A compact instrument, the Old Standby has been a name used by Hohner since the late 19th century. Like an old faithful friend, the name stands for a harmonica you can always depend on when you need it. Used for all genres of music including blues, folk country, and rock.
The reeds of Diatonic Harmonicas produce the notes of the scale to which they are tuned. For example, a diatonic harmonica tuned to the key of C would produce the natural notes of the C scale without sharps and flats (picture the white keys on a piano, without the black keys). Each hole has two reeds; one plays when breath is exhaled (blow) and the other when inhaled (draw). The individual reeds are each tuned to play a different note on the scale.
Hohner harmonicas are the proven choice for both amateur and professional musicians for rock, pop, jazz, blues, folk, classical and beyond!
