The Hohner Big Valley is an entry level tremolo harmonica and is a great way for anyone to take their first steps into the world of tremolo harmonica playing. Whilst a budget instrument the Big Valley is durable and produces a very nice tone at a very affordable price.
Tremolo style harmonicas use 2 reeds for each note - one reed is tuned slightly sharp and one is tuned slightly flat. The resulting sound creates a 'beat' or warbling sound which gives this type of harmonica its distinctive sound, similar to that of an accordion.
