This is part of the charm and power of metal singing bowls. It is therefore not possible to report 'fixed' tones of the singing bowls on the website, as these vary per bowl.

All handmade singing bowls at Phoenix Import are sorted by weight. The diameter mentioned is meant as an indication, so that you have an idea of the width of the bowl. But beware, this is an indication; the bowls are handmade, so the diameter can differ.
Chaken is a bronze singing bowl with black finishing on the outside. The singing bowl gives a longlasting, full sound.
The Chöpa has on average a somewhat thicker wall and gives a solid sound. Very wide range of weight classes are available. This handmade singing bowl is sometimes provided with engraving around the rim and sometimes without, this is delivered assorted.
The De-Wa singing bowl also has a thicker wall, is wider and gives a full long-lasting sound.
The stylish Ishana singing bowl has a somewhat thinner wall and a higher tone that rings beautifully. Ishana has a black-golden look.
The different types of Tibetan singing bowls are decorated with different types of Buddhas, mantras or Tibetan symbols. For example, the female Buddha Tara and Saraswati, the Buddha of the arts who generates joy and prosperity by hearing singing bowl music.
There are also the singing bowls with Flower of Life, which unite this powerful symbol from the West and the ancient Buddhist symbolism from the East. Truly unique!
Nada Yoga means 'unity through sound' and is a bowl that is ideally suited for singing bowl meditation by concentrating on the true nature of [the] sound. Has a full sound that resonates for a long time.
Nirmala is characterised by its basic shape and look. A singing bowl for those who do not like fuss but do like a good quality singing bowl.
Like the De-Wa series, the bowls with the engraved Om/ Auhm/ Ohm symbol have a thicker wall. This traditional symbol from Hinduism makes it a perfect bowl for singing bowl yoga.
Samadi has a somewhat thinner wall with a wide, low flared shape. Gives a special subtle sound with many overtones.
Shanti is a real bling bling bowl with its beautiful golden colour. It has a slightly wider flared shape and long-lasting sound.
The advantage of machine-made singing bowls is that there is more consistency in sound and appearance than with handmade bowls.
The Tibetan singing bowls with Om Mani Padme Hum (OMPMH) have a clear sound with many overtones. The engraved OMPMH mantra gives the bowls something extra, namely the intentional power of compassion.
The Japanese Zen Koan bowls have a sleek, serene look like Japanese temple singing bowls often have. The sound is relatively high and light. Ideal for a singing bowls session or singing bowl massage in which you want to activate the higher chakras.
The choice of a singing bowl stick is partly a personal choice that depends on the type of sound you like. However, there are guidelines as to which mallets "work" with which bowls. In general, the larger the scale, the larger the singing bowl stick is required. A felt stick is used to beat the wall to produce sound. A singing bowl rubbing stick is used to rub the edge of the bowl to make the bowl sing.
With our singing bowls we show the kind of sticks that fit each bowl. However, what is shown is not complete, it gives an indication as to which type of stick you can build from.
All metal singing bowls come without any sticks, unless otherwise stated. Order them separately.
Sound massages are not only powerful when the singing bowls are placed around someone but can also have a deeply relaxing and purifying effect by using a foot bowl. We sell a beautiful, richly decorated singing bowl specifically for that purpose, but any large metal singing bowl can be used, as long as the diameter is large enough to stand in. And by large bowls we mean those weighing about 10 kg. A foot singing bowl is the ideal supplement for singing bowl therapy and sound healing.
Of course you will want to keep your singing bowls pristine for as long as possible. Through usage – i.e. skin contact – but also due to humidity or other influences, your singing bowl’s shine may dull over time. Even a newly bought singing bowl can sometimes show minor stains. This is a consequence of how they are made. Luckily, there is a solution. With our organic cleaning paste (article number 14114) they’ll shine like new in no time. Do be mindful to dry the bowl well after use!
