Product Description

This instrument is known by many names. Most commonly it is referred to as a Jews Harp. Other terms used include Jaw Harp and Juice Harp. The Juice Harp is played by holding the instrument between the teeth and or lips. You then pluck the metal reed with your finger. This simple instrument gives you an amazing range of tones and pitches just by varying your mouth shape and degree of plucking. Many of us were first exposed to this instrument by the most famous of all Juice Harp Players, Snoopy! Snoopy even has his own signature model of Juice Harp.

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!

The Snoopy harps are by far the best commercially-made harps, both for sound quality and durability. They beat the dime-store dipped-in-paint ones by a long shot, though those do tend to have a wider selection in tone.

If you're new to harping, buy one of these as your first harp, but once you get familiar with it, consider one of the hand-made ones by Bill Gohring [...] they come pre-tuned to whatever you request, and I've had mine now for almost 10 years and it's never broken. Even the Snoopy harp gave up the ghost after 2-3 (but, hey, $6!). Also, ask him if he still has the bamboo harps -- they're a definite challenge to play, but what fun!

You'll have quite a time making any noise with this Jaw Harp. The tongue (reed) is too thick, so you don't really get any vibration out of it. It looks like a manufacturer slapped it together without taking the time to see if it's playable. I bought it for my kids so that they wouldn't keep asking to play mine. I had to throw it away and buy a proper one because it just doesn't play.

This was my first jaw harp to purchase and has been working just fine for a few years now.

Very nice, especially at this price!

The instrument was consistent with the same instrument I bought a few years back. It is off centered, and difficult to use properly, as the metal bangs agasinst itself, discouraging proper sound emanations. In short dissappointing, and not very useful or entertaining.

This review should be a string of unprintable reviews but I am being polite. The even slightest mis-stroke ruins any attempt to make it properly tone.

Pros: Easy to play, low priced, fun toy for very intermittent use

Cons: the part you flick with your forefinger is pretty heavy and it feels heavy on your teeth. I played it a little throughout the day and front teeth feel weird today, like I am pressing on them. I'll not play this instrument often. It's sort of scary to play. I'm not talking about my teeth being hit by the vibration mechanism, I'm talking about how my teeth feel after having played the instrument according to the direction. I can't imagine this one being professional grade.Hard on the teeth: the vibration apparatus is thick and makes for playing "heavy" and might damage your teeth with chronic playing.

Next time: Next time I'll but Note to producer: It'd be neat if the box it came in was a tin one. That's be good for holding coins, bandages or making a portable sewing kit or even a survial kit [all thought it wouldn't be water proof]

I got mine and it didn't work at first. I never messed with these before so I thought I was doing something wrong. I looked at it and thought "the middle thing/tongue seems like it should be centered between the two outer rods". I couldn't find anything on the internet about adjusting these so I just went ahead and slightly bent the middle prong little by little until it lined up with the outer pegs. It worked fine after that and was easy to learn.

You have to put it up against your front teeth with your tongue and lips away from the middle prong. Wrap your lips over the outer pegs as much as you can without touching the middle prong,you will have to move it around a bit to get the best loudest sound. Slightly opening your moth and closing it will make different notes. Then pick away. When you breathe in and out through your mouth it creates a louder different tone.

For the price I would say get it,especially if its your first. It only takes a few minutes to adjust it.

Note:If you don't hold it against your teeth hard enough it will rattle your teeth and hurt a little. Don't push it hard against your teeth but also don't press too soft. Just enough to keep it in place and prevent it from rattling. My teeth felt a little weird after doing this for a while,it vibrates them a little. I don't think it damaged them but your teeth might have to get used to the vibrating.
