“The humming mate is an easy to hold compact version of our popular SU-21h humming tremolo. Available in keys of C and Am, it as 13 holes and 8 notes, and produces a beautiful old world sound. Tremolo harmonicas are diatonic models constructed with double holes, each containing two reeds tuned to the same note. Each reed is tuned slightly higher than the other and when played together, this slight difference in tuning creates a beautiful vibrato or tremolo sound. Many different kinds of gospel and old world music sound wonderful using tremolo style harmonicas. This one just makes them sound that much better. Includes clear plastic box.” – Suzuki
Dave Gage Thoughts: Tremolo harmonicas sound nice and don’t require much technical ability to make music. They are very limited in what you can play unlike a standard diatonic or chromatic harmonica, but they do sound good, are easy to play, and make a great gift for an absolute beginner.
