Artistic and structural requirements for Low F wood harmonica
Jul 21, 2018

The performance of the Low F wood harmonica can be highly artistic. To a certain extent, its skilled performers can create a variety of effects by changing the pronunciation of the reed and the pressure of the airflow. The harmonica is mostly used for blues music and rural folk songs. It is also used in rock music. With the advent of the ultra-blowing technique of the chromatic harmonica and the 10-hole harmonica, the harmonica can also play classical music and some jazz music.


The Low F wood harmonica is the medium-flat harmonica that we often say. Its structure can be divided into upper and lower two compartments. The upper one is higher than the lower one. The alto harmonica is a special piano in the polyphonic harmonica. It is eight degrees lower than the ordinary polyphony. In addition, the other features are the same as the ordinary polyphonic harmonica. More common in the big ensemble. In the configuration of the ensemble, it is equivalent to the status of the "viola" of the orchestra. Of course, there are exceptions.


The Low F wood harmonica consumes more air than the ordinary polyphony, so it will pay more attention to the use of gas. It can be used as a symbol for distinguishing the alto harmonica and ordinary polyphony. The harmonica ensemble spectrum is often abbreviated as "Br.". The mid-range harmonica is thick and beautiful, and is an indispensable part in the harmonica ensemble. Sometimes it plays an important part in the ensemble.
