Where can I get a high quality Jews Harp?
I know how difficult it is to get a high quality khomus.
So I decided to make a little survey. I wrote to the best Forges
in Molln, Austria, Zella-Melis, Germany, Kekshemet, Hungary and
tried to get a instrument. Also I asked Spiridon for his thoughts
about that matter.
Whenever I find a very good Instrument, I will show
it here. All of the Khomus here are testet and If you want to get
one, - here you can see what is going on.
I do not participate in your orders - its just a service
F.A. Schluetter from Zella-Mehlis,
Schlütter aus Zella-Mehlis was the fastest. 3 Days after
my mail O got a first response. Whow! Congratulations Mr.Schlütter!
Powerfull sound, rich of overtones and very light. Even a good Instrument
for Beginners. That is a very good Instrument I recommend to buy
Lets have a look to Hungary. Here is the shop from
Szylágyi a very good possibility to get a good Khomus.
You should definitly have a look at his online catalogue
smooth and rich of overtones
warm base-sound, rich of overtones
and sharp like a kitchen-knife
Sound, not easy to play because of the length
