A real Yakut khomus is in hand forged steel plus an individual mastery of the craftsman who puts a piece of his own soul into each product. Is it because the voices of these musical instruments seem so mysterious, "unearthly"? The main difference from all other vargans is the increased size of the tongue, which ensures a long and especially loud sound. The Yakut musical instrument khomus cannot be confused with any of the well-known analogs - it has a completely unique, “cracking” timbre.
Even today, a khomus in Yakutia is considered a sacred object - it is both a symbol of national culture and the most important attribute of local religious rites. In former times, the Yakut Vargan was an obligatory assistant of any shaman. It is clear that the masters who are able to create such important ritual objects, held a high position and had a special status. The situation has not changed to this day: khomus is a piece instrument, made in full accordance with folk traditions.
