Hohner Bass 78 Harmonica

Ready to be the low-end anchor in a harmonica ensemble, the Hohner Bass 78 harmonica reaches down to E2 with a robust tonality and projection.
The Bass 78 was developed in close cooperation with leading international players to create a high end professional instrument, combining unprecedented performance and ease of playability with the finest Hohner quality.

In almost all music, the bass is the bottom line, the anchor that holds the whole thing together. This is just as true for harmonica ensembles as any other line-up. It’s not a simple matter to build a reed instrument that can respond with the speed and volume which group performance demands, especially in the low register down to E2, but Hohner professional Bass harmonicas are made to do just that.

They feature a hinged two part construction and each channel contains two reeds, tuned one octave apart, giving a remarkably rich and powerful sound. Here too, the lower reed of each pair is located on the inner rows to ensure balanced microphoning and accentuate the bass. As with the Chord 48, Hohner Bass harmonicas have been redesigned to optimize volume, handling and maintenance. The mouthpiece is integrated into the acrylic comb construction for unparalleled airtightness and the full screw together assembly ensures ease of maintenance. The Bass 78 is the larger of the two bass models, with a range of E2 - C5, perfect for the ambitious bass player in any type of harmonica ensemble.
