From what age do you recommend Jew's harp?

5-6-year-old kids can already handle the instrument pretty well and safely.

How long does it take to deliver the Jew's harps?

Usually 5-7 days. Although it is very important to note that each and every Jew's harp is hand-crafted and made to order. We have many different types in many different keys and these instruments are made for the Client's order. There are types that we can deliver on the day you ordered but it in special cases the orders might jam-up a bit. In this case, we inform our Clients on our website.

Which Jew's harp to chose?

Check the tutorial video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bt3J2hevaY8
Briefly here's a quick and simplified guide:
1. First Jew's harp > for a non-musician > can't play the Jew's harp yet >> Classic, Kancellár
2. First Jew's harp > for a musician  >can't play the Jew's harp yet >> Balance Big
3. Already has a Jew's harp, but it doesn't sound well >> Balance Big, Black Fire
4. Already has a Jew's harp, but needs an other one too. If the other one is tuned, chose an octave higher or lower. Low: Black Fire, High: Aztec Mini

Do I need to select tuning?

Check the tutorial video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHLsxdrH-OM
Shortly: musicians and those who want to play together with other people: select a tuning. For everyone else, it is not needed. A Jew's harp without tuning has the same high sound quality as a tuned one.

What's the difference between the black and shiny ones?

The shiny ones are nickel-finished, the black ones are blackened (galvanized). It is almost impossible to hear the difference between the two. In the same circumstances, the nickelled starts to get oxidated a bit later than the black one. The black ones sound slightly a bit brighter. These differences are really hinted. If you are sensitive to nickel, don't buy a nickelled one. The main difference is mainly esthetical.

Have you got a store?

No, we don't have a store, we sell on-line. 

Where can I try the Jew's harp in person?
