Hohner CX12 Jazz Chromatic Harmonica Red to Gold Finish in the Key of C
CX12 Jazz Wow!! Thatƒ??s quite a harmonica. The sleek lines of the racy looking ƒ??Jazzƒ??, constructed on the basis of the tried and tested CX12, make it a real attentiongrabber.
In response to requests from a number of CX12 fans, weƒ??ve made the new mouth-piece design narrower, which some players find suits their embouchure better. The new housing is fully compatible with all other CX12 models and is coated using an Ultraglide multilayer treatment.

The revolutionary design concept of the CX12 is as simple as it is ingenious. The comb and reed plate assembly is mounted in a one-piece mouthpiece / cover unit and secured in place by a powerful steel spring at the back. Despite its light action, the slide is exceptionally airtight.
The CX12 was first introduced at the Frankfurt Music Trade Fair in 1992 and went on to win the German Industry Design Award shortly afterwards.
This outstanding construction remains essentially unchanged today and is the first choice of chromatic stars such as Bill Barrett and LA studio crack Tollak Ollestad. All CX12 models are hand-made in Germany.
