Diatonic Harmonicas

 

These harmonicas are ideally suited for playing blues, country, rock pop, folk, and other related types of music.

The vibration of a single reed produces each of the 20 notes on a Richter System harmonica. Diatonic harmonicas usually have ten holes, each of which contain two reeds, a blow reed and a draw (inhale) reed. Blowing any three consecutive holes, can produce a major tonic chord. A dominant seventh chord can be produced on the draw reeds. Thus they can produce music containing both chords and single notes.

Each instrument is tuned to a specfic major key, and each has a three octave range.

Although Richter System harmonicas were originally designed to play only 20 notes, many other notes can be played by employing the techniques of bending, overblowing, and overdrawing. With these techniques, a harmonica tuned to one particular key can be played in other keys as well.

 

We offer diatonic harmonicas from Seydel, Suzuki, Hohner, Lee Oskar, Huang, Hering, and Buckeye Music.
