Taking up a new instrument? Consider the humble harmonica! These little slices of Americana are not just fun and affordable, but easy to play and travel with as well. Sweetwater offers a range of quality harmonicas for beginners to professionals. Whichever type of harmonica you’re looking at, you can be sure you’ll find the best price here at Sweetwater.
Despite its small size, the harmonica’s wide range of sounds makes it a fine fit for blues, country, rock, folk, and jazz music. We carry individual harmonicas and harmonica sets in a variety of keys, styles, and prices to suit every player’s needs.
Are you just starting out? Then check out one of our diatonic (major key) harmonicas, particularly in the key of C. This is the most common type you’ll hear in pop and folk music. If you’re looking to play the blues, check out our blues harps. These are simple to play, making them perfect for beginners.
Are you an advanced player? Sweetwater carries harmonicas in a range of keys to suit any song. If you don’t see what you need on our site, get in touch with our Sales Engineers. Chances are high we can special order one for you in time for your gig, and at a price you can feel confident in.
Are you an advanced harmonicist who’s looking for more variety in their sound? Consider a tremolo harmonica with two reeds for sharps and flats. And if you want to be able to play any scale or mode, try one of our chromatic harmonicas. This latter type is capable of producing lush chords and effects, but its difficulty makes it best reserved for professionals.
Are you a guitar player? If you’ve ever dreams of playing the harmonica while strumming, a harmonica holder is a must. Our holders have locking adjustments and can support an array of harps.
Got a question about a particular brand, or how a certain key will sound? Give our Sales Engineers a call. We’ll be happy to help you choose the best harmonica for your playing style.
