Orchestral Harmonicas

Orchestral harmonicas are designed for use in ensembles and generally cover a pitch range outside that of standard harmonicas, especially at the low and high end. They also tend to be larger than even the biggest chromatics, and some are designed specifically for playing chords. With a selection of orchestral harmonicas, a small ensemble is able to cover a range of classical pieces that are more commonly played by traditional stringed instruments.

Hohner Double Bass 58 Harmonica


Out of stock

The Hohner Double Bass 58 Orchestral harmonica is a bass with a wow-effect. As well as rhythmic accompaniment, every harmonica ensemble needs a suitable bass. With this 2-voice instrument each channel contains two reeds, tuned exactly one octave apart, giving an extremely fat sound. The lower of each pair of octave-tuned reeds is located on the inner rows of the instrument, ensuring that high and low ranges are equidistant from one another and thus enabling balanced micro-phoning. For the first time, the mouthpiece of the Bass 58 and Bass 78 models has been integrated into the body, making them remarkably airtight and ensuring matchless response and volume. This Hohner Double Bass 58 is a top of the line model and was developed in close cooperation with leading international players to create a high end professional instrument, combining unprecedented performance and ease of playability with the finest Hohner quality - a milestone in Hohner‘s legendary series of orchestral harmonicas. Optimised channel openings ensure great response even at low volume. Mouthpiece integrated into comb construction for maximum air tightness and volume. Complete stability in all climate zones thanks to modern acrylic glass body.

What are the Types of Orchestral Harmonicas?

Orchestral harmonicas can be broadly categorised under the following headings:

Chord Harmonicas

These, as the name suggest, are designed to play chords, rather than melodies.

Bass and Double Bass Harmonicas

These produce notes that are significantly lower than a standard diatonic or chromatic is able to offer, occupying the place typically reserved for the double bass in a classical orchestra.

Baritone Harmonicas

These are generally tuned around an octave lower than a similar sized tremolo harmonica, and occupy a pitch range similar to cellos.

Alto and Soprano Harmonicas

These occupy the higher end of the pitch range, with alto harps being tuned an octave lower than sopranos, which are used for the very highest notes in an ensemble.

Orchestral Harmonicas at The Harmonica Company

The Harmonica Company stocks a range of orchestral harmonicas from Tombo and Hohner. Suzuki orchestral harmonicas are also available on request.
