Toots Mellow Tone
”Feel best in that little space between a smile and a tear.“
The grand old man of harmonica jazz Jean ‚Toots‘ Thielemans is one of the most widely recorded artists on the chromatic harmonica. He has also composed numerous pieces for the instrument. Conceived as an homage to the elder statesman of harmonica jazz and designed in close cooperation with the master himself, the two models of this series reflect the musical demands of the discerning jazz chromonica player.
Short slot reeds and thinner reed plates make this model perfect for playing ballads. The pearwood body gives the instrument a warm, resonant tone.
Designed in close coopeartion with jazz legond Toots Thielemans.
