The Chromonica set the standard for chromatic harmonica instruments and was adopted early by noted players such as Larry Adler, Tommy Reilly or Jerry Murad and later by greats such as Willi Burger, Yasuo Watani and Franz Chmel. While considered to be a serious concert instrument, it has also found its niche in pop, jazz and blues over the years.
