The Hering 9148 Hering Opus Chromatic is Hering's premier chromatic. Harmonica virtuoso, Stan Harper, has referred to this instrument as, "...the best instrument I've ever played straight out of the box."
What else needs to be said? If you know Stan,...THAT'S saying something! The phosphor bronze, valved reeds are riveted to nickel coated reed plates, and the specially channeled holes in the mouthpiece optimize airflow, making the Hering 9148 Opus Chromatic harmonica highly responsive even at lower playing levels. Each Opus harmonica comes in a nice covered box. Standard key of C (Other keys are available upon request and may carry a 30-day or more waiting period.)
