Jew's harp, humming iron, mouth harp, classic folk instrument, still popular today in the Alpine region, but also known in many other cultures, e.g. in Asia or Russia.

Many names exist for this small instrument.

A metal spoon is made to vibrate. If you hold the instrument in front of your mouth between your lips, the tones become loud because the mouth becomes the resonance body of the instrument.

The jew's harp has a very unique sound that has something primeval about it. The jew's harp is also a shamanic instrument.

The roots of this instrument can be traced back to pre-Christian times. Their origins are in Asia, Mongolia and Siberia.The South Asian jaw harps are built slightly differently than the European ones. They are made from a piece of sheet brass. The Danmoi from Vietnam has become known in this way.
In Europe, the jew harp is a popular folk instrument in the Alpine region, but also in Sicily and the Balkans.

Unsere Empfehlung


Aus einem Stück Schilfrohr geschnittene Flöte aus Indien. Einer traditionellen Stimmung zufolge mit nur sechs Grifflöchern versehen und damit genauso wie die Tin-whistle zu spielen. Eine gute Variante zur Tin-whistle mit etwas rauchigem und wärmerem Klang.
Vor allem die großen Flöten in tiefer Tonlage sind eine günstige Alternative zur Low-whistle.

Neben den Blockflöten gibt es die Schilfflöten in gleicher Art auch als Querflöte.

Als Block- oder Querflöte bieten wir folgende Tonarten an:
hohe Lage in g (21 cm lang), fis, f, e, dis, d (29 cm lang), cis, c (33 cm lang), h und b
tiefe Lage in a, gis, G (43 cm), F und E (54 cm).

Die tiefen Flöten ab der Stimmung G sind etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig vom Greifen her und mit kleinen Händen schwer oder gar nicht zu spielen.

Diese einfachen Flöten sind in sich recht sauber gestimmt, der Grundton kann aber bis zu einem Viertelton abweichen.
