""Me and my Partner-- the Hohner 64 Chromonica" !!"
I expect my Hohner 64 Chromonica to outlast me!! (I'm 87). If it doesn't, I'll be certain that I'd buy another Hohner 64 Chromonica replacement --- no other, I assure you!! I like the way it responds to my particular antics -- we play together - - nothing else matters when expressing our mutual responses -- they seem to build on each other -- and VOILA!! Music!!
The Hohner 64 Chromonica is the cadiliac of the harmonica family - in other words--"The Tops!! I've been the proud owner of one for many years (I'm 87 and have been playin' the harp since I was a young'un}. When I graduated to the chromatic instrument (self-taught) -- the fuller joy of melodic expression was experienced!! The sounds, the range, the flexibility to express uniqueness in my renditions -- makes it a prized possession!!
I record some of my efforts -- using my iMac and CD-burning features -- and get very good results!! Not professional -- but ample! I get various compliments from time to time -- but the major reason is not mine, alone -- but to the Hohner 64 Chromonica that is my constant companion!! Thank you, Hohner -- from me and my Chromonica!!
The Hohner 64 is a perfect "stand alone" instrument. The only accessory needed -- is the player!!
Ease of Use
The harmonica is one of the easiest instruments to generate unique sounds -- limited only by the players' breath and breath-control and the players' inventive "holds" and personal styling-- aside from microphones and amplifiers!
Hohner deserves much credit in building and maintaining decades of leadership in producing top-of-the-line instruments. It is obviously tops in portability for "on the road" events -- and for just about any event or instant that may present itself - (I've played "taps", solo, on occasion, "Oh! Promise Me" at weddings, etc.)
In many respects the Hohner 64 Chromonica , to me is priceless!! There are a couple of other producers of chromatic harmonicas but they don't come close to the overall character of the Hohner 64 Chromonica !!
I have never had the occasion to contact the company or any reps -- but have always felt that they would be "top-of-the-line" in that aspect, too!! The need for repair or info has never required "professional" assistance --- I've been able to clean, make minor adjustments and minor upkeep chores on my own very effectively.
The Wow Factor
The quality features of the Hohner 64 Chromonica are complete in every regard - appearance, feel, construction details, brightness of tone, response to lever-actions!! All important things that we harmonica buffs would want -- are provided for in the specs of the Hohner 64 Chromonica!!
Lover of music.
