Information about Original Schwarz Jaws Harp (Size 12)
The Jaws or "Jews" harp is one of the simplest and most widely distributed instruments being found throughout Europe and Asia. This jaws harp is hand crafted and tuned by Schwartz - it consists of a tiny iron frame, open at one end, in which end a single strip of metal vibrates. The frame is held between your teeth, and the strip then twanged by your finger. The strip, in itself, is capable of producing only one note, but the harmonics of this note become available by resonance, through various shapes made in the cavity of your mouth.
Schwartz have been making jaws harps since 1679.
