Hohner Chrometta 14 Hole Harmonica

Hohner Chrometta 14 Hole Harmonica

Hohner Chrometta 14 Hole Harmonica is similar to the Chrometta 10 in that it adds two extra bass holes to the standard 12-hole range. Chromatic Harmonicas enable the player to perform music in all keys on one instrument. Actually, they consist of two diatonic harmonicas in one, tuned a semitone apart - for example in C and C#. The slide button is pushed in to switch the airflow from one to the other, thus raising the pitch of each note by a semitone. The largest of the Chrometta series, this model has the same tonal range as a violin, making it possible to play many classical pieces which require a greater range than that of the 3-octave chromatic.

Hohner Chrometta 14 Hole Harmonica is similar to the Chrometta 10 in that it adds two extra bass holes to the standard 12-hole range.

Chromatic Harmonicas enable the player to perform music in all keys on one instrument. Actually, they consist of two diatonic harmonicas in one, tuned a semitone apart - for example in C and C#. The slide button is pushed in to switch the airflow from one to the other, thus raising the pitch of each note by a semitone.
 
By combining these two scales, all 12 notes of the chromatic scale are available (some of them twice), which opens up a wealth of new musical options to the player. Chromatic harmonicas can easily be distinguished from other harmonica models by the slide button on the right-hand side. They are most commonly heard in classical music and jazz but are also often used in blues, folk music, and pop. All chromatic harmonicas feature tempered tuning.
 
The Chrometta is the ideal entry model for those approaching the chromatic harmonica for the first time. This inexpensive series boasts robust construction and a specially formed mouthpiece to facilitate single note playing. Available in four different sizes.
