OVERVIEW

The harmonica equivalent of a 12-string guitar!

The Hohner 1496/48 Echo Harmonica has an octave tuning (the upper row of 24 holes is tuned one octave below the lower row of 24). When the 2 rows are played at the same time this creates the effect of 2 harmonicas simultaneously playing the same melody. This enables a single harpist to achieve a stronger, full-bodied sound not possible while playing a standard diatonic.

Hohner Echo harmonicas offer comfortable curved mouthpieces with traditional wood combs. The chromeplated covers have turned-in ends for extra style and sound. Key of C.

FEATURES
  • 48 holes (2 rows of 24)
  • Each upper row hole is tuned an octave below each hole in the lower row
  • Achieves a stronger, full-bodied sound
  • Curved mouthpieces
  • Traditional wood comb
  • Chromeplated covers with turned ends
  • Diatonic
