Trumpet Harmonica for the musically inclined
We all know about the trumpet and the harmonica as separate musical devices, but what happens when you marry the two? The result is the Trumpet Harmonica that is handmade by the famous Hohner instrument company who have been churning out great sounding harmonicas for the last 150 years.
This full concert octave harmonica faithfully reproduces the original 1907 design, and includes five meticulously crafted brass bells which produce the instruments vibrant sound. A solid pearwood comb forms the core of the harmonica, and it will not swell, even after years of playing, because it is the same wood used in orchestral recorders. Two brass Knittlinger-replica reed plates are affixed to either side of the comb using the traditional nailing method and enclosed by two cover plates, creating 10 double holes and a total of 40 reeds. The brass bells all connect to the air chamber, and blowing o r drawing on one of the holes passes air through the nearest bell, resulting in the classic Hohner vibrato.
