Double, Hmong jew’s harp (Vietnam)

Hmong jew’s harps are made in North Vietnam; they have been played in traditional music for many years.

It consists of a strip of brass in which a thin central blade has been partially cut to produce the appropriate vibration. This making process is a precise, delicate one that demands experienced craftsmanship.

This particular model has a special design with its snake tongue-shaped reed.
The instrument is held gently against the player's lips while his/her other hand plucks the tip of the reed back and forth in a soft movement.

As a double jew’s harp, it is slightly lower pitched than a simple one, but its sound remains very bright. This is an easy instrument to play that gives full satisfaction to both beginners and more advanced musicians who seek for high quality instruments.

Delivered in its natural wooden box
Length: about 4.7 in

NB: not suitable for children under 10

Instrument de qualité sonore appréciable sur une grande tessiture dans les aiguës comme dans les graves. Fourreau en bambou protecteur et joliment habillé de tissu. Il demande à être frotter avec douceur sur la languette de percussion pour un rendu meilleur. Lors d'émission de son aiguës avec la langue proche, attention de ne pas se la pincer.

    Trés bon instrument, avec un son plus grave et plus riche que les simple lamelle.Fourreau en bois trés pratique et protectif.
    attention a ne pas taper trop fort sur l'extremité plus courte de ce type de guimbarde ça peut casser!

      J'aime beaucoup cet intrument, je joue en écoutant des morceaux de piano des albums de Didier Squiban et Yann Tiersen par exemple, c'est trés agréable.
      Sa double lame créer une sonoritée basse qui s'adapte à beaucoup de mélodies.
