This harmonica has a unique tuning fork that suits "vamping" and other chord games commonly used in rock or blues. The design, based on the input of professional players, offers an unmistakable feeling of support with a clear sound and an extra-wide hood for extraordinary sound projection. The "old-fashioned" hood openings project the sound for both the listener and the performer.
The back, meanwhile, is fully open and is designed to diffuse in multiple angles. Large "gills" are also provided on the side, allowing the artist to control his own volume. With its resin comb, the Continental Type-1 resists moisture and heat. Its phosphor bronze blades are laser tuned.
The British Green color of the hood is in stainless coating, which varies the color subtly according to the angle of view. This finish differs slightly between the units, making each Vox Continental 1 harmonica unique.
