Singing bowls are played by the friction of rubbing a wooden, plastic, or leather wrapped mallet around the rim of the bowl to produce overtones and a continuous 'singing' sound. High quality singing bowls produce a complex chord of harmonic overtones. They can also be played by striking with a soft mallet to produce a warm bell tone. The sounds of singing bowls are unique because they are multiphonic instruments, producing multiple harmonic overtones at the same time.

The distinct characteristics of these sounds serve as an aid to meditation and as a tool in yoga, music therapy, sound healing and personal enjoyment. The actual origins of singing bowls can be dated back to the 8th-10th century BC. Until recent times, singing bowls were primarily used in Buddhist and by Eastern Healing Practitioners.
