Actually they consist of two diatonic harmonicas in one, tuned a semitone apart - for example in C and C#. The slide button is pushed in to switch the airflow from one to the other, thus raising the pitch of each note by a semitone. By combining these two scales, all 12 notes of the chromatic scale are available (some of them twice), which opens up a wealth of new musical options to the player. Chromatic harmonicas can easily be distinguished from other harmonica models by the slide button on the right hand side. They are most commonly heard in classical music and jazz, but are also often used in blues, folk music and pop. All chromatic harmonicas feature tempered tuning. The CX 12 is the most modern chromatic harmonica on the market today. Its elegance of design, ease of handling and remarkable sound quality set it apart from all other chromatic models. Easily removable, fast action, low noise slide. Maximum airtightness through revolutionary one-piece casing and mouthpiece design. This uniqueinstrument is popular with beginners and advanced players alike. Key: C-major Reeds: 48 Reed plates: Brass verchromt 1.3 mm Comb: Plastic
