The Hohner Toots Hard Bopper is a tribute to Jean “Toots” Thielemans, a famous jazz harmonica player known for playing chromatic harmonicas. It was designed with collaboration from Toots himself. It features reed profiles and reed plates that are designed to increase the longevity of the reeds and make this harmonica stand the test of time. The short slide action makes this an easy chromatic harmonica to play for anyone who is experienced with this type of mouth harp. The Toots Hard Bopper produces an aggressive sound that is perfect for playing Jazz tunes like Toots for playing the blues.
