If you’re looking for something that can give you an extended range, your options can be a bit more limited—and you’ll need to have a much bigger budget. The Super 64X is definitely aimed at professional musicians. It has a sound, build, and look to match the price. It’s the top choice if you’re looking for a high-end model.

This is a chromatic harp with a full 16 holes, and that bigger size is what gives it its increased range. It has double-thick reeds that are more durable and easier to bend than most. They’re responsive and musical, making them great for players in more complex genres, like jazz. Every note is precisely tuned and has a sweet, melodic tone that’s perfect for soloists.

The Super 64X is gorgeous to look at, too. The black lacquered case is elegant with the gold mouthpiece. The milled Plexiglas of the comb is clear, letting you see the reeds within—a nice touch both from an appearance and a practicality standpoint. The exterior build isn’t just about the looks, either. It’s comfortable to hold and easy on your lips. While adjusting to a larger harp might take time if you’ve never had a four-octave model before, it’s well-balanced and fun to play once you’re used to it.

If you’re going to spend this much on an instrument it needs to last a while, and the Super 64X has the durability to do just that. Not only will the reeds last twice as long as typical brass reeds. These instruments are consistently well-built, model to model. The reeds are completely airtight, so you can get a bigger tone with less effort. You can tell just when you hold it that this harmonica will keep playing great for years, even with daily use.
