“Xpression” – Hohner’s Latest Chromatic Harmonica

This just in from SPAH Platinum Sponsor, Hohner.


Hohner’s new “XPRESSION” chromatic harmonica, available for purchase on April 3rd, offers new technical features and musical capabilities, lending to an expressive and comfortable performance for beginners and advanced players alike.


Made in Germany, the “XPRESSION” was designed to exhibit excellent playing capabilities while
maintaining comfortable handling. The instrument includes a CNC-milled stainless steel
mouthpiece with excellent gliding properties and integrated precision slide to provide maximum
comfort for the performer, ergonomically shaped stainless steel covers for comfortable handling,
a sound-optimized ABS comb for durability in a wide variety of climatic conditions, reedplates
manufactured to prioritize maximum air tightness and precision-machined brass reeds capable
of supporting heavy use.


“The stainless steel mouthpiece meets the high standards of professionals for playability and
performance” said Hohner Harmonica Brand Manager Jimmy Zednik. “The Xpression is priced to
appeal to players starting out, while the design, materials, construction, and durability make it an
instrument that will last as players progress to higher playing levels.”


Of note, the Xpression is valved, and straight-tuned. SPAH intends to publish a review of the instrument in an upcoming issue of Harmonica Happenings . Yvonnick Prené  is featured on the packaging for the Xpression, and and you can watch Prené demonstrating and speaking about this new model on the Hohner website. The launch of this instrument coincides with the International Chromatic Harmonica Competition in Hong Kong (see the earlier SPAH News story).
