Welcome to the
Jew's Harp Guild
We are an organization dedicated to
preserving the history and art of this, and other, ancient, unique, or culturally
significant acoustic instruments.
Towards that end, we are developing a pictorial archive and
database of these unique instruments. In the months and years ahead we hope to create the
most comprehensive archive of this kind in the world.
We hope you will join us in this effort and send
us pictures, audio clips and information of your important finds.
Pictorial Archive records have the following information:
||Name of item if known
||Year made if known
||Country of Origin
||Maker / Manufacturer
||Material (ie, brass, steel)
Click on the record number to see the picture
|owner's comments on item
||checked if hand made
||checked if machine made
- A few records are missing, and some pictures did not scan well enough to enter
- Use your browser to open hyperlinks in a "new window" as we suggest
feature to view the pictures because the records form is a bit slow to reload.
Otherwise use your browser "Back" button to return to the records form after
viewing each picture.
- Information on the record forms is provided by the item owner and is hopefully
correct. Please inform us if you consider any information in error and we will
do our best to research and correct it.
MORE TO COME - Please Check Back!!!
