The Original Chromatic Revolution
With its sleek good looks and the elegant simplicity of its construction, the CX12 Black turned a lot of heads when it was introduced in 1992.
It won the German Industry Design Award shortly afterwards, which was definitely a first for a harmonica instrument in modern times.
Its powerful, distinctive sound and fast, easy response make it ideal for the ambitious amateur or contemporary professional player looking for a modern, easy to service chromatic harmonica in styles such as rock, pop and jazz.
