This is a excellent to mint condition model 270 M. Hohner Super Chromonica Harmonica in the key of C that is unused and comes in the original box.
This piece looks gorgeous and sounds wonderful. The slide action is in smooth working condition, and when the slide action is used it is a 24 key harp. It has 12 hole chromatic reeds, 48 with wind-saver valves reed plates and a beautiful Pearwood comb. The length is 15.5 cm
It has a numbered face for easy learning, and is a beautiful piece of workmanship, with no damage to this fantastic piece. The pear wood is in excellent condition.
As a principal choice for some of the world's leading harmonica musicians, Super Chromonica has a 3-octave chromatic range beginning at middle C. The chromatic harmonica's reeds are fitted with special wind-saving valves. The precision-crafted Hohner comb is optimized for superior reed response over its complete range, from the mellow low octave to the bright and clear top octave.
Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians. For those not familiar with harmonicas; this one is much larger than the standard size, and weighs 176 grams. It comes in the original box that is in good condition with some signs of storage wear.
A wonderful collectible piece that is in like new condition. I do not recommend purchasing any of these antique harmonicas as daily players.
