Shipping changes due to current political situation: we still ship generic mail and DHL. Huge delays (+2 month) are possible for overseas destinations because air flights cancelled and parcels travelled by sea. Ground destinations can be slower by pair of weeks. Payments from foreign Visa/MC/JCB cards and paypal are not working - you can still use SWIFT, QIWI, Yandex.Money and private custom transfers (by request).

ZS18 "Renaissance" jews harp with a moderately soft reed and loud, bright sound. Gaps are small and sensitivity is high - lightest touch giving distinctive result without efforts. Mechanic properties are not the best - elbow/knee is soft, moving in separate directions with intensive strikes, adding various vibrations - that player will hear and feel by finger. Reed tip is unfinished and can scratch finger. Randomly it can be weightened with tin, or copper wire. Size, pitch, gaps, volume and other acoustic properties can be considerably different from exemplar to exemplar. The frame is thin and easily squeezed under uncontrolled grip, yielding clanging. Overal character is lively - beginners will have many hours of pleasure playing this jews harp.
