The Hohner Weekender is the ideal tremolo harmonica for beginners, providing a smooth sound with a solid plastic body.
Hohner Tremolo Harmonicas are traditional, popular models. Tremolo-tuned harmonicas are mainly used for folk music. They are easily recognisable by the horizontal division of the air channels. Each channel has two reeds for each note, one pair for blown notes and another pair for drawn ones.
These reeds – which are basically identical – are tuned to slightly different frequencies. When played together, this difference causes the characteristic beating of the tremolo sound, a guarantee for a cheerful and merry tone!
Hohner harmonicas are the proven choice for both amateur and professional musicians for rock, pop, jazz, blues, folk, classical and beyond!
For 150 years Hohner - the world's biggest manufacturer of harmonicas - has proudly maintained a tradition of high quality instrument making. Their mission is to offer a diverse range of models designed to meet the needs of every musician in today's musical climate.
