Torpedo Harmonica by Harmo®

Comfortable, Powerful. Plays like Butter

The Torpedo is a top-of-the-line professional quality instrument for the demanding player in jazz, modern blues, rock, soul and classical music.
The Torpedo diatonic harmonica goes through more hands-on work in our US facility to ensure the best overblowing performance on the market. You can bend and overbend all the notes from holes 1 to 10 in a way that no other manufactured harmonica does.*
Each reed is manually adjusted and optimized through a long and precise process.

The Torpedo is extremely responsive, overblows don't squeak and are triggered faster making it simply the best all-around harmonica to play any style, any genre in any key.

Very well-suited for the jazz and modern player as it allows you to play in all 12 keys on a single instrument. The Torpedo also plays like a charm in blues, country, and rock styles, and anything you want to throw at it.

The Torpedo diatonic harmonica by Harmo® is available in all 12 keys: C, Db, D, Eb, E, F, F#, G, Ab, A, Bb, and B.
Best results for overblows will be found in the key of G, Ab ,A, Bb, B, C, Db, D
Eb. E, F and F# are also optimized and will be much better than standard harmonicas but won't overblow all the notes because of the nature of those keys and reeds.

A sturdy zipper case keeps the dust out and allows moisture to evaporate. A wiping cloth is also included.

  • bending and overblowing require work and practice.

Please allow 5-7 business days before shipping as we customize and check each harmonica one by one

Mike G. on 08/11/2018 the slide bar sticks and it's only 8 weeks ago since I purchased. I did send an email asking for help but no reply

greg s. on 06/25/2018 I really like the tone and playability of this harmo torpedo and plan on replacing some of my other harps in my most used keys.
Harmo Torpedo
Michael H. on 04/11/2018 Love it! It’s already setup for overblow and has great tone.
Great, as advertised
Brad K. on 04/05/2018 I don't know why I saw someone rip these harps online, because they play as advertised, smooth, easy to bend, loud, clean and clear. AND a BARGAIN!!
Fantastic deal
jeff b. on 01/29/2018 Loud , tight, and bright!
Super Torpédo A
Dominique a. on 01/14/2018 Après avoir essayé avec beaucoup de satisfaction deux torpédos C et D, j'ai fais l'acquisition d'un A et d'un Bb. La présentation est toujours très soignée, boite, étui...Mais surtout j'ai retrouvé dans ces deux nouveaux harmos les qualités des 2 premiers : - la puissance, étonnante pour des instruments d'aspect ordinaire, -la qualité des sons, - la facilité pour le déclenchement des altérations, - mais surtout le réglage overblows et overdraws, qui permet avec un minimum d'entrainement d'obtenir des gammes chromatiques avec un son de qualité, ce qui musicalement donne de nouvelles perspectives au diatonique. De par leur réglage la phase d'apprentissage des altérations, des overblows et des overdraw s'en trouve donc très allégée. Je vais très certainement poursuivre petit à petit le remplacement de mes Honners par des torpédo.

Très bien , bien reçu, bel harmonica, excellente transaction. merci.

Custom harmonica at a fraction of the cost !
Andre G. on 04/02/2017 The reedwork on those harmonicas is comparable to high-end work done by top customizers like Joe Filisko … minus the price. I am amazed at how loud, easy to bend and overblow this harmonica is. Then I looked again at the price and I am just speechless. It's pure magic !
Incredible overblow harp for the money!
Shubham H. on 04/24/2017 The torpedo is an amazing value for money if you want a great overblow harmonica with amazing responsiveness and tone! I am already a big fan of all the resources Harmo/David Herzhaft have been putting out for harmonica players worldwide...it was a no brainer to try out the Torpedo series of harmonicas...you rarely get an overblow setup harmonica for anything less than about $200 in the market so what a delight it was to see the very conservative pricing on these harps. The harps are setup beautifully in terms of responsiveness and action. Given that overblowing requires skills which I am yet to master, I can definitely get the 6 overblow easily; the harmonica is setup with all overblows and overdraws...I hope to unlock all the power and possibilities of the harmonica as my skills improve. Although great harmonicas for any genre, if you are particularly looking for a great overblow setup harmonica, this is probably the best harmonica to start with ( these are incredibly much more responsive than out of the box harmonicas like those from hohner or suzuki ) And oh, included in the price is a beautiful pouch that you can slide into your belt (I have seen this pouch itself priced around $10). Great harp and great value for money! I liked this so much that I grabbed a bunch in various keys!
Super Harmonica diatonique
jean-marc m. on 04/17/2002 Quel plaisir cet harmonica,enfin un instrument à la hauteur. Léger, solide ,un son qui a la purete d'un diamant, un son clair .Bien en main aucune difficulté à sortir les overblows. Le Torpedo mérite bien son nom ,un petit souffle et les notes sortent comme une torpille droit au but, un son harmonieux quelque soit le genre de musique joué. C'est un plaisir je recommande vivement.
Impressive reed setup
François G. on 04/19/2017 I just got my Bb Harmo Torpedo harmonica in the mailbox Here are my first thoughts about it: The forefront is smooth and the comb is not too thick It’s very easy to hold and fits nicely in my hand The overblow setup has the beneficial following effects compared to my other harmonicas : Reeds have a super fast response-time Reeds are extremely flexible I can play and bend all the notes in the high register without pushing All the bends come out very smoothly Regarding overblows I’m still working on my technique but I could get 2 3 4 5 6 right away and hold them with no squeaking Fantastic bangs for the bucks. Impressive hand made reed setup.
