Ask a question about this product

Unique Item!

Ghost Catcher (stringed) is a traditional instrument of Kuzhebar people
(South Siberia). It is a kind of mouth bow, but unlike other mouth bows
it has little fingerboard and 2 strings, so it is possible to play melodies
on it strumming the strings by right hand, and pressing the strings to the
fingerboard by left hand. It is also possible to play on it with a stick,
this technique reminds the berimbao playing. The instrument should be
placed in front of the mouth and modulated like a jaw harp. We sell
improved version of the ghost catcher which we modified and developed
ourselves.
Shipped with a small stick.

Ghost Catcher is named so because it was used by shamans in Siberia

for ritual reasons. They believed that the sound of this instrument have
a special influence to the insects and ghosts. They was trying to cooperate
with the "collective consciousness" of ghosts or insects because people
can do many things with their help which they can't do alone. They tell
that this is "quiet instrument, because originally it was supposed to be
played not for people but for ghosts and insects".
They also used it to "hunt" on ghosts. Kuzhebar people used to believe
that they need to eat special kind of ghosts, because human body
needs it. They use to classify those ghosts to 3 categories by edibility:
edible, inedible (poor) and poisonous. Only strongest shamans was
able to hunt to "poisonous ghosts".

It's an amazing instrument. It looks simple but you've got many possibilities, you can play with your fingers, a stick, a mediator and use your mouth
for modulate the sound. It's amoder kind of mouthbow. Nicolas
