Buy Jew's harp: How it works and types

The jew's harp consists of a frame with a metal tongue attached to the side. When this tongue is made to vibrate, a sound is produced. In our online store we offer:

  • Frame jew's harps, such as Dan Moi
  • Bowed Jew's harps, such as the Murchunga

The basic principle of playing is the same for both types of jew's harp: the frame of the drum is held to the lips of the player in such a way that the resonance chamber of his oral cavity amplifies the vibration of the metal tongue. This is how the loud, characteristic sound is produced.
Different playing techniques are used to create different tones and dynamics. The player works on the one hand by changing the size of the resonance chamber in the mouth, and on the other hand with different breathing techniques. In this way the Jew's Harp creates a real sound experience!
