Description
One audio cassette. The Jew's Harp, one of world's oldest instruments and a lamellaphone-type of instrument, has gone by several names, and appears in several countries. In England (and later the United States), the instrument -- which is held in the teeth and plucked with one's fingers -- was associated with Jewish culture, although there is no historical association between the two. Other names for the hand-held instrument include gewgaw, mouth drum, jaw harp, and juice harp.
