We propose efficient implementations of a glass harmonica and a Tibetan bowl using circular digital waveguide networks. Circular networks provide a physically meaningful representation of bowl resonators. Just like the real instruments, both models can be either struck or rubbed using a hard mallet, a violin bow, or a wet finger.
