Categories: , Tags: , , , , ,


The jaw harp is considered to be one of the oldest musical instruments in the world, originating in Asia. Despite its common English name, it has no particular connection with Jews or Judaism.

It is played by holding it to your mouth and striking the vibrating “tongue.” Our Jaw Harp comes packaged with playing instructions and a brief history. The Jaw Harp has become an iconic instrument in Appalachian culture where it is played to this day.
