Length: 89.5cm, Width: 6cm

Key: E

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.

    They twang good

    They’re a good price for an introductory instrument. The instructions that came with them were helpful. They arrived quickly and in good condition. So hard to find this instrument in Aus at a chill price so I really appreciated it. I’d suggest getting the other one that’s in a different key as well.

    instrument works well, paint on it wasn't in pic

    i am enjoying my jew harp. nice value. only negative is its covered in a sparkly blue paint job (this wasn't displayed but is common among cheaper instruments) which i had to sand off after having got the paint in my mouth making me feel sick. once i'd removed the paint from the piece, everything has been fine.
