A smoothly curved, diatonic harp with a 1950's look that features equal-tempered tuning, making it
ideal for playing melodies.
The Hohner Golden Melody harmonica has an attractive 1950s look thanks to its rounded shape and closed-sided,
full-length covers. An especially airtight harmonica with a strong, full-bodied sound, the Golden Melody is the only Hohner
diatonic harp with equal-tempered tuning, which makes it especially suitable for melody playing.
Curved cover plates
extend the entire length of the Golden Melody harmonica, providing increased resonant capacity. With a comfortably curved
shape, the Golden Melody harmonica's smooth, rounded corners fit nicely into the palms of your hands as you play. Hohner sets
the Golden Melody harmonica's reeds close to the open-framed mouthpiece, so it responds to the subtlest of commands—making
the Golden Melody perfect for overblowing as well as for bending. You'll find taht the Golden Melody's sound is unique in
its class with a slightly different tuning that produces full, rich, melodic tone.
Although it's a favorite harmonica
among gospel and hymn players on Sunday mornings, the Golden Melody can definitely hold its own in the blues bar the night
before. The Hohner Golden Melody harmonica is a favorite of great harpists such as Pierre Lacocque of Mississippi Heat, jazz
virtuoso Howard Levy, and Levy's renowned Cuban-Canadian student, Carlos Del Junco. Its unique design, coupled with an airtight,
dark red, plastic body sets the 10-hole Golden Melody harmonica apart. Its equal-temperament tuning makes the Hohner Golden
Melody a natural for country music. And there's no doubt that your Golden Melody is the harmonica that can bring down the
house on blues and rock numbers.
