Overall: Have been playing as an amateur many types of diatonic harmonicas.I like symphonic music and improvisations on different Leitmotiven.Therefore I decided to try a chromatic harmonica and now I am very happy with the decision made.This is a superior sound,enhancing the musical expressivity.But Progress takes time,which is a great interpretative pleasure.

Sound: I received my first 64 chromonica at age sixteen from my dad who played as well as any professional that i have ever heard. Iam sixty-four now. The sixty-four chromonica is compatible with any music style that you wish to play, and sounds good in any acoustic setting. Played with a microphone and a good amplifier it really will surprise you. One other point that I would like to make is that you can play music in other keys rather easily with a little practice even though this harmonica is in the key of c. Feature: The most useful features 0f the 64-chromonica to me is the ease of maintainence. There are no least useful features that I have ever experienced. Ease of Use: This harmonica is built for great sound! If you compare the sound of the 64-chromonica with other models and types (including other Hohner models, you will understand what I mean.) The 64-chromonica require little air. Anyone with a keen desire to learn to play the harmonica can teach themselves how to play. All that it takes is patientence and practice. This ia a professional instrument. It can be played with any type of band or instrument and it will sound great! Quality: The Hohner 64-chromoica is very well made and extremely reliable. My chromonica has lasted me for ten years now. It is still in perfect tune and looks as nice as the day I bought it. Value: In my opinion the 64-chromonica is under priced. The Wow Factor: I would rate this product a 10 out of 10. Just the sound of this instrument makes you want to play it. Overall: I would not even consider looking for another product! If it were lost or stolen I would replace it with another 64-chrominca.

Sound: 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!! Feature: 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! Quality: 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.) Value: 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 !! Manufacturer Support: 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!! Overall: 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!!

Overall: I bought this harmonica from zZounds a few months ago and just love it. It plays beautifully, feels nice when you hold it and has a bright tone in the higher register which I like. I haven't played chromatic for decades but decided to get back into it. I have been working on 'Round Midnight by Thelonius Monk and this instrument sings when I don't make a mistake! I was a pro bassist for 22 years but I am only an amateur on harmonica. However, I know what great jazz harmonica should sound like so this one should please. The great Toots played Hohner I believe. The Suzuki might be my next acquisition as it is mellower and would be fun to play also.
