The Hohner XB40 lets you easily bend every single note!
The revolutionary design of the XB40 allows for the bending of every note, whether blown or drawn. This capability not only offers incomparable expression alternatives, but it also enables the use of all notes of the chromatic scale just by using the standard bending technique. In addition, the design and shape of the XB40 generates a volume and tone that no traditional diatonic harp can achieve.
Never before has a harmonica been able to produce the technically brilliant sounds the XB40 can do with effortlessness and grace. Jump, jive and wail on the high end as well as the low. Play chromatically on a diatonic instrument. You’ll be in league with such recording greats as James Taylor, Mick Jagger and Stevie Wonder, all XB40 players.
