Once again Suzuki has researched and developed unique professional grade harmonicas.
Utilizing the most seasoned tonewoods and unique construction technique Suzuki proudly offers a new line of harmonicas in Rosewood.
Rosewood has been sought after by top musicians from all over the globe from Classical Guitar players to top Violinists. This wood allows unique tonal qualities and when used in harmonica construction gives a warmer tone. Using Rosewood can produce a high velocity of sound and a broad range of mid and low overtones. These 'lows' help to create a complex bottom end which imparts a richness to the overall tone to the instrument. The re-designed reeds which are the heart of the instrument have been produced with the advanced player in mind.
However this new reed design makes it easier to play the instrument chromatically right out of the box!
The new Suzuki Reed plates allow ease of play especially with overblow and overdraw techniques. The MR-550 is Suzuki's newest all-hardwood Harmonica. Even the covers are Rosewood! It gives this model a rich dark and bluesy tone that will have your audience begging for more.
The richness of this instrument is unmatched and if you are looking for a traditional sound here it is!
