Antique Naga Singing Bowls are also termed Pedestal bowls, Chalice bowls, or Stem bowls. The defining feature is the welded base upon which they rest - although in sound healing one can also suspend them from the hand by the base, using them to encircle the head of the listener/client, or for use in concert swinging from side to side, thus applying a sort of 'Doppler effect.' The bowl itself often possesses a very curved base. With the 'stand' there is no necessity for the bowl to have a flat base. However, the 'stand' reaches up the wall of the bell and acts as a dampener upon the sounds. Because of this feature, these bowls will also often produce a tone higher than one might generally expect form a bowl of similar diameter. With their base inhibiting the sound, these bowls tend to sound best when sung. The walls can vary from a natural bell-like curve to the rim towards being sharply angled where they mostly bend up back inwards to the rim. (Frank Perry, "Himalayan Sound Revelations", 2014)
