Big jew's harp of Belarusian master Pyatochenko can have low and very low sounding. It is characterised by long sound attenuation, deep and a bit ominous overtones. That's why it ideally suits for using as shamanic jew's harp. The instrument is sensitive to breathing and throat work. One can play it in a slow or medium pace. For a good sounding a precise beat is needed.
The length of the jew's harp doesn't allow a player to squeeze sounding boards, as they are brought together easily and it leads to a touch of sounding boards by a tongue. Big jew's harp by Pyatochenko can be played in both sides.
This jew's harp is suitable for those, who already knows the instrument, because it is ruther complicated for a beginner. The jew's harp is made of steel and has a soft type of hardness.
