Chrometta 12 purchased through BAJAAO.COM is an excellent harmonica. I think for musical instruments BAJAAO.COM is the best and faithful company.
While I enjoy my hohnica Educator Chromatic, as mentioned in another review, the Hohner Chromettas 10 and 12 are even better, in my opinion for a number of reasons.Unlike the diatonic, whose compact size makes it easy to hold and play, traditional chromatics are very cumbersome to hold and play. The larger, square-edged Chromatics will actually make your left hand hurt while holding it to play for extended periods (and no, I don't have arthritis either). The round edges of the Chrometta makes them far more comfotable to hold and play at the same time, making it easier to trill, tremlo, wah-wah, and other harmonica effects.Secondly, the sidebar key is a bit looser than traiditonal chromatics, meaning that there is a lesser chance of it getting stuck while playing.Yeah, it's worth some bucks, but it's worth it to discriminating harmonicists.
