Toots Hard Bopper - "Feel best in that little space between a smile and a tear."
The grand old man of harmonica jazz, Jean "Toots" Thielemans is one of the most widely recorded artists on the chromatic harmonica. He has also composed numerous pieces for the instrument.
Conceived as an homage to the elder statesman of harmonica jazz and designed in close cooperation with the master himself, the two models of this series reflect the musical demands of the discerning jazz chromonica player. Thicker plates and long slot reeds give this instrument a full, powerful sound with the fast response needed for jazz and rock.
All models of the Toots Thielemans Signature Series are individually numbered.
