Surprisingly good and excellent value
This was a total punt, I have a number of chromatic harmonicas including a Seydel, several Hohners including 3 CX12s, and my absolute favourite the Suzuki SCXs both the 48 and 64. So I am an experienced player and adore my Suzuki’s which are brilliant....why, because they are airtight and have a really comfortable mouthpiece. I wanted a cheap chromatic that had no valves as they can be problematic as they can stick and I don’t much care for the sound they make when you play. I ordered 2 unvalved cheapies, a Swann and an Easttop. The Swann was excellent and airtight but had a square mouthpiece, the Easttop had a beautiful rounded mouthpiece which is very much like my Suzuki’s but leaked quite badly, so I sadly returned it and got a refund. Then I saw this Kmise and took a punt on it. The first one never turned up, but I got a full refund. Then I ordered another. It arrived today and is truly excellent. It has the rounded mouthpiece of Easttop, so it’s comfortable to play with no sharp edges, and.....it’s totally airtight. It’s really well made with some reasonable heft and weight and is in tune all the way at through. The tone, well it’s good, but I know what I am doing and am certainly no beginner, but that’s good, because for the money, it’s brilliant. No valves to get stuck, can leave it in my car and play it whenever. That mouthpiece is so comfortable I can’t believe I paid £22 for it. This one punches way above its weight and gives harps 4 times the price a run for their money. So, I love this harp..... brilliant straight out of the box and £22....this is no toy.
Great value chromatic
This 10 hole Harmonica is branded Kmise but is almost certainly oem'd from Swan in China. It works excellently and is the new Swan design with rounded mouthpiece (previous Swan models had an angular mouth piece which could make lips sore after extended playing). I has a good tone and good volume. Slide works smoothly. So this new model seems near perfect design and incredible value at this price. I look forward to trying their 12, 14 or 16 hole new model chromatics with their larger range as the 10 hole has only 2 and a half octaves so the 12 hole would have the full 3 octaves. However I find I don't use the higher notes so much on a chromatic (unlike a blues diatonic 10 hole where it's good to occasionally scream out those high notes. In fact for jazz and classical on chromatic, ,more lower notes would be even better so I'm keen to try their 16 hole version or 14 hole if they make one. All in all... great value and highly recommended.
The perfect Chromatic Harmonica for beginners
This chromatic harmonica is the best in its range of price. If you want to start playing and you don't want to expend a lot, this is the best choice. The intonation is good, and it is easy to play. It is a non valve model, so you don't have to warm it up, it produces the sound straight away, and it is a very good sound. There are other good harps for beginners which are good too, like the Swan 1040 (I have one and I am happy with it) but this one is better. 100% recommended

Excellent for the price.
Firstly I used a tuning app and happily found that the note coming out of the instrument matched what it was supposed to be. Secondly there were no sharp edges to the metal so it could be slid from position to position without fear of damaging your lips. Yes, it is quieter than other more expensive brands but there are such things as mikes and amps. Looking forward to learning to play this instrument properly. Surprising quality for the price when compared to more prestigious brands. The hard case is a bonus.
Good quality and good value
This is my first chromatic harmonica. I bought this model on the recommendation of a friend who regularly plays his Swan Chromatic in a band. The instrument comes in sturdy plastic case and is well made. All the notes, both blow and draw, play and are in tune. There are no rough edges and the slider moves smoothly. The harmonica is quieter than more expensive models from established names which makes it a good starter or practice instrument. For me this is an ideal and affordable instrument for anyone progressing from a diatonic harmonica to test whether a chromatic is for them.
Bend notes on chromatic.
Surprisingly good given the price. There are no pesky windsavers on this chromatic and it doesn't seem to be ar any disadvantage because of that. Indeed it's possible to bend notes as on a diatonic so that's a bonus. For the money spent it was well worth it.
What great value!
I have a couple of ancient Hohner Super Chromonicas which play ok but don’t smell or taste that good, even after cleaning so I started looking for an alternative. This Swan Chromatic is proving to be just the job, everything works as it should and is of good quality. It is slightly quieter the the Hohners but you expect that from a valveless harmonica. It plays straight out of the box and needs no warming up, unlike conventional chromes. I love the mouthpiece with its round holes which are much less wearing on the lips and tongue. Go for it!

