HOHNER MEISTERKLASSE CHROMATIC C 56

The Hohner Meisterklasse Chromatic C 56-Tone Harmonica is a high-end chromatic harmonica in the key of ‘C’, offering a bright, clear sound with high response.

With a 3.5 Octave note range, it was designed for professional players of classic harmonica music. It will master any score written for the violin. The Meisterklasse produces bright clear sounds with fabulous response from every register. Its construction utilizes a narrow mouthpiece with rounded channel openings, a silent slide mechanism, and an aluminium comb.

The chromatic harmonica was invented by HOHNER more than 100 years ago. As the name suggests, it contains all natural notes plus all sharps and flats, thus enabling chromatic melodies. Basically the chromatic harmonica consists of two harmonicas, one in C and one in C#, separated from one another by the slide, which is operated by the button at the side. When the slide is not used, the instrument is in C major and only the white notes on the piano keyboard are available.

Pressing the slide button brings the 2nd harmonica into play and every note is raised in pitch by one semitone, giving a C# major scale, which contains all notes found on the black keys of the piano as well as a couple of duplications. It‘s thus possible to play in all keys on one instrument.

The chromatic harmonica is used mainly in jazz and classical music, but can also be heard in pop, rock and folk as well as in the blues. It was popularized by artists such as Larry Adler, Toots Thielemans and Stevie Wonder, all of whom play or played HOHNER instruments throughout their careers.
