270BX-A Super Chromonica Harp Key Of A Boxed Package Harmonica

Chromatic Harmonicas

These top of the line professional instruments are entirely hand built and represent the pinnacle of HOHNER craftmanship. The components are perfectly matched and each instrument is individually set up to ensure optimal airtightness and accuracy of tuning. Thicker reed plates ensure remarkably full, rich tone.

Chromonica Line

When Hohner introduced the first ever 10 hole slide chromatic harmonica in 1912, they could not have foreseen how successful the concept would be. The design was awarded a US patent in 1928 and has been marketed under the name Chromonica since 1938. Thanks to continual upgrades, the Chromonica series not only remains the world's best seliing chromatic harmonica, but is also the basis for all subsequent developments in this field, one of the timeless Hohner inventions which have defined the harmonica history of the past hundred years.
