Heart Bowl in Birch
11 strings, #633
Heart Bowls have the richest, most intimate-feeling sound. Their depth draws the eye as their sound draws the heart. Birch is the most emotional-sounding wood, carrying the weeping of the birch-branches yet also the soft lightness of their movements, the delicacy of their shadow. Heart Bowls are usually physically deeper than this one so in this case the sound is lighter than usual yet the range and delicacy of tone make up for this, offering a sound to take your heart to tender places.
In this 11 string size the range of tunings is vast. For the moment I am only posting a Major/Myxolidian version but hope to post more early next week – or message me. The manual provided with this instrument guides you through this tuning and around a dozen options including the very gentle Celtic Pentatonic that sing to the inner child.
