Harmonicas

 

In the 1820’s, a young instrument maker named Christian Friedrich Buschmann created an instrument with metal reeds, which he called "The Aura". This instrument became popular, although it only provided blow notes.

Later on, Matthias Hohner introduced the harmonica to 19th century America, which really began the modern history of the harmonica. The harmonica was cheap and easy to carry, perfect for a country on the move, like America back then. The Hohner company grew quickly, and they ended up manufacturing 20 millions of harmonicas in the 1920's.

 

Loved by beginner musicians as much as by professional players, the Harmonica is a small, reliable, expressive and affordable instrument that you’ll be able to take with you everywhere you go. We have a great selection of Harmonicas from the leading brands such as Hohner, Suzuki, Lee Oskar and Swan at a wide price-range. If this is your first time purchasing one, the best would be for you to get the type of harmonica that best suits your favourite music genre. Diatonic harmonicas are generally great for Blues, Folk, Country and World music. Chromatic harmonicas go well with Classical, Jazz, Singer-songwriter and Pop music. Tremolo and Orchestral harmonicas are used for Folkloric music and Musette. You can still use any harmonica for all music genres, but it's good to keep this in mind as rough guidelines. As an example, Diatonic harmonicas, which are very versatile, can definitely be used to play Jazz, but it will require more advanced knowledge and technique. Chromatic harmonicas would be easier to use if you wanted to play Jazz.

Leading harmonica brand Hohner has a great range of diatonic, chromatic, tremolo and octave harmonicas, as well as special models and limited editions for both beginners and professionals, whatever their music style might be.

 

In order to choose the right Diatonic harmonica, it’s useful to pay attention to the comb’s material and air-tightness. If you think a plastic comb would be best, go for a Lee Oskar or a Suzuki. For a metal comb or a wooden comb, try Hohner or Suzuki. The price might be slightly more elevated, but the quality will be superior as well.

As for Chromatic harmonicas, it might be easier to start with a 12-hole rather than a 10-hole, which can sometimes feel a bit limiting. 14 and 16-hole harmonicas are better suited to advancing players. Depending on how they’re built, Chromatic harmonicas can be as affordable as they can be expensive. We’ve selected the brands that we think have the highest-quality designs at a fair price, as well as a comprehensive range of harmonica models.
