        A blues-oriented, diatonic harmonica with an extremely classy look and a bold sound.

        Hohner crafts the 565 Cross Harp with a gold-plated plastic comb, black Greblon-coated* covers, and extra-thick (1.05 mm) reedplates that make it a stylish harmonica with a big sound.

        Perhaps the best looking harmonica made today, the Hohner 565 Cross Harp is a regular diatonic harmonica. The reed plates are recessed down into the gold plastic comb for a more airtight seal—increased airtightness means increased responsiveness. The cover plates are labeled in gold and finished in black for long-lasting beauty.

        The Hohner 565 Cross Harp takes its name from the style of playing that turns an ordinary harmonica player into a blues master. Feel the beefy, solid tones resonate through the gold-plated body into your hands as you rip through your favorite blues riffs. A heavier reed plate and a great design make this Hohner blues-oriented harmonica look, feel, and perform the way you want.

        About Hohner MS-Series harmonicas:
        The acronym 'MS' stands for Modular System, an integrated concept of Hohner's harmonica designs. MS-series harmonicas benefit from innovations that improve their playing characteristics and also significantly facilitate maintenance and handling. All MS-series parts (combs, reed plates, and covers) can be combined individually. Simple screw connections allow for easy assembly. This benefit offers players the possibility to adjust the instruments to their individual requirements. For example, some players prefer the body of one model and the cover plates of another, and so a "custom hybrid" is possible for the discerning player. Replacement reeds are available (see item: RP565 MS Replacement Reed Plates).

        About Hohner:
        Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.

        * Greblon is used as a non-stick coating for cookware.

          Product Quality Lacking

          By JB-4DlON

          from Lincoln, CA

          Comments about Hohner 565 Cross Harp MS-Series Harmonica:

          I bought this because it has the MS capability and I could buy replacement reeds rather than replacing the whole harp. The gold plating used on the comb has begun to flake after only a couple of months of regular use. Shouldn't happen for a harp with this price tag. The comb is a bit larger and takes some getting used to. Disappointed in this one.
