Hohner Chrometta 12 Hole Harmonica (Key of G)

Hohner Chrometta Harmonica consists 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 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.
