Very beautiful but not good quality sound.

The bowl is visually very beautiful. However, it is very challenging to create an even tone without a massive amount of interference and reverberation. I feel as though the carry case is somewhat of a gimmick as I don't see any need for it. The original mallet provided with the bowl is not good and cannot produce a tone. I don't know why. But the maker clearly knew this too as they also included a second, all wood mallet which does work. I feel that there must be some manufacturing flaw in this bowl. When you do manage to create a tone, it is almost impossible to maintain without reverberation and I have spent some time trying. As attractive as this bowl is, it is not likely to end up as part of my regular bowl routine.
