Chromatic harmonicas

These are "those harmonicas with the button on the side" as a lot of people say.  The "button" activates a slide that gives you sharps and flats, so that theoretically you can play any tune in any key.  This becomes a matter of learning scales and getting familiar with the button/slide in-out patterns.

Play diatonic scales in any key with one harmonica. Hohner's precision-crafted reeds generate great tone to complement your chops. The 270/48 Chromonica has 12 holes, 48 reeds, 5-5/8" long. Comes in base keys (starting note) of A, B, Bb, C, D, E, F, and G.

Hohner 270/48 Chromonica Features:

  • 48 precision-crafted reeds
  • 12 holes
  • 5-5/8" long

This is a great one to start playing chromatic harmonica with - it has one octave less than the "64" models and so is lighter and more compact, plus it just plain sounds great. In old photos of Stevie Wonder you can see him playing this model of harmonica

This is the same model as the one above, it just has an extra lower octave.  The lower octave sounds great for 3rd position blues.


 Hohner 7539 Hard Bopper Chromatic Harmonica C

Hohner #7539 Hard Bopper Chromatic Harmonica, C  

The 12-hole chromatic Hohner #7539 Hard Bopper Chromatic Harmonica was designed and constructed to specifications provided by harmonica legend Toots Thielemans. Toots recommends the Hard Bopper's thicker reedplate for blues or rock. The Hard Bopper harmonica's reed design permits the articulate, fast runs demanded by jazz. The Hohner #7539 Hard Bopper harp features a pearwood comb and chromeplating on both covers and mouthpiece.


  The Hohner 7584 Harmonica's plexiglass body with gold-plated slide assembly and double-thick reedplates provide the player with excellent dynamics and reed response. Special Super 64X design and construction helps to ensure optimum tuning and airflow balance.
