Diatonic Harmonica Reviews

A Diatonic Harmonica commonly has ten holes with two reeds per hole; one reed for the blow and one for the draw. The Diatonic Harmonica is often refered to as the "harp", "blues harp" and is typically used in blues and country music. By design these harmonicas only play a diatonic scale in a single musical key. Other types of Diatonic Harmonicas are the Tremolo Harmonica, (where two reeds are tuned slightly apart to produce a tremolo effect.) and the Octave Harmonica (where two reeds are tuned an octave apart to produce more volume and a different timbre).
