A large, accurately made jaw harp with an interesting design, moderately low, deep sound and a long, light tongue. For producing a sound, a minimum efforts is required - even weakest touch give a good result. The timbre is extremely beautiful - harmonious and saturated; sustain time is very long even by the standards of the bass harps. But the knee of the tongue is very long and does not support complex stroke sequences without the addition of extraneous sounds, especially in a backward direction - and with increasing frequency and unevenness of the beats a constant buzz is arising.

A very interesting combination of jews harp properties, convenient and easy when using one-way strokes. With precise control and a small amplitude, you can add complexity.
