The Hering Deluxe Chromatic 64 is a harmonica that is really meant to be played by serious musicians. It has a 4-octave range, which an expert can use to create interesting special effects, or to play classic pieces in a slower style with ease. It is chrome plated, which is supposed to give it more durability, as well as a better look. However, even though this harmonica looks good and can sound good, it does have a reputation for needing frequent repairs. Many experts don't think that the risk is worth the cost. So, it tends to be the choice of beginners who don't mind spending a little money to get a harmonica that looks professional.
