Finally there is a harmonica with expanded tonal range, that plays as well as a ten-hole diatonic!
This Solist Pro 12 STEEL - now with stainless steel reeds - combines the features of the 1847 models with those of our Low and Superlow harps:

Richter tuned

  • The notes in holes 1-3 correspond to holes 1-3 of our Low- or Superlow harps - the notes in holes 4-12 are taken from holes 1-9 of the normal 1847 models (except keys C & A: Notes 1-3 are the usual notes of a standard A/C and 1 -9 are taken from a HC/HA)
  • convenient handling though there are two holes more brass reedplates optimized for loudness and extreme airtightness
  • very good response wooden body, multiple coats of sealant for a resistant finish
  • German Silver reedplates
  • Stainless Steel reeds in holes 1-9 and traditional brass reeds in holes 10-12

The Solist Pro 12 STEEL is small enough to fit into the players hands to give him the feeling of holding a 10-hole diatonic like he is used to. This enables for full-cupped playing. The additional bass octave allows playing rhythms. There are manifold opportunities to play in octaves, too.

The Richter-chord is available twice (holes 1-6).


Solo Tuned

Tones are the same as on a chromatic harmonica - the finish is that of a diatonic 10 hole harp. This makes this instrument interesting for both Folk and as an entrance into to the "chromatic world" - now equipped with Stainless Steel reeds in holes 1 - 9.

  • three full octaves are available (starting with C4)
  • for the folk-musician: play meodies over three octaves
  • for the chrom-beginner: tuned like a chromatic without slider
  • innovative hybrid system: Stainless Steel reeds from the 1847 series in hole 1 -9 and traditional brass reeds in holes 10 - 12

Only two holes more, but many new playing features!
