Hohner Hard Bopper Chromatic Harmonica w/Lifetime Comb
This harmonica is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-05-23)
Price : US $125.00
Offered for sale is a Hohner Chromatic 12 hole harmonica, the Toots Hard Bopper as played by Toots Thielemans. This one is serial number 034066. It is used but looks and plays as brand new.
The reed plates, mouthpiece, and covers are chrome plated; the comb is a ''Lifetime Comb'', made of white plastic and manufactured by the late Richard Farrell. The covers and plates can be removed individually, either the top or bottom (the slide reed plate is on the bottom), by virtue of the design of the comb which, since it is not wood, will last a long time. You can find a glowing review of this comb by renowned harmonica player Blackie Schackner here: http://www.harpl.com/199835164.html
I retuned this harmonica to bebop tuning using silver solder, but have changed it back to the normal tuning. Only four reeds were retuned, the redundant C notes on blow holes 4 and 8 and the corresponding slide notes. I cannot perceive any change in the tone or playability as a result of this retuning.
I will allow a short period for return if this harmonica does not meet your standards, but you must pay for return shipping if this is the case.
