Sunreed's Quartz Crystal Singing Bowl Strikers
These are all our most highly recommended strikers. The striker is a pure quartz crystal rod with a silicon sleeve covering half of it. The silicon plays the crystal bowl effortlessly, without the 'swishing' sound a suede striker makes on frosted bowls. Its play-ability is similar to a ball striker though, unlike a ball striker, you no longer need to concern yourself with having the wooden handle of a ball strike the surface of the frosted bowl with its disheartening sound. We have gone through many versions of these crystal strikers to ensure we have found a quality of silicon that truly plays the bowls effortlessly.
Our most highly recommended striker is the Medium Size - 8 3/8" x 5/8". This is the smaller of the two strikers pictured. This is typically the most ideal weight and size for both large and small hands.
Our Large Size striker is the 8 3/8" x 3/4". The extra width to the striker creates a sturdy and heavier hand feel. People with larger hands may appreciate the larger striker for the bigger grip.
