Hohner 1493 Echo 32 Octave Tuned Harmonica

16 holes, 32 reeds with wooden comb

All models of the Echo Line are very traditional and base on a history of more than 60 years. Their warm and smooth sound gives these instruments an unique character and charm.

This is a family of gorgeous harmonicas with octave tuning (the upper row is tuned one octave below the lower row).

Echo harmonicas offer comfortable curved mouthpieces with traditional wood combs. The chrome-plated covers have turned in ends for extra style and sound. Key of G only.

A member of the Echo Octave series, this model features a wood body which adds resonance to the rich octave tuning. Open backed covers amplify and project the sound out to the audience, and the curved mouthpiece makes the high and low notes easy to reach. Octave harmonicas are similar to Tremolo models in reed layout and musical range. Instead of having reeds tuned to the same note, however, each double hole has one reed tuned an octave apart from the other. The resulting sound is stronger and full bodied, but without the tremolo effect.

This is the harmonica equivalent of a twelve-string guitar and is ideal for regional and international styles like Cajun, Old-Time and Irish music.
