364S Soloist

More Info: Taken from Pat Missins site. The typical 10-hole Richter harmonica uses a tuning that omits certain notes in the upper and lower octaves, as well as giving the same note on both 2 draw and 3 blow, in order to allow chordal accompaniment in the lowest range of the harp. One of the oldest variations on this layout is the so-called Solo Tuning, patented by in 1907 by William Benjamin Yates, of Alviso, California. This is a tuning that places a complete diatonic scale in each octave of the harmonica and is currently the most common tuning used on chromatics. There have been a variety of solo tuned diatonics made over the years, but there are only a few currently in production. Most of them are 12-hole harmonicas, including the Hohner Marine Band 364S
