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!

Because of the two discouraging reviews for the jaw-harp that are here I thought I should share my own experience with learning the jaw harp and how much fun it has been to be able to play it.

I got my jaw harp several years ago as a Christmas present and just gave my mom a look like "What is this supposed to do?" Of course, neither of us, or my brother and dad, could play it, but we could hear the vibrations of the jaw harp resonating in our heads. So for about 3 maybe 4 months I practiced and practiced and still couldn't get any audible sound out of it. So I put it somewhere for later, probably a box and soon lost it.

About a year later going through old belongings and deciding what to throw away I came across my jaw harp and decided to give it another go. And that time it sounded different. So I run into the other room and get someone to confirm that it is making actual noise instead of me just hearing things in my head. And it really was making sound! After that I would carry it around everywhere both as something to do when bored and as an ice-breaker when I'm meeting people (this has been very useful in college).

During high school I finally decided that there has to be more to do with a jaw harp than just these basic sounds I can produce. So I looked up the jaw harp online and tried to find something else to do. I then discovered that you can say the vowels a-e-i-o-u, this IS NOT just talking out the vowels while playing. I don't know exactly how it works but if you can play the jaw harp already it is the easiest thing to learn, just don't talk! From there you can start to talk, just watch out for words that make your tongue move toward the metal reed (words with "s" in them especially).

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.

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

Very nice, especially at this price!

I bought three of these, it looked so easy on youtube to use I thought my 4 and 5 year old could do it, they love music. It's a cheap and sturdy instrument so I went for it. This is an easy instrument to use, but not easy enough for the kids. But they still love playing with it and I can play it for them. I am surprised by the rich history of this instrument, but I just love the noise it makes, there is just something about that noise you just gotta have one lol I was just surfing videos so the kids could hear and see different instruments being played and after seeing the cost I couldn't resist.

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]
