Retro 1950 Style with a Pure Golden Tone!
The Golden Melody has that attractive 1950s look featuring full length covers that are closed at the sides. The Golden Melody is the only Hohner diatonic harp featuring equal tempered tuning which makes it especially suitable for melody playing.
Hohner’s Golden Melody has a great feel with its curved shape. Its sound is unique from all the others in its class in that it’s tuned slightly differently to produce a full, rich melodic tone. Although it’s a favorite among gospel and hymn players on Sunday morning, the Golden Melody can definitely hold its own in the blues bar the night before.

The favorite of great harpists such as Pierre Lacocque (Mississippi Heat) and Carlos Del Junco, the Golden Melody has a unique design coupled with an air tight, dark red, plastic body and smooth, rounded corners fit nicely into the palm of your hand. The Golden Melody has equal temperament tuning for melody playing, which makes it a natural for Country Music, but it can still bring down the house on blues and rock numbers.
