Khakassian Temir-Khomys “Wolf Fang” is Jaw harp with a good balance of all the basic qualities of the average level – neither high nor low; neither small nor large; neither deaf nor over-saturated; neither slow, nor fast; neither cheap, nor expensive. It can be hard drived, and, in some degree, used to catch some overtone and dynamic shades in a accurate playing. It is simple and friendly in use. Reed hardness is closer to soft side, reducing efforts amount for producing sound, but stability and cleanness is reduced, limiting complex stroke sequences.
