Code: JEWHARP-839

Length: 7.5cm, Width: 4.7cm

The Jews Harp is an instrument of no rules yet an amazing amount of sounds and fun packed into an incredibly neat little package.

A small lyre-shaped  folk instrument of uncertain age and origin that was commonly used in Europe in the Middle Ages.

The rounded part of the Jew's Harp is held between the thumb and forefinger of the left hand. The narrow part of the frame should be positioned on the teeth of the performer.

A small, bent, metal tongue inside the frame is then plucked by the finger of the performer to vibrate the tongue producing tones.

The origin of the name is unknown as it has no apparent connection to the Jewish people.

Great Harp November 28, 2012
Reviewer: Kieran Harman from Perth, WA Australia  
This type of mouth harp is harder to play than a Dan Moi but is still a lot of good fun.
