Bass Jaw Harp with a caseBass Jaw Harp with a case

Oberton Pro “Shugunyak” Jews Harp

One of the best modern bass jaw harps. Heavy, stylish frame; hard reed; rich and clean timbre. The sound is different from the most other bass jews harps in terms of overtone cleanliness – it is not just boatload of random frequencies, giving huge wow-factor for beginners, but a set of exact harmonic pitches that we use in music and that create “balance” sensation in intuitive level.

Extremely easy to play by newbies and virtuosos. Absolute tactile pleasure. Suitable for various stroking techniques without compromising mechanical stability or spectrum integrity.

Special feature: magnetic ball can be removed from reed ring which makes a sound higher – it is 2-in-1 jews harp.

This jews harp is a top quality, perfectly adjusted musical instrument. It is not a toy like “Snoopy Jaw Harp” or stamped Austrian maultrommels.

How to make sounds

To produce first sound, two frame ends must be hardly pressed to upper and lower teeth – not to lips – with left hand. Right index finger, vertically positioned, will stroke reed elbow at direction, perpendicular to frame plane, inward and outward.

Most common mistakes:

Dampening reed with lips – try to remove them completely from the frame first time. Lips should not help to hold jews harps.
Pressing frame to lips instead of teeth – sound will be muffled and quiet.
Pressing frame too hard, squeezing it with lips or fingers – in this case you will hear metallic clanging when reed hit frame. IT IS NOT JEWS HARP FAULT and nothing should be “repaired”, except handling accuracy!

If all ok and you started buzzing, try to move tongue, throat, change shape of mouth. Some positions will produce exact notes; some just change timbre and volume. Let the fun begins!
