Golden Melody Harmonicas

Built to Order 
Custom Hohner Golden Melody

Built to Order Custom Harmonicas are built according to your exact specifications.  You choose the Brand, Model, Key, Comb Material, Comb Color, Tuning and Set-up.  Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.  If you want or need a harp sooner than 6-8 weeks, please visit our Ready-to-Go Custom Harps page where you will find a wide variety of the most popular models and keys.  These harps are available for immediate shipping.

The Hohner Golden Melody is reportedly the first harmonica Hohner ever built that is tuned to Equal Temperment.  As the name implies, the Golden Melody was designed to play melodies, and is the harmonica of choice for many Blues, Rock, Gospel, Country, Blue Grass and Folk Musicians.  

Our Blue Moon Custom Golden Melodys feature one of our Custom CNC Milled Combs and possibly a set of covers that has been Powder Coated or Hydrographcially Printed to add some more style.  


The Standard Set-up for our harmonicas is a "Blues Set-up".  These harmonicas are designed for playing Traditional Blues, Rock, Country, Gospel and Folk music.  They feature the following upgrades:

  • Installation of a Custom Blue Moon Comb
  • Draw Plate flat sanded 
  • Covers opened in the back
  • Gaps adjusted for optimum response
  • Reed profiles checked and shaped if necessary
  • Tuned to Equal Temperament @ A=442Hz (alternate tunings available upon request)

Our Standard Blues Set-up is the harmonica of choice for most players.  These harps are airtight, responsive, in tune, very comfortable in your hands and on your lips and tongue.  Although we don't promote them as "Overblow Harps", it very easy to Overblow the 4, 5 and 6 on these harps (assuming you know how to overblow).  If you want a full blown custom harp that can be played chromatically by use of Overblows and Overdraws, this will require an extensive amount of additional reed work and customization. Consequently, there is an additional charge to produce such a harmonica.
