Great look, great sound
Instruments like these will bring a smile to any child's face with their colourful appearance alone, making it much easier for him or her to pick them up and start playing. The Happy Colors are excellently suited for both kids and adults, giving them a great start to their musical journey through harmonica land. Sound-wise this instrument is very similar to professional harmonicas, and it's a great fit for genres of music such as blues and folk.
Hohner has been making harmonicas of all shapes and sizes for over 150 years now. When the idea of the Happy Color Harp surfaced, their specialists instantly agreed on how they would construct it. The German harmonica giant knows like no other how to make the most of their harmonicas. Let's work our way from the inside out and start with the reeds. The Happy Color Harp has 20 reeds, and they're made of brass and attached to an aluminium plate. Its comb is made of ABS plastic, which is highly durable and won't swell up over time - like wooden combs do. The mouthpiece is also made of plastic, making the Happy Color Harp very comfortable to play. Finally, the cover plates on the side of the harmonica are made of ABS, just like the comb, but they have a matte finish.
Learning to play
While this harmonica can certainly be a fun gadget gift, it will not disappoint ambitious parents or serious harmonica fans. It features 10 holes and it's tuned in C, which makes the Happy Color Harp excellently suited for use during harmonica lessons.
