This is an approximate size, as these strikers are hand made.
We love strikers made from mango wood for a multitude of reasons. The wood of the mango tree is a hard wood with a dense multi-pattern grain, giving it the perfect weight and durability we look for in a singing bowl striker. Mango wood is also praised for its sustainability. Mango wood trees mature to full size in just around 15 years and are cut only when they are too tall to harvest from or when they stop bearing fruit completely. Using the wood to make strikers gives extra income to mango farmers and repurposes the felled trees that had traditionally been burned. The wood is durable and easy to work with, and we find it is perfect for rim-singing Himalayan singing bowls.
This small suede striker can be used either by the suede or the wooden handle, and are perfect for bowls in between 3 to 5”. When rim singing or striking with the felt side, this striker can produce a smooth and deep tone with any Tibetan or cast Himalayan singing bowl. The wooden side of the striker when either sung on rim or striking will produce very high and bright tones.
