Hohner 64 Chromonica 280C Harmonica - Key of C

The 64 Chromonica is preferred by professionals and semi-professionals for it's excellent reed response and bright tone over all four octaves. It features an extra octave in the lower register (below middle C)

When it came on the market in 1938, the 64 Chromonica was the first chromatic to boast a range of over four octaves. Thanks to the additional bottom octave, it took the tonal range of the harmonica into registers where it had never before been heard, as well as brought many pieces from the classical repertoire within the reach of the instrument. It also enabled the eerie, deep-toned growl and full chords of amplified chromatic harp which swiftly became an integral part of the blues tradition, a sound which lives on to this day. It defined the industry standard for professional quality 4 octave chromatics and has gone on to inspire generations of players in blues, soul, jazz and classical music. Whether you play alone or in a band, if you’re looking for a real workhorse 64 chromatic it’s still your best bet.
