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 medium weight suede striker is perfect for singing bowls from 7 to 10” in diameter, and has a grip that is perfect for allowing full wrist motion when rim singing. When using to strike the bowl, this tool will bring out several medium high to high tones. This striker is mainly for singing on the rim, however, and will produce a very controlled medium tone when rim singing.
