The Hohner 1493/32 C Echo Harmonica has octave tuning (the upper row of 16 holes is tuned one octave below the lower row of 16). When the 2 rows are played at the same time this creates an effect of 2 harmonicas simultaneously playing the same melody. This enables a single player to achieve a stronger, full-bodied sound not possible while playing a standard diatonic harmonica.
Hohner Echo harmonicas offer comfortable curved mouthpieces with traditional wood combs. The chromeplated covers have turned- in ends for extra style and sound. Key of C.

Comments about Hohner 1493/32 C Echo Harmonica:
this model is only the second one that i have ever put to lips... (my echo is about 50 years old though)... and i have been hooked since that moment.. an incredible piece of metal and wood. it has a crisp and full bodied sound that few other harmonicas offer for the price... i have only been playing with harmonicas for 2 years now and have improved so much in that time that i have even been allowed to sit in on local bands jam sessions... all due to this echo... it gives out a full rich sound that makes any blues riff fatter... you can get real gritty as well as stay clean and light if you desire... when paired with a motivated player there is no stopping them... the echo has made me desire to be a better musician and has helped me accel in the music i enjoy... i now own over 3 dozen harps of different manufacture and eras... some old and some new... some expensive and others cheap, but i always return to my echo when i want to play music that "speaks" to the listener and have them stop and listen to my music... and guitarists i meet really want to jam further with me... a real plus this instrument has expanded my talents and ability and i have increased in my experience level twentyfold... because it makes you desire to be a better player when you realize the potential is in you with this instrument. it has a long lasting wooden frame and body, and a classic style to it and the strong metal reeds make this a very dependable and a long term friend that i will keep with me forever. 5 stars to hohner
