Hohner Koch Chromatic Harmonica

Item #: HHKOCH
Price: $149.99

The Bluesharp with Slider

The Koch is designed to offer more sound versatility than the standard 10-hole diatonic model.  When pushed, the slide button raises each pitch by one half step, making it possible to play a wider range of notes than available on typical Marine Band style tuning.  The reed plates are valveless, allowing usual diatonic techniques such as note bending to be employed.
