The most popular chromatic harmonica by leading harmonica musicians - Available in several keys - C and G are the most popular.
Chromatic harps are for musicians who want to expand their range of harmonica playing to the top level. The Super Chomonica by Hohner features a exacting designed slide button that enhances the full range of your harmonica. The Super Chromatic 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 there are 3 octaves. The slide button adds the "black keys" of the piano, by changing the full tones to half steps.
The Hohner 270 Super Chromonica will give you the right note. As with any chomatic harp a slide switch allows a wider range up to 3 octaves. With this feature you can play in any key, with any accompaniment, and even solo over 3 octaves, and even change keys. And you can read music with this harp. You will find the best musicians using chromatic harmonicas. Use the Hohner 270 Super Chromonica 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 Chromonica. Hohner builds the Super Chromonica with a wood body for a warm tone that covers 3 complete octaves.
The Hohner Super Chromonica is a first choice for the leading harmonica musicians. It has a 3-octave chromatic range beginning at middle C. The chromatic harmonica's 48 reeds are fitted with special wind-saving valves. The precision-crafted Hohner pearwood comb is optimized for superior reed response over its complete range, from the mellow low octave to the bright and clear top octave.
