Thread Name: Any jews harp players out there? :-)
Subject: RE: Any jews harp players out there? :-)
Looking for more jewsharps. The pair I had which were good to play I managed to snap the triggers off both. I'm left with a specimen which looks like something made by a blacksmith![ Found in an antique shop]. The amount of puff you need [and you need a surprising amount--] makes it a bit of a trial. BTW--Lindsay Porteous, the big fella from Culross, Fife, who made my bodhrans, was at one stage, I believe, UK Jewsharp champion. [Don't ask me where or when the contest was held!!}
