Schwarz Jew's Harp and Harmonica Production

Molln, Oberösterreich , Österreich

In 1679, the Schwarz family in Molln started producing Jew’s harps. Since then, the business has been continuously familiy-owned.

​The Schwarz instrument workshop is the oldest and largest production site of its kind.

In this museum, you can find more than 300-year-old relicts of handicraft in the areas of Jew’s harp, harmonica, and accordion. In the past, only Jew’s harps and musical goods were manufactured.

25 years ago, Karl Schwarz senior started working on the Steirische Harmonika (Styrian accordion). Apart from the production of tuned bells, ocarinas, flexatones, and pan flutes, they have not neglected their roots - the Jew’s harp - and offer, looking back on a 400-year-long tradition, hand-tuned quality Jew’s harps.
