Jewsaphone - 21st Century re-make of this classic jews harp amplifier!
A 21st Century re-make of this classic jews harp amplifier!
Originally made in the 1930's the Jewsaphone has become quite a rare and sought after item so I though I'd reinvent it for modern times. The original was made of aluminium and featured a low quality harp permanently affixed on top.
Computer modelled and printed in food-safe plastic using a 3D printer these take over 12 hours to make.
Using the clamping system of wing-nuts it is easy to fix in almost any jaw harp and amplify its sound with the bell.
These stand approx. 18cm high and are supplied without a harp (used in photo for illustration only). The bell is approx 13cm diameter and the top clamp part comes off to allow the easy fixing of the harp.
An extra bonus is that, due to the clamp, you can play against your lips or your teeth.
The bell will be supplied either gold or silver coloured and head clamp colours are black, yellow, blue, red or white. If you have a clamp colour preference tell me when ordering and I'll try to match your wishes. The interior of the bell will be either black, yellow or white.
For folks who want to play several different harps I've now added a version were you get one bell and two head clamps. You can fix your harps onto the head clamps and change over in 5 seconds, pull off one head clamp & harp and put the other one one!
A whole heap of fun and quite the talking point at your next gig!
Great for busking too...
NOTE: for overseas buyers we recommend upgrading to Tracked shipping - see link in left menu.
From time to time I'll be making a few special ones with real brass bells reclaimed from damaged trumpets - please ask / email me if you want to be on that waiting list.
