We love strikers made from mango wood for a multitude of reasons. The wood of the mango tree is a hard wood with a dense multi-pattern grain, giving it the perfect weight and durability we look for in a singing bowl striker. Mango wood is also praised for its sustainability. Mango wood trees mature to full size in just around 15 years and are cut only when they are too tall to harvest from or when they stop bearing fruit completely. Using the wood to make strikers gives extra income to mango farmers and repurposes the felled trees that had traditionally been burned. The wood is durable and easy to work with, and we find it is perfect for rim-singing Himalayan singing bowls.
This giant suede striker has the necessary weight that it takes to rim sing bowls that are over 14” in diameter with great ease and produce low tones due to the surface and its heavier weight. When striking a bowl with this striker, it will produce low deep tones with some higher undertones. The size of this striker is enough to make even the biggest of Himalayan singing bowls sing to their fullest potential.
