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 from

F.A. Schluetter from Zella-Mehlis, Thueringen, Germany

F.A. 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 this.

Indian Jewsharps
The right one is from Rajasthan and decorated at the Front. The left one is from South-India.

Both are wonderfull for Percussion.

The Rajastan Jewsharp, called Moorjang, is a bit deeper in sound, made of a softer Steel.
The South-Indian Jewsharp, called Moorsing is tuned higher and a very typical indian Jewsharp.
The classical South-Indian Music is using the Moorsing for Percussion Purposes.
