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. Its making process is a precise, delicate one that demands experienced craftsmanship.

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. Yet we recommend to use mainly forward strokes.

The sound of a Vietnamese jew’s harp is very bright. A pretty accessible instrument to beginners, it will also give full satisfaction to advanced musicians who seek for high quality instruments.

super instrument, bonne qualité sonore et facile d'utilisation cependant après quelques mois la lamelle de métal se déplace et le son est moins joli et moins fort

    c'est la guimbarde parfaite pour commencer, on peut jouer juste en la posant sur les lévres et posséde une trés belle tonalité assez sonore.l'extrémiter allongé de la lamelle facilite la frappe.Si vous êtes débutant comme moi c'est à mon avis un des meilleurs choix!

      Cette guimbarde est superbe, esthétiquement et musicalement, elle produit un son trés agréable et génère une vibration longue qui permet de faire varier les sons sur une seul frappe.
      Je possède aussi la guimbarde H'mong basse ( Vietnam) et j'aime beaucoup sa sonorité plus grave, elle permet de s'accorder sur des morceaux piano ( Squiban, Tiersen...), un régale.
