Overview

The Hohner 255/48 Chrometta 12 Harmonica has smooth, rounded covers, large, accessible mouthpiece openings and a beautiful tone make this model ideal for both beginning harmonica players as well as advanced harmonica players.

The Hohner 255/48 Chrometta 12 has a 4 octave chromatic range and is equipped with wind saving valves and a moisture proof comb. 12 holes, 48 reeds.

The Hohner 255/48 Chrometta 12 is a chromatic harmonica designed to play every complete scale in any key. You can play major, minor, pentatonic, or blues scales all on one harmonica. Additionally, all accidental notes are available at any time for any situation.

Each single hole contains four reeds; two natural notes and two chromatic notes. The reeds for the chromatic notes are enabled by pushing a slide button on the side of the harmonica. Most chromatics are solo tuned, which means each group of four single holes covers a complete octave.

This design offers a wealth of new musical options to the player. Most commonly chromatic harmonicas are heard within the classical and jazz scenes, but often these harmonicas are used for blues, folk, rock and pop as well.

Comments about Hohner Chrometta 12 Harmonica:

I always wanted to try my hand at chromatic harmonica but couldn't afford a playable one. I heard some good recordings with the Chrometta 12 on YouTube so I decided to buy it. The ease of playing is inconsistant as some notes both blown and drawn play easily and sound great. Other's not so much... reeds are tight especially on the high end leading to squeaks and difficult playing with iffy results. I'm hoping the tight reeds loosen up. It has gotten better the more I play it but it's still annoying and disruptive to playing well. The slide works smoothly and the travel length some have complained about is not an issue for me. All in all, not bad for the price but could use much better quality control
