Hohner 7538 Toots Mellow Tone Harmonica

Hohner pays tribute to harp legend Toots Thielemans with the Mellow Tone harmonica. Thin reed plates give it a distinctly warm sound.
Not many artists could handle the chromatic harmonica as incredibly well as Jean-Baptiste Frderic Isidor, Baron Thielemans, better known as Toots Thielemans. He was the most iconic Jazz harmonica player of the 20th century and played with artists like Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and Jaco Pastorius. He served as a great influence to many others, including John Lennon.

To honor this Jazz legend with only one instrument would have not done him justice, which is why Hohner teamed up with him and designed two instruments to his specifications. The Toots Mellow Tone is the first of the two, with short slot reeds and thin reed plates for a rich, warm sound perfect for ballads.
