Given that the instrument in question is rather inexpensive, you should take that into account. I daresay that the application of this particular instrument is quite limited, however I must say that it's extraordinary, both as an instrument and simply as decor. The coppery hues are very unique, however it must be said that the surface is splattered with small indents in the surface and the finish is.. acceptable, although not exquisite. You may be able to pass it off as an antique piece at a glance.
As an instrument, it's quite obvious that they've not overlooked the material of the bowl, it is most obviously brass through and through and as such it's timber can be sampled at even the most gentle of touches, giving off a similar chime to that of a bell.
The tone whenever it's being "circled" is very glassy and seemingly fills the room. It's tone is still very high pitched, however.
The finish of the bowl is occasionally cratered and defaced.
Good quality material.
