A large, bass jaw harp with a brutal, anti-glamorous look with a sound that fully corresponds to the exterior. As the frame has lot of tool traces, dents and scratches, but performs its main task well, and the sound contains many irregularities, but it surely has a lot of it. The timbre is subdued, with a slightly gurgling coloring. The sensitivity is little above average, with a simple and understandable dependence of loudness on impact strength. The mechanics are good, the knee of the tongue does not hang out, it behaves clearly and predictably, and, being quite tough and heavy, shakes the head in the most gentle way. The difference between the models VB1073, VB1074, VB1075, VB1076 - in the length of the reed and, respectively, in the sound pitch and relative rigidity (listed in order of increasing frequency).
