Why Would I Choose A Harmonic Set?: Using harmonic bowls is foundational and one of the most effectual ways of using crystal bowls. Two bowls sound naturally happy together because their hertz values are in simple mathematical ratio with each other. It is proven harmonics create naturally uplifted environments, and we respond to these tones by going into states of inner coherence. Science and medicine confirm that harmonies create natural relaxation, and our bodies and mind both respond to harmonic sounds in ways that are beneficial. What this means is that whether working with just yourself, or working professionally with clients, harmonic bowls will help ease tension, uplift emotion, and bring about natural states of wellbeing and concentration, supporting therapeutic healing. We use harmonic bowls in almost all of the meditations we do in our classes, and have done so for over a decade because they work. If you are looking for a set of crystal bowls, but do not know where to begin, and do not want to invest in a full 7, 8 or 9 bowl set, starting with 2, 3, 4 or 5 harmonic bowls is our top recommendation. Just listen to the sound files and you will hear why.
Which Harmonic Set Should I Choose?: Increasing the number of bowls increases the number of options you have to play. Increasing your playing options gives you the ability to play melodies you would not be able to play with only two bowls. So, if you are interested in playing the bowls musically, having more options will support you. Further, many times changing the tone you are playing helps refocus or transition either your attention or your client’s attention to the meditation or with a change in the meditation. So, if maintaining focus during a meditation is difficult, then changing the tone you are using will help client’s concentration in the meditation. We suggest listening to the sound files for the 2 bowl, 3 bowl, 4 bowl and 5 bowl sets and deciding how many harmonies you will be needing for your work. You can view all our harmonic sets here do listen to the choices. Most meditations can be done well with just a 2 bowl set of crystal singing bowls.
We mainly offer harmonic sets in both the key of A and the key of C. You can see all our options for harmonic sets here. In all the keys, the mathematical ratios of the harmonies and quality of the harmonies are the same, though the first fundamental note of each set is different, one being A and one being C. The sound difference of the two sets is that the key of A will play the harmonies lower in tone than the key of C. Many people are drawn more to lower tones than higher tones and many people purchase the key of A because they are wanting to play lower notes. If you are wanting to start with a harmonic set, and then expand to a 7, 8 or 9 bowl chakra set in the future, this is usually done with purchasing the key of C. Choosing between either key though really comes down to personal preference in sound though, and we suggest listening to the sound files to see which you prefer.

What Is 440hz and 432hz Tuning? Which Should I Get?: There is a good deal of information online about the differences between 440hz and 432hz tuning, and which is better. Here we will just discuss the literal meaning of tuning musical instruments as it is a key understanding for the purchase. If you can imagine a piano, there is a key in the middle called “middle A” or “4th octave A”. On almost all musical instruments in the world this middle A key is tuned to resonate at 440hz. All the other notes higher and lower on a piano are then tuned in relationship to middle A equaling 440hz. This is the meaning of 440hz tuning and is the international standard for tuning musical instruments all over the world. Guitars, flutes, pianos, violins, harps, etc. all over the world are tuned assuming the middle A note equals 440hz. If you are going to purchase your crystal bowl set planning on playing with other musical instruments, such as a harmonium for example, you will most likely want to buy 440hz tuning so that your bowls play in harmony with your musical instruments. 432hz tuning is simply if you flatten the middle A key of a piano or other musical instrument by 8hz to equal 432hz instead of 440hz. Then all the other notes higher and lower are tuned in relationship to middle A equaling 432hz. With 432hz tuning you get a slightly lower pitch with each note in the set. You can listen to the sounds of 440hz and 432hz tuned bowls at the top of the page to help you decide which set is right for you.
Can I Expand This Set Into A Full Chakra Set Or With More Harmonics In The Future?: Yes. We can expand any of these sets with more harmonics or into a full chakra set. We keep track of the tuning of all of the bowls we send out in order to provide customers the right tuning in the future. We can make recommendations to customers for what bowls we recommend to get next for further harmonics. A full 8 bowl chakra set in the key of C would have the following notes: C D E F G A B C.
Why Does High Quality Tuning Matter? Our Quality Guarantee: Precisetuning is crucial to the integrity of the harmonies and melodies you will want to produce in your set. Societies worldwide have studied the harmonic relationships between notes for thousands of years, which is represented in the sequence of notes you will receive. The more precise tuned your set is, the clearer and more uplifted the harmonies you will produce, which will all create a happier environment to relax into and do spiritual therapeutic work. These bowls are guaranteed to be made of premium grade crystal ‘sand’, the highest quality materials in the crystal bowl industry, which gives the best luster and voice quality to the bowls. They are guaranteed to be within +/-5 cent pitch variation of perfect pitch, in your choice of 432 Hz or 440 Hz tuning. This standard of tuning is above the crystal bowl industry standard of +/-10 cent variation in tuning for perfect pitch bowls. Often, we are finding sets sold online that are far beyond a +/- 10 cent variation that gives the set a dissonant quality. We have an over 4 decade background in music, musical instrument making, and sound and shamanic healing practices of various world cultures, and care deeply about the quality of product, and voice of the product we provide you, for the best benefit for you, and your clients.