Reviews

Reviews here are for 2 DIFFERENT harmonicas
The reviews listings here are meant to be for the Easttop KING DREAM harmonica but these reviews seem also to cover reviews of the Easttop FORERUNNER. They are in fact two quite different instruments so I am going to review each in turn. The King Dream is a 12 hole VALVED harmonica. This means that theoretically when you blow or draw a note, nearby notes are blocked by a strip or double strip of thin plastic. This makes the note you are playing less prone to leakage and therefore the note is easier to play, requiring less "wasted" breath. The King Dream is a good sounding instrument and is decently in tune, but like nearly all valved harmonicas some notes get "stuck" when the plastic valves do not lift due to excessive moisture. The King Dream is TWICE as expensive as the Easttop Forerunner because it has valves. I give the King Dream 4 stars, but if you are unlucky enough to get multiple stuck valves you will need patience in adjusting them, in which case this instrument maybe worth only 3 stars. But apart from any valve problems this instrument, though not quite up to semi-pro Hohner standards, is pretty good. The Easttop FORERUNNER is also a 12 hole chromatic harmonica but it does not have valves, which explains why it is half the price of the other instrument. However this is the only valveless harmonica I have tried that performs as though it did have valves. In other words there is almost no leakage even without the windsavers/valves closing and opening according to which note you play. It is just about the most leak-free valveless harmonica available at its very affordable price. But - and you might be more lucky in this regard, my iForerunner is quite badly out of tune on 3 notes: 1st Octave A (flat), 2nd Octave C (very sharp) and the next blown C (slightly flat). This means you have to constantly adjust your technique as you play, which is a pain. You can adjust tuning of each reed if you know what you are doing, either by playing differently, or shaving material from the reed, but nevertheless it is a pity that this particular instrument was not thoroughly checked by Easttop's quality control department before shipping. It is likely that other examples are perfectly in tune in which case I was unlucky. So in summary, the reviews in this section refer to 2 different instruments. Many of the reviews here clearly refer to the valveless Easttop Forerunner and others refer to the Easttop King dream WITH valves.
Smooth mellow
The mouthpiece was'nt perfect but otherwise ok. All the notes in tune.
A harp noob
I'm a complete harp noob but once I discovered that everything I've learned to play just needs going up a note. I.e draw 3 becomes draw 4 etc. I think round blow holes are the way forward so well done on that note. The sound quality however doesn't seem as crisp as other maker models. All in all I'd recommend this harp.
6 is best for granddaughter to start hearing and copying tunes on her new chromatic Harmonica.
Product was bought for my granddaughter Selected on line and based om my own experience with playing very small mouth organs in the 50s. Purchase process was simple. Product has a case and arrived in mint condition. Granddaughter is proud of her new Harmonica and has started the trial and error process of hearing and copying tunes. Chromatic notes will enable her to play all tunes within the range of the instrument - something I was unable to do. It is a wonderful instrument.

best harmonica chromatic: Buying Guide

The Harmonica chromatic has two sets of reed plates, one over the top of the other. A button is attached to the slide that directs air to the reeds. Typically, the reeds on the bottom are tuned to the same scale as those on the top. For example, a top chromatic harmonica will be tuned to C and the bottom chromatic harmonica will be tuned to a C#. The bottom reeds are also a semitone higher than the top reeds. The result is an instrument with twelve different notes and a unique sound.

A Chromatic Harmonica is a 10 hole instrument with 40 tones, with four tones per hole. These instruments are great for complex songs, and their design allows them to produce crisp, pure sounds. Because the chromatic harmonica has four tones per hole, it has excellent air tightness, minimizing moisture absorption. Its construction consists of copper plate and phosphor bronze reeds. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the holes are rounded.

The Chromatic Harmonica is available in many different models. They are great for beginners as well as professionals. The CX12 Black, for example, is the standard model in the CX12 line. The CX12 Black offers a bright, clear, and smooth sound. The CX12 features reeds of a standard thickness. A typical model has twelve holes. The mouthpiece is made of ABS and is constructed of zigzag slides.

A Chromatic harmonica is a high-end instrument with ten holes. Its size and tone range makes it a great choice for beginners. Depending on your budget, you can select a mid-priced model that includes some of the best features. This will ensure you can enjoy the sound of the Harmonica while practicing without spending a fortune. If you are a beginner, a low-priced Chromatic is the right choice.

Compared to a diatonic harmonica, chromatic harmonicas tend to be more expensive than diatonic instruments. A chromatic harmonica can cost up to ten times more than its counterpart. In addition, a chromatic chromatica will not have the same range of pitches, but it will play more notes than a diatonic instrument. Moreover, a chromatic instrument will not have a single note of any other type of reed.

Although a chromatic harmonica is more versatile than a diatonic harmonica, it can also be used for jazz, classical, or pop music. The main benefit of a chromatic harmonica is that it is easier to play and requires less practice. It has a wider range of notes than a diatonic one, so it is best to choose a chromatic instrument that is easy to play and has a lower range of keys.

Choosing a chromatic harmonica is a difficult decision for beginners. While a chromatic harmonica has a broader range of tones than a diatonic harmonica, its reeds are identical. The Hering 5148 series is an excellent choice for new players. The reeds are identical to the Suzuki Leghorn SC-48. A chromatic violin is a better choice for advanced players.
