The Jews Harp is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. It is a small instrument that uses the mouth cavity as its own sound box - it is played when held against the teeth –supported by the lips, and plucked with a finger. Like the Didjeridoo, this is a single note instrument that produces overtones using similar tongue techniques. It is a very easy instrument to play, and it requires no musical background.
Jews Harps appear in many cultures and are used in ethnic music, and in some places in Shamanic ceremonies. It can be used to bring on trance.
Today it is most commonly made of metal, while in old times it was made of wood or bamboo.
We offer a wide range of selected quality Jews Harps from Asia and Europe, as well as our signature Jews Harps wooden boxes, recommended for keeping this delicate instrument safe. The boxes are hand made from various types of wood.
