Exquisite handicraft

Handcrafted from the boss himself:

Our senior Franz Wimmer shows you
the different necessary working steps
which he has learned in his youth,
as last apprentice of his guild.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To start with we only have the raw material,
which we buy depending on weight asstructured steel shape rolled into string,

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here you can see the different stages of production
of our handcrafted Jew's harps.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After cross-cutting the steel wire which is in a prism form
the arms are formed first.....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...with practised hand the first half of the middle is formed.

Our senior partner is very happy to show you the production process
of Jew's Harps in our work shop.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then the second half is formed…

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once an appropriate amount
has been formed that way....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

....the so-called frames are put into the "scouring barrel"
where they are scoured with wood shavings

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

....as you can see in this picture.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After pressing in the hardened feathers,
the spaces between feather and side are checked once more for the last time.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our Jew's Harp is finished!
Traditional handicraft at its best!
