Save your money and buy a Snoopy Jawharp.

Even if I were to bend mine in a vice the twanger would hit the edge because it is off center.

Without modification (a vice?), this jaw harp cannot be played.

I hope this helps those having trouble:
My harp was nearly silent no matter how hard I tried to get a nice sound out of it. I played one as a kid so I knew how it was supposed to work and sound.
It turns out that the gap between the prongs was way too wide. I put the harp in a vice and squeezed it down so that the tongue (twanger) had just enough room to vibrate without hitting the arms/prongs (rougly a 1mm gap on either side). Now it sounds really great. If yours is quiet, maybe give this a try before throwing it away - good luck!

I was interested in purchasing a second jaw-harp as a gift. The one I own was purchased elsewhere and has been very entertaining and even useful as an ice-breaker. The jaw-harp advertised by Musical Toys (shipped and sold by XUMP Science Toys) was however of poor quality and did not work as well as the one I currently play. I returned this particular jaw-harp and will look elsewhere for a higher quality instrument.

I recently bought this item and it does not work. It looks nice, but doesn't play at all. I do not recommend this product to anyone.

I bought 2 of these as gifts and neither one worked out of the box. The design of a jaw harp should leave very little space between the tongue and the arms of the frame. These harps had loads of room and the tongue was off center, producing no sound even when played properly. I had to use a hammer to bend the arms closer together, which ultimately made it functional after bending the tongue to the center, but even then the space between the tongue and arms increased as you move away from the end which hampers sound quality. It would be very difficult and require more tools than I have to make either one of these harps resemble the example on the box. It shouldn't be that difficult to produce even a cheap yet functional jaw harp, but it's obvious by the number of similar stories that these manufacturers just don't care that they make junk.

Skip this model. I had better luck with one of the D shaped harps rather than these tear drop shaped ones. I'd recommend looking in that direction.

This is not a jaw harp, though to a new comer it looks like one. As other people said, the gaps are too wide. Even if I were to bend mine in a vice the twanger would hit the edge because it is off center. I called Toysmith (1-800-356-0474) and told nicely that I felt like I had been ripped off, they said they couldn't do anything about it and I suggested that they pull the product from the shelf until they find a design that works. Could you imagine giving this, even as a toy? "Here kid, here is a broken toy. Maybe if I get out my tools and mess around with vices for half an hour it won't be as broken as it used to be." I feel like I got suckered, the picture is taken at an angle so you can't see how wide it is.

The Jaw harp may look good in the picture... but as the brand name suggests it is simply a toy and is not built to work at all. The gap between the tongue and the legs is far to great to produce a sound. I used a vice on mine to attempt in achieving the correct amount of space on either side and I did get a sound out of it. But the sound is too short and takes much more breath than it ever should. You would save more time and pain by just spending a few more dollars for even the Snoopy brand Jaw harp. This was a regret of mine for purchasing this. I will not be getting anything from this brand anymore. You've been warned

Don't buy this jaw harp. Trying to play this jaw harp is like trying to play a piano whose hammers do not strike the strings. When they manufactured this, they apparently did not know that there should not be a huge gap between the tongue and the frame. You would think they might have actually tried playing the prototype before mass producing it.

Without modification (a vice?), this jaw harp cannot be played. I tried using pliers, and it's still pretty much useless.

If you're buying this for a child, expect them to be disappointed when they can't make a sound with it.

Money down the drain.

Most likely you'll receive this product and it will not work. Previously mentioned by R.Register below, YOU WILL NEED TO BEND THIS PIECE in a vice until the "twanger" has about 1mm of room to vibrate between the two ends. When adjusted correctly, and it's not hard to do, the harp seems to work fine.
