jew's harp

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.

bone flutes

Rather uncommon but similar to the idea of the clay flute, the body of the flute is a hollow bone. Bone flutes have been produced for thousands of years.
Our flutes are made to a large extent from sheep and goat bones. The natural density of each bone produces each flute's unique tone. Rare pieces are made from stag bones. Such pieces are only sometimes available.
Special orders can be taken.
