Green pasture, blue skies and and snowcapped mountain peaks. Traditional German Austrian folk music is inseparably associated with these idyllic Alpine landscapes. The harmonicas of our Tremolo Series were made for musical journeys such as these. For over 150 years, they have reflected their origins and provoked a musical backdrop to everyday life for millions of people – in the home, out walking in the countryside or around the campfire. Their unique sound is created by using two reeds for each note, tuned very slightly apart to create an uplifting, gently pulsating tremolo effect, which is perfect for folk music.
THE TREMOLO ARMADA
If you really want to go the whole hog, you sometimes need a little bit more. Our Sextuple Kreuzwender, the world’s largest tremolo harmonica, comprises a set of six instruments in all the most popular keys, held together like a paddlewheel by six-pointed star shaped spindle grips at the ends, so the player can rotate the entire instrument to switch keys, while holding it in both hands. Whether you play in a harmonica ensemble or on your own, with this amazing HOHNER exclusive you can almost feel the cool mountain water flowing around your toes. Great for all traditional folk music styles.
