The Educator 10 model sports a comb design that provides a clear and powerful sound without the need for valves. Good news for players who struggle with sticking or noisy windsavers! Its affordable price also makes it a good starter chromatic, both for novices and players making a transition from smaller diatonic models. Packaged in a zippered black pouch. Chromatic harmonicas are designed to play every complete scale in any key – major, minor, pentatonic, blues, etc. – all on one harmonica. They provide the complete 12-note octave with all sharps & flats. Each hole contains four reeds: two natural notes & two chromatic notes. The reeds for chromatic notes are enabled by pushing a slide button on the side of the harmonica, which closes off air flow from one set of reeds & enables the other set to vibrate freely. Chromatics are most often heard within the classical and jazz styles. Key of C 10 holes; 40 reeds Includes a zippered carrying pouch Due to health regulations, harmonicas may be returned for credit only if they are in their original, sealed packaging. If defective, these items will only be exchanged for the same product.
