Hungarian dorombs, produced by one of the most famous masters of the jew's harps Zoltan Szilagyi, popular all over the world thanks to the variety of models, mass manufacturing and affordable prices. Externally, the doromby look pretty low-attention is focused only on the audio part and manufacturability.
Szilagyi's instruments has significant variations in build quality - you can come across as perfect copies, and mediocre. Most models are manufactured in a variety of shades (some cover more octaves), while the pitch is specified in several different jew's harps, randomly chosen, ways, including the length of the Reed and Dec; frames dimensions with the same name may differ at times. With the seeming diversity most of the Szilagyi instruments differs only by frame form - they use the same reeds. All this together leads to a complete lack of clarity - different exemplars of one model may sound differently, and different models may be the same.
In addition, the majority of dorombs has thin enough frame and require very accurate handling. It deters many beginners, especially when there are no teachers, able to show just a few simple points that separates the correct way to deter improper. many even go into the category of experienced players, accustomed to keep vargan rude and can no longer learn is much more complex than immediately making correctly).
