Anyone know of a good VST for a JEWS HARP?

I cobbled one together using some samples I found and a VST that lets me map to these samples, but its pretty limited.

I used it in a video I posted on YOUTUBE called "AMERICAN RIDE PARODY" by BILLYRAYBAND. But I would like to improve the JEWS HARP part as its used quite a lot in the original Toby Keith version. I did use Mixcraft VSTS for drums, violo, and an accordion.

I found a plugin, but it doesn't seem to work. Your best strategy might be to just use a microphone and record one.

Do a Google search for Dr. Tikov Jew Harp VST, it's free. It's got about 50 some odd samples of the thing, but I find a real Jews Harp better as far as sounding 'real'. Jews / Jaw harps are one note however, so the VST is kinda nice as you can play a keyboard and get more than one note. Chords even.
The real thing is super easy to play and doesn't cost much.

Jew's harps are not just one note, but anyway, yes I have that one and it's good IMO. You can also select many different patches (although they are oddly just numbers, not named) for various other sounds, some more similar to a Jew's harp than others.

There are a few pay plugins, though I don't know how good they are.
