This is one beautiful instrument. Very well made. And it comes in a sturdy plastic case along with a polishing cloth. The first day I just sat there and looked at it without picking it up. When I did pick it up, I was surprised just how heavy it was.
I am just learning to play the harmonica, so I can't get real technical about this review. But compared to the Diatonic harmonicas that I've been playing, it simply blows them away.
The finish is flawless, The slide is super smooth. The notes are precise with no sticking of the reeds.
I've been playing Hohner Proharp diatonics for the last few years, and I wanted to try my hand at chromatics. This is a whole new ballgame...
I am very glad I purchased this instrument. It is not cheap by no means, but neither is a Gibson. I bought mine in the key of G, and I plan on buying a few more in different keys after I learn how to play it.
The slide is super smooth.
The shape is very comfortable. It fits your hand like a glove.
I like the round holes on the mouthpiece, compared to the square ones found on other harmonicas. It gives you much more control over the notes your playing.
Flawless finish. More chrome than a '57 Bel Air. When you pull this out to play it, people will notice.
Nothing is free in life. You get what you pay for.

I've developed a Love Hate relationship with these Harmonica's. They are wonderfully made and designed. They are beautiful little instruments with a big sound . . . but they are Fragile. Very Fragile! The fact is, Historically speaking, not one Chromatix Harp has lasted an entire year without losing a reed. In fact maybe 8 months. At first I thought, (and was told by suzuki) it was me, but after several years and changing my style and babying these harps . . . I don't think its me any longer. So what I do is make sure I have backups for each key. Then when one go's south, I grab the backup and send the sick Harp to the shop. That makes Suzuki happy I'm sure. But its hard to justify the expense. All said tho, I haven't found another harp that I would replace them with, and I've tried them all. So long story short, Love the Sound, Hate the Fragility. You have to decide for yourself, is it worth the cost and headache. Below ask would you recommend to a friend. The answer is yes - But an Experienced Friend/Player and only after reading this.

        Best chromatic harmonica I've played

            Comments about Suzuki SCX Chromatix Series Harmonica:

            I love the idea of the chromatic harmonica - a fully chromatic 3-octave instrument that fits in the palm of your hand. I like low G instruments since they have the same basic range as a violin.

            I have several low G chromatics. My three Hohners are certainly good, and the design of the Hohner CX-12 is a real meistershtuck. But this Suzuki is the best I've played. All the reeds are dead on in playability and pitch; the sound is warm, very responsive and balanced.

              In the world of Chromatic Harmonicas (under 300.00 range), this is the best I've found. The response is superb, the tone is awesome. Diatonics, I prefer Special 20.

                    I have other brand chromatic harmonicas, but have switched exclusively to the SCX48. Tone is better, not shrill, the convex mouthpiece feels better than others. I normally play lead solo or with a guitar accompaniment.

                            The valves stick closed almost immediately because of condensation. I live in a desert with virtually no humidity but the temperature and humidity from a mouth are enough to silence this beautiful chromatic.

                            I have a Honer Chromatic III that I've had for 57 years and it doesn't have this problem. I tried to dry my mouth out with mouth wash before playing and still had problems.

                              Comments about Suzuki SCX Chromatix Series Harmonica:

                              The tone quality is warm and full. The action of the slide is smooth and has yet to stick. I have had the instrument for a couple of months and it is nicely broken in. The top octave is a little stubborn yet but it is loosening up quite well. The tone blends very well with the violin and viola better than my previous harmonica. My wife is a professional violinist, retired and we can now play well together, producing a fine sound with our music. Thank you Suzuki.
