The double row of holes on tremolo harmonicas creates a distinctive vibrato effect. This is produced because the harmonica has 2 sets of reeds which are tuned to the same note with the top set tuned very slightly sharp. This produces a full-sounding modulated “tremolo” effect which has become a signature sound in countless forms of music the world over, notably in the folk music of Europe, Ireland and certain parts of South America. The Tremolo harmonica is especially popular in China, Japan, Korea and other parts of Asia where they are found in nearly every form of music from folk to classical. Asian musicans often use several different harmonicas at a time, holding one on top of another, in order to play notes not available on a single instrument.
Please note: This listing is for a harmonica in the key of C only.
