Shop Harmonicas by Type
Harmonica Holders are devices that keep the harmonica in a fixed position without the need to hold the harp in your hands. This frees you up to play a different instrument - often a guitar or other stringed instrument, such as a ukulele or banjo - simultaneously.
They usually feature a U-shaped metal band that fits over the shoulder attached to an adjustable metal upright that has in built slots for the harmonica. The majority of holders are set up to take standard 10 hole diatonic harps, as these are the most common types used in situations that require a holder. However, Hohner does produce one holder - the HH154 - that will accept 10, 12 and 14 hole harmonicas, thereby allowing players of longer harps to benefit from hands free harmonica playing.
How do you Use a Harmonica Holder?
Most holders have a spring mounted clip for the harmonica itself, so the first thing to do is to push the harmonica into place, ensuring that it is central in the device. Then you can slip the holder around your neck and tighten the wing nuts that fasten the arms to the U shaped part of the holder. Ensure that these are sufficiently tight that the harmonica will not move, whilst playing, then adjust the arms so that the harmonica is comfortable to play whilst using your other instrument.
The Harmonica Company stocks the major brands of holder, including Lee Oskar, Hohner and Fender and can ship worldwide with fast delivery times.
