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.

decoupled Davul

In the traditional models, both heads are braced together. That means you cannot span one side independently of the other.
To get around this problem, we have developed a new tensioning construction where each side can be tensioned separately.

The cord is not pulled to the other side of the skin, but is fixed to points in the body. This now makes it possible to tune each side to a specific tone and also both tones of the Davul to each other. The keynote of one side still depends on the diameter and the choice of head. We only offer this system for the larger Davul from 48 cm.

nose flute

An extraordinary flute, traditional from Indonesia.
You don't blow this flute with the mouth but with the nose.
Even you play the notes not with fingers, but by changing the opening of the mouth like at the jew-harp.

These nose-flutes are made from pine-wood and finished with linseed.

How to play:
You keep the nose-flute in front of your face, that the round hole is under your nose and the half-moon hole in front of your mouth.
The nose blows in to the hole and the mouth is opened on the half-moon hole.
With changing of the opening of the mouth you can play different notes.
