      Unique styling and sound with full 12-step versatility.

      The Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica has a 1-piece housing that provides warm, round tone. A comfortable smooth mouthpiece, and nonslip cover surface make the 7545 a better handling harmonica. Back-mounting spring plate eliminates the need for mouthpiece and cover screws, providing optimal slide action and improvement in compressing. This gives quicker response, greater volume, and exceptional ease in note bending. The harmonica's 4 major parts can be disassembled and reassembled in seconds with no tools. Makes cleaning a snap.

      Features

      • One-piece housing
      • Smooth mouthpiece
      • No screws
      • Quicker response

      You don't need a whole bandolier of harps to play in any key. Hone your chops on this baby and you can hold your own on any stage in the world.

      I travel all over the world with my harmonicas(5). These travel well, and because of the plastic body, don't split when traveling from humid to dry climates. They play well, but I did have one explode apart when I dropped it on stage. They don't fit in the smaller harmonica holders. Also, I have to make my own carriers since the belts are only for the Marine Band type harmonicas. I carry mine in a leather Bible case...sans the plastic case which is HUGE.

          GOOD DEAL FOR A GREAT HARP!

          By Robert Scooneas

          from Michigan

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          Being typically a diatonic blues player, I find this much more easy to play than other chromatic harps. Can't wait to figure out how to play jazz with it.
          Easy to break down and clean without tools.
          Plastic is OK

          My favorite harp

          By Papa Bear-hCz7S

          from Oakland, CA

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          Out of all my chromatics, the CX-12 has the best tone (with the possible exception of my Super 64) and is the most airtight and responsive. When you add to that the fact that it takes about two seconds to open it up to clean it or fix windsavers, it's a no-brainer! Despite the plastic case, it has a good heft to it. You can really feel the quality of this thing. It just feels solid. The button slides smoothly and easily and doesn't stick. I've had no valve buzz or anything. My go-to harp!

          5 years later....

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          I've had my 5 CX-12s almost 5 years and I last wrote a review over 2 years ago. I've had reeds go flat, and just paid more to Hohner for a replacement set of reed than I paid for the whole harmonica 5 years ago! They continue to be sturdy, dependable and travel well. Google harmonica repair, and there are people out there who will replace reeds and tune your harmonica for far less than Hohner. Not perfect...but better than most.

          By Anonymous

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          I've been playing harmonica around 3 years now, and really take it seriously. I'm soon going to get a blues harp, and have a Hohner 270 in G, 260 in C, and a cheap Swan (?) 16-hole. This was my grandfather's, along with the Hohner's, and this is by far my favorite. Great tone, nice sound, and when you tounge block, it sounds amazing. Especially the chording. I love this harmonica!

          The Harmonica That Should Have Been

          from New York City and Charleston

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          Some time ago, I placed a spirited "defense" on behalf of the CX12,... But, after playing it for a while, it now Wheezes in the Bass worse than I did when I had Asthma!Great Design,.. but Lousy Execution!

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          I play in a harmonica band and in country jam sessions. The CX-12 is my workhourse. It's easy to clean and I do that about once a month. I have Hohner replace my broken reeds. I break about one reed a year per harp.

          from Portland,OR

          Comments about Hohner 7545 CX12 Chromatic Harmonica:

          The slide responsiveness, volume and air-tightness are better out-of-the-box than any other model I've played. The plastic body does not rust but does wear out. Easier to clean than other models, but you do have to take care with the windsavers.If they didn't wear out so fast, I would play nothing else except maybe in the studio.
