The Hohner Chrometta is a chromatic harmonica with a 3-octave range. It has a moisture-proof comb, and its valves are designed to reduce the air required to play. So, it's easy to blast out the notes that you want. The best part about the Hohner Chrometta, also known as the 253, is that you can play any scales that you want on it. So, it's like having several harmonicas rolled into one. Both the price and the design make this a good chromatic harmonica for anyone that is just transitioning from diatonics to chromatics. It has a mellow sound and the perfect layout for beginners who want to play single notes.
