    Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

    I am a musician of fifty years. I am blessed to play several instruments on a regular basis in a church worship band. My church likes my harmonicas a little better than the other instruments because our group is built from a group of ex-country players. We have guitars, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, viola, etc. all from experienced players. Because of the quality of this 280/64 in all facets, I will anxiously wait for every opportunity I have to play this fabulous instrument!

      I am amateur Player. This is my first hohner chromatic and so far I like the instrument. Initially some reeds produced a buzz which seems to have reduced with time.

          Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

          I"ve had thisHonher model since the early 70's. Had tried using other harmoincas without success by myself... just didn't make sense..gave them away UNTIL I bought this model with a professional neckholder: FIRST day I was able to use it playing melody on four songs while accompanying myself on guitar...it all made sense. Used it to play solo gigs, with bands in small and large venues. Opened up a whole new world for me. Used it many times to tune my guitar. BOB DYLAN and NEIL YOUNG were major influences on me... because of them I bought this harmonica...don't really need the 64 octave..the smaller one works well. the sound is just amazing..especially when played thru a professional PA system. Crowds love it. I don't play it alone.. only while playing guitar... but others can pick it up and use it alone to accompany a band..rock, folk, Christian. if you want to play an instrument..this is it. Actually, I learned how to sing many songs by using the harmonica with guitar for the melody first... helped me to find my voice 'key' on certain songs. buy one, or the smaller model.. and sit down with some other musicans..play along. I've shown 8 year olds how to play successfully while I played guitar. Can't say enough... except COST... it's worth it, but for many musicians it's a little expense on a tight budget If it was less expensive i'd buy another one today. large or smaller one. *adds a lot to eagles songs, neil young songs, etc. buy one, try it, come away smiling.

          Pretty good instrument to play with

          About Me Novice

          Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

          Actually my first time to handle a chromatic harmonica so I can't say I have much experience with it and also no comparation with other brands, but for me, it works well with no difficulty in both low and high region notes. I really like the rich tone of the first several notes. That's great!

          And one thing I want to mention is that for the last week, I noticed the windsaver is a little bent over so it's not contacted closely with the groove. Guess it's because the way I play it is not correct or because of the temperature/weather...definitely it does not have this problem when shipped to me.

          I sent 2 back; 3rd one seems to work

          About Me Professional Musician

          Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

          The first 280/64 I received had one reed/note that would not play (and I tried everything). I sent it back; new one arrived. How happy I was until I discovered the screw, that holds slide in place, was missing. Sent THAT one back. I have received a 3rd one which seems to be working. It does sound gorgeous (although one low reed has a slight buzz).
          I would recommend this model to a friend but only after warning him to watch for occasional shoddy work that must have been done at factory.

              I never dreamed I'd spend this much on a harp. I thought I ordered a 'G' but got a 'C'. Maybe I can get the 'G' later. I could not be more pleased with this Hohner.

              Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

              I have owned and played a 64 chromonica for several years along with several other hohners. It is, in my opinion, the best harmonica I have ever played. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I have.

              Super 64

              By eddie kibbee

              from albuquerque, NM

              Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

              The super 64 chromatic is an essential part of any harmonica players inventory. With a mic & amp it's amazing the sound that can be produced ... just plain fun. On the down side, the paper/plastic buffer reeds go out frequently and require maintenance. This harp has a big thumbs up from me.
