DOES NOT INCULDE NCAS unless ordered separately. This must be purchased with a ncas order, as each one is custom handtied by me.  This string ties and secures the ncas into it's case. For ease, artisans will normally just seal the ncas into its case with a simple piece of folded paper, but no string attachment. This string and bell combination is a simple and minimalistic addition to your ncas that replaces the paper cap.


The string color matches the natural red dye of the mouth harp case, and is tied to two bells at its other end. Traditionally, the opposite end of a ncas string was decorated with beads, bells, or even small paj ntaub trinkets. The Hmong also have specific ways of tying and packing the ncas string when not in use, and these will come pretied/prepacked in the traditional style of the Hmong in Sapa, Vietnam, accompanied by a visual how-to guide.
