Russian Vargans → Vargan OS1044 "Perm"
Archived model (?)
Jaw harp with small gaps, high sensitivity and dense timbre that, with the frame shape and size, fully meets the average statistical idea of what this instrument should be. The purity of sound, appreciated by the aesthetes, varies from one exemplar to another, and in the most cases is sacrificed to a joyous hoarse, especially with outwards strokes. Reed is quite convenient in any style, there are exemplars with ideal mechanics. On average, the instrument is pretty lively and pleasant for a percussion-expressive play.
