Jive™ One-Hand Mute
The Jive is a One-Hand Harmonica Mute™ (patent pending).  Each model of the Jive™ Harmonica Mute can be held and controlled along with the harmonica using just one hand!

This design not only creates fantastic tones, the combination is very easy to manipulate. 

The harmonica is held in the conventional manner, sandwiched between the thumb and fore-finger. The Jive is attached to the players thumb using an adjustable strap. The Jive essentially replaces the player’s bottom hand with a responsive resonating sound chamber. When the top hand is opened, sound travels right over the top of the mute.  

Yes, the Jive Harmonica Mute is literally an Over The Top harmonica mute. 

The one hand combination is very easy to control, plus it frees up the second hand for things like using a microphone, playing a second instrument, or passing a hat.

And for the first time, a mute has been designed for slide chromatic harmonicas.  The Jive Chromatic edition includes the same one hand muting function thus allowing continuous access to the chromatic slide selector. 

 

Jive™ vs dBomb™ 

The Jive is designed to be played with one hand, whereas the dBomb requires two hands for variable control. The dBomb responds best with harp key C and lower. The Jive comes in a number of different sizes to cover the full range of models and keys, including slide chromatic harmonicas.

The following response guide was developed by producing distinct effects at holes 1-6 using the listed harmonica keys (Richter). Naturally, each mute will produce some level effect with any harmonica. Consider the following as the designer’s recommendation.

  • dBomb
    • Harp keys LLF-C
      • The mute effect becomes increasingly limited to lower holes when higher keys are used.
  • Jive
    • Hand: All Keys (simply a bottom hand replacement)
    • Treb: C-F
    • Mid: A-C
    • Bass: LF-A
    • Woofer: LLF-G
      • Lower key harps respond well with higher Jive designs but sound more hollow using the recommended model.
      • When higher key harps are combined with lower Jive designs, the mute effect becomes increasingly limited to lower holes.
  • Jive Chromatic
    • Chromatic harps G-C
    • Lucky 13 all keys
      • Accommodates larger size of the Lucky 13 and its extra low end notes.
      • The range and tone of the Jive Chromatic is comparable to the Jive Bass. Richter harps will respond at holes 1-6 in the key of A and lower.
      • The opening of the Jive Chromatic is wider (more oblong) than other Jive models.
  • Jive Hush
    • Chromatic harps G-C
      • Designed with an internal sound diffusing matrix for quiet practicing.
