With few exceptions, harmonica construction has changed little over the course of the last 100 years. However, they say it’s the exception that proves the rule and Hohner’s CX12 is nothing if not exceptional! Their designers threw all preconceptions about how to construct a chromatic harmonica out of the window when they came up with this award-winning design, which eliminates a separate mouthpiece by integrating it into a one piece housing. The comb and reed plate assembly simply slots into the cover and mouthpiece unit and is secured in place by a powerful steel spring at the back.
The one piece slide can be removed in one easy motion and the instrument can be disassembled and reassembled in seconds without using any tools. This brilliantly simple construction also almost completely eliminates air loss, ensuring that the CX12 is the loudest, most airtight chromatic harmonica on the market. Its unique sound and amazing dynamic range make it ideal for the modern player in rock, pop and jazz. The revolutionary design doesn’t just look and sound great, it’s also incredibly service friendly.
