I play the harmonica diatonic, mostly traditional Irish.

I was eyeing for some time on the chromatic harmonica to have who can play in all keys to avoid history walk off with several harmonicas in my pockets. After some research I finally remember what model.

Feature:
Key: C
15.8 cm long (including dashes) 3.5 wide and 2.5 in thickness.
Weight: 167 gr.

It comes in a cardboard box covered with brown paper inside a piece of fabric color purple, as a case we've seen better. Tombo also provided a cloth handy.

I play the harmonica diatonic, mostly traditional Irish.

I was eyeing for some time on the chromatic harmonica to have who can play in all keys to avoid history walk off with several harmonicas in my pockets. After some research I finally remember what model.

Feature:
Key: C
15.8 cm long (including dashes) 3.5 wide and 2.5 in thickness.
Weight: 167 gr.

It comes in a cardboard box covered with brown paper inside a piece of fabric color purple, as a case we've seen better. Tombo also provided a cloth handy.

The Tombo Folk Young is a color design 17 holes but a special one as it has no valve and we can only play one note per cell + a 2 ° by operating the zipper instead of 2 + 2 for a standard color.

The arrangement of notes is the following: D c F e A g B c D e F g A c B c D and D # C # F # F A # g # C c # D # F F # G # A # C # C f D # by operating the zipper, 2 octaves, more than enough for me who plays the celtic.

All the notes I made tiny souffles are being sucked into the other is a characteristic of the harp, he works at the blast as a tremolo, you can not suck and blow into one hole, d Besides the mattress and the plates are designed just like a tremolo, it has just added a mouth and a zipper on the front to separate the two rooms.

There are two other models of the same gender, with an octave Tombo Unica and Unica more formal arrangement with a slightly different notes.

On the lid is inscribed Young Folk basically just below in smaller Tombo harmonicas, the holes are not numbered which I regret a bit because it may be convenient to locate, especially since this harmonic is initially planned for beginners. The bottom cover is exactly the same as above.

The brass plates are fixed with three screws at the rear, two front on each end plus the two screws that hold the two covers.

Maintenance is easy because everything is screwed, that being said, since it has no valve there will be no need to remove all 4 mornings.

The mattress is maroon color plastic.

As always with Tombo construction is pretty neat and all looks good.

The slide is good without being outstanding but you really wet by playing covers before cons we feel much the gate of the mouth which scrapes a bit on the lips because of the rounded edges too. Problem can be solved with a light sanding I think.

It's never easy to describe the sound of a harmonica, but compared to some of my plastic body diatonic folk Young is doing not so bad but are not as expressive, brilliant and relatively mild overall. I was expecting something cooler since it is one color but in fact it's been quite hot.

Another pleasant surprise is the FY flexible and very responsive to play a fantastic opportunity for the Irish trad.

The hardest thing about the harmonica is getting used to the alternation blow / draw notes to play especially when you are like me get used to playing on diatonic, there must be some adjustment period, I noticed it was better to play by taking two tongue blocking holes, like a tremolo, the game will be greatly facilitated.

Because of its design alterations are possible, but it was not designed for that.

If I had to find an adjective for FY I think the word "fun" it would be fine, it's really nice to play a harmonica, without the fuss, a harmonica halfway between the diatonic and chromatic level sound and functioning much like a tremolo.

I take off two points because of the lack of numbering of holes, sliding over the hood that is not optimum, the mouth a little Rapant on the lips and the cardboard box a little cheap, which acts but in case it's all the detail and it does not diminish the qualities of the harp.

I paid 85 Euros including postage but in general it is found rather in the vicinity of 90/100 Dollars. At that price it's really a matter of great value for anyone who wants to learn the chromatic harmonica without the disadvantages of valves or who did not want s'enquiquiner with alterations / overblow a diatonic. An excellent model that should be a little more known.
