The Bridging Bowl has two fans of strings, one above the other. These interact giving intense harmonic richness with truly exceptional overtone patterns adding a bell like clarity out of all proportion to the instrument’s size. The deepest note sits in the centre of the Bowl, with the higher notes alternating across the left and right string sets to complete the scale; it can be made with between 10-22 strings in total.
The crossover string pattern is complimented by having dark pegs on one side and light pegs on the other. Strings on the light side have their roots in the dark whilst those played on the dark side are rooted in the light. Harmony arises through playing both light side and dark. Symbolically, the contrasting peg colours emphasise the work of the Bridging Bowl to heal division by opening the heart and crossing the threshold between the two hemispheres of our Being.
