8 Bowl Empyrean Crystal Bowl Chakra Sets
About Empyrean Crystal Bowls
Empyrean crystal singing bowls are the perfect fusion of all the good qualities of frosted and clear bowls. They are thicker than clear bowls, much like frosted, and they have the rich voice and volume of frosted bowls. They are easy to play like a frosted bowl. Yet they have the distinct clear tonal quality of clear bowls, and sustain value of clear bowls. They have a perfectly smooth surface like a clear bowl also, so won’t have any of the grating sound from playing frosted bowls (even though our crystal strikers do take away most of the sound from frosted bowls). They are thus the perfect union. If you are looking for a the tonal qualities of a clear bowl, but are interested in the sturdiness and volume of a frosted bowl, these bowls are perfect for you.
What Are 8 Bowl vs 7 Bowl Sets?
The 7 bowl set plays the C major scale - C, D, E, F, G, A, B. Musically this set plays the major scale, do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti. In the crystal bowl industry, this is known as the standard chakra set, where each of the notes relates to a specific chakra in the body. These would be as follows:
C - Root
D - Sacral
E - Solar Plexus
F - Heart
G - Throat
A - Third Eye
B - Crown
The 8 bowl set includes a 8" High C note that rings above the B note. Adding this high C note finishes off the set, or "octave" - so instead of your set just playing "do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti" it plays "do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do." This final note gives the set a sense of completion, and also opens yourself up to a much more harmonic opportunity as this eight bowl is highly harmonic with many other bowls. Also, this 8th bowl allows you to work with the soulstar, or 8th chakra, located above the crown of the head. In many traditions, the 8th chakra is known as the seat of the higher self. We find this final C note to be a highly valuable contribution to the chakra set.
Each set comes standard with 8 o-rings, and 8 suede crystal bowl strikers depending on how many bowls you get. You also will receive 3 free educational videos that will teach you how to play a crystal bowl, play harmonics with a crystal bowl and how to use your voice while playing a crystal bowl. These will be sent to your email as downloads within a week of your purchase. Last this purchase qualifies you for our rewards program, where you will receive 10% off future orders.
We only provide crystal bowl sets that are in perfect incremental tuning to each other, so a purchase from us is also the knowledge that you will be receiving a top of the line quality set. "Incremental" means the notes actually follow the scale accurately, from lowest note to highest note, as they would on a piano keyboard, in precise harmonic intervals. Most sets available online do not do this. The crystal bowl industry, in general, does not take the time or effort to understand the importance of this, or supply an incremental set to their clients, because it is time consuming, and difficult to get these exact pitches in proper sequence.
What Are Nesting Sets?
Please read this article to learn about nesting and safety. Our nesting sets will fit perfectly within 3-4 cases. The sizes of the bowls are as follows: 14" C, 13" D, 12" E, 11" F, 10" G, 9" A, 8" B, 7"-8” C. We are offering this set with our Sunreed Special Purple Crystal Singing Bowl Carrying Case 8"-14". This is the highest quality nesting case we have ever used, perfect for these high quality empyrean bowls. Our nesting singing bowl case comes with padded nesting inserts, so you can nest multiple bowls in a case without needing to add towels or cloth to protect the bowls. This is our current top recommended case for nesting, and if you purchase the cases with the set have taken $25 off each case. Because the bowls are intentionally sized the correct amount apart, you can nest the set in three cases or four cases:
Case 1: 14"C, 11" F, 8" B
Case 2: 13" D, 10" G, 7"-8" C
Case 3: 12" E, 9" A
Quality guarantee, crystal and voice quality, and perfect pitch
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 far above the crystal bowl industry standard of +/-10 cent variation in tuning for ‘perfect pitch’ bowls, something most crystal bowl retailers do not provide, and often are either not fully educated in, or disclose to you, the customer. 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 produce we provide you, for the best benefit for you, and your clients.
Our factory is working with us to provide these premium quality, highly tuned, hand tuned sets. At this time these sets are ready to ship. We are offering free shipping on these sets domestically, within the continental United States. If you are ordering internationally, or from Hawaii or Alaska, our team will reach out to you within one business day with a shipping cost for the delivery.
What Are 440hz Sets?
440hz is the standard hz value for tuning instruments internationally. What this means is that the A note in your chakra set (the middle A) rings right at 440hz, and all the other bowls are tuned in relationship to that A being 440hz, so that the set perfectly tones to do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do. This is what perfect pitch, or true tone means.
What Are 432hz Sets?
432hz tuning is if you flatten the middle A note in the set to ring at 432hz instead of 440hz, and then all the other bowls are tuned in relationship to that A being 432hz so that the set tones incrementally and perfectly to do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do. 432hz gives all the bowls a slightly sweeter tone then 440hz tuning.
What Are Custom Pitched Sets?
In custom pitched sets, the middle A is not tuned to 440hz or 432hz, but a different hz value within the range of the A note. For example, if the A is tuned to 435hz and the rest of the set is tuned to that, this is a really nice tuning that is very pleasant to listen to but does not have the same cost as perfect pitch 440 or 432hz sets. If you choose the custom pitch option we will choose the best set possible at the time, OR, you can specially request a certain tuning from us. You can either put that request in the special instructions box at check out, or give us a call or email with the request. firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-674-9585
