Hohner Chrometta 12 255 Chromatic Harmonica

The Chrometta 12 is a perfect starter Chromatic instrument. Available in the key of C or G

Chromatic harps are for musicians who want to expand their range of harmonica playing to the top level. The Chrometta 12 by Hohner features a exacting designed slide button that enhances the full range of your harmonica. This allows you to use the same harmonica for almost every music situation. Because Chromatic harps are designed to play every complete scale in any key, they offer a wealth of music options for the player. In short, you can jam with any of them!

With a Chromatic Harmonica, all accidental notes (sharps and flats) are immediately available by pushing in the slide button. Each single hole contains four reeds; two natural tones and two chromatic tones are enabled by pushing in the slide button on the side of the harp. Most chromatics are solo tuned, meaning each group of 4 holes completes one octave (inhale for one note, exhale for another). With 12 holes as in the Chrometta 12 there are 3 octaves. The slide button adds the "black keys" of the piano, by changing the full tones to half steps

The Hohner 255 Chrometta 12 will give you the right note. As with any chromatic harp a slide switch allows you access to most every scale. With this feature you can play in any key, with any accompaniment, and even solo and even change keys. And you can read music with this harp. You will find the best musicians using chromatic harmonicas. Use the Hohner 255 to learn music and soon you will be able to lay it down like Toots Thielemans or the great Larry Adler. Any style or mood you need, major, minor, blues, or bebop, is available on the chromatic Hohner harp.

The Hohner Chrometta 12 is a first choice for the beginning harmonica musicians. It has a 3 octave chromatic range, a contoured body curved at the ends to fit in your hand, and the holes are little larger so it is easier to play. The chromatic harmonica's has 48 reeds. The precision-crafted Hohner is optimized for superior reed response over its complete range, from the mellow low octave to the bright and clear top octave.

Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.
