        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

              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.

                  64chromonica..a musical wonder

                  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

                  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.

                  Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

                  This is what you need for Lennon's harmonica riff on "I Should Have Known Better". Quite beyond the typical blues harp price range, but essential for that on-the-money early Beatles sound. Schweeeet. After that easy-peasy song, you will find plenty other tunes - don't forget the larger 7 & 1/2 inch holder if your hands are gonna be busy on the keyboards or strings.

                  For the serious professional players

                  Comments about Hohner 280/64 Chromonica 64 Chromatic Harmonica:

                  This is the classic of professional harmonicas. This is a true musical instrument and is not a toy. The 280 Super is for the serious musician who does not want to be limited by set scales or octaves.

                  Never had a problem with mine. Has enough range to play any song. I can even bend a whole-tone on it. I love it.
