The Chromonica set the standard for chromatic harmonica instruments and was adopted early by noted players such as Larry Adler, Tommy Reilly or Jerry Murad and later by greats such as Willi Burger, Yasuo Watani and Franz Chmel. While considered to be a serious concert instrument, it has also found its niche in pop, jazz and blues over the years. The HOHNER Chromatic Harmonica, later renamed the Super Chromonica was invented in 1912 and while Chromonicas and Super Chromonicas have been improved over the years, the core design remains in use on the original concept today.
All Chromonica models are hand-made in Germany
Whether it’s a melody from a long forgotten movie or a tune from childhood that you keep hearing in your head, we all have certain songs that are imbedded in our memory and take us back in time. With the Super Chromonica, we can recapture those moments. Almost unchanged since its inception, it’s still the original chromatic harmonica and the instrument of choice for generations of players who have left their mark in folk, pop and jazz.
