The robustly constructed and reasonably priced models of the Chrometta series are the perfect starting point for learning chromatic harmonica. Larger channel openings in combination with the projecting mouthpiece ensure great response and make it easier for the beginning player to hit single notes accurately.

The Chrometta was first released in 1956 and introduced the concept of a divided slide, integrated into the comb/mouthpiece unit, which is still used in this model today. This feature makes the harmonica very service-friendly and is resistant against moisture as well as gliding easily on the lips.

Chrometta 12

Make It Look Easy

Available in 8, 10, 12, or 14 hole versions, this harmonica is a great introduction to the art of chromatic playing.  Its user friendly design includes an enclosed mouthpiece and slide mechanism which allows you to blow straight at the reed plates, creating a tone that is clear and consistent with strong projection.  The enclosed cover design insures a rich, full resonance.

Three complete octaves from C4 up to C7 provide a note range to play most classical works.
