A double-sided tremolo harmonica designed for playing Highland bagpipe tunes.
Like the rest of Hohner's Tremolo series of harmonicas, the Highlander features a horizontal division of the air channels so each channel has two reeds for each note”one pair for blown notes and another pair for drawn ones. These reeds”which are basically identical”are tuned to slightly different frequencies. When played together, this difference causes the characteristic beating of the tremolo sound. It's a guarantee for a cheerful and merry tone.
In the case of the Highlander, it is specially designed for the Scottish Celtic players to play Highland bagpipe tunes. The Hohner harmonica is double sided, in the keys of A and D. The A side includes a flattened 7th note on draw 6 and draw 14, allowing one to play pipe tunes like never before.
Aesthetically, the name "Highlander' is engraved in a Celtic-like font that works well with the rest of the artistic pattern that adorns this beautiful harp. The box it comes in features a green tartan pattern in the same shade as the comb.
