    The Gun Harp - Should we sample it?

    For the person who has everything - the Gun Harp!



    The Gun Harp is a cross between a rifle and a jaw harp which attaches to a large brass bell.

    Rather than shoot bullets it shoots the soundwaves of a jaw harp.
    You can point it and pluck out a "boing" with pinpoint accuracy. It is said to resemble a mating call for certain species and is also used by snipers on Northern Sounds.

    You can view some more interesting jaw harps at: http://www.claytonbailey.com/jawharp.htm

    Yes, please sample it, because out of pure coincidence I had a dream about writing a gun harp concerto!
