Hohner Diatonic Harmonicas
For 150 years, Hohner's diatonic harmonicas set the industry standard through high quality construction, excellent response and unsurpassed tone. Often called Blues Harps, they remain a fixture in blues, rock, country, folk, and many other styles of music. Traditional Richter tuning and undivided air channels allow for techniques such as bending and overblowing reeds, creating the signature wailing sound typical of the harmonica.
Hohner, the world's largest manufacturer of harmonicas, has proudly maintained a tradition of high quality instrument making. Hohner's mission is to offer a diverse range of models designed to meet the needs of every musician in today's musical climate.
Tireless investment in research and development, combined with knowledge that has been cultivated for decades, insures high quality standards--both now and in the future. By working in close co-operation with the most renowned professional harmonica players, we ensure that Hohner instruments remain on the cutting edge of the industry. Hohner's up-to-date manufacturing process uses special alloys and precise stamping and milling tools to produce reeds of optimal sound quality, responsiveness and longevity.
Hohner's long standing dedication to harmonica excellence has inspired a loyal following among players from all walks of life; young and old, amateur and professional.
