Harmonica Playing FAQs

Harmonicas: Other Types

Others- Additional types of harmonicas are available for special purposes like harmonica trios, groups, or orchestrals. Most of these are made by the Hohner Company, but other companies may carry some as well. This group includes: double-reed harmonicas (octave and tremolo tuned), bass harmonicas, chord harmonicas, Polyphonias, and miniture 4-hole harmonicas. These harmonicas are not recommended for beginners interested in blues and country playing nor useful for most beginning instructional materials.

Hohner Koch Chromatic (980/40) - An oddly tuned chromatic-diatonic hybrid. Note layout is the same as a standard 10 hole diatonic (commonly referred to as the Richter tuning). Deeper bends are possible on this instrument unlike the typical chromatic. There are no windsaver valves like most chromatics, so airleak is more of an issue. The best of both worlds, or worst... you decide.
