For the most harmonious sound!
In order to create a soothing sound, the right mallet is important. It must match the character of the bowl and be the right size and material. If your mallet is too large or too soft, you may produce a dull sound.
As a rule of thumb:
Small bowls need a small mallet. Large bowls need a larger and softer mallet. The thin leather-covered XDrum mallet is ideal for striking or rubbing small singing bowls.
Size and material set the tone!
