Harmonica Chromatic

what is the best Harmonica to get for playing Hymns?

i need some Help i would like to buy a Harmonica for like playing out of a Hymn book? does any one know a good Brand or Harmonica to Get? an Answer would be appreciated Thank~You!!

You need a full scale to play melodies like that and particularly hymns. The usual 10-hole diatonic harmonica doesn't have a full scale on the bottom of the harp - it's chords down there and an incredibly annoying missing 6th scale degree if you happen to be a folk or gospel player.

Solutions exist!

* Marine Band model 364s (the "s" is really important) has a full scale through the whole harp but is diatonic. Since most hymns are diatonic too - no problem. This one is great because it's identical to a chromatic without the sharping lever and so makes a fantastic first step to chromatic harmonica. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/hohner-marine-band-364-soloist-diatonic-harmonica/421504000806000 A fantastic harmonica.

* Suzuki and Huang tremolo harmonicas and the Hohner Echo Celeste are solo-tuned such that they too have a full scale through the whole harp. They're also really sweet sounding for hymn playing alone. such as http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/suzuki-2-timer-tremolo-harmonica

* Chromatic: A chromatic harmonica will give you all of the notes of the scale through the whole range of the harp. Perfect for playing things like hymns and melodies but also more difficult to learn and a bit costlier. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/hohner-270-super-chromonica-chromatic-harmonica a fabulous chromatic model used by many pros - and over $150.

That said, it's possible to play hymns on any harmonica. You'll just have to adapt to the scale it has. For example, a 10-hole diatonic (Marine Band, Special 20, Blues Harp, Lee Oskar, etc) has a full one octave scale between 4-7 that meets the needs of an awful lot of tunes and a 10-hole diatonic is cheap compared to the ideas above. If I were buying for someone who told me they wanted to play hymns on harmonica, I'd buy them a Hohner Echo Celeste in C. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/hohner-455-echo-celeste-tremolo-harmonica It's easy enough to go from that to a better Tremolo or to Chromatic.

PS: for clarity: Diatonic means it's like a piano with no black keys. To play in different keys (there are 12) you need different harmonicas. Chromatic means it has all of the black and white keys of a piano on one harmonica.
