Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0042598A1] The invention concerns a mechanism adjusted to the chromatic harmonica and pushes the blot, consisting by a system of sliding parts and a system of levers in combination. The mechanism is activated with the help of the jaw. The invention solves the problem that faces the musician who wants to play at the same time with chromatic harmonica or the diatonic one and the accompaniment instrument such as guitar, piano, etc. There are two other variations of the mechanism. The first variation is used for the creation of a vibrato (sound vibration) for the harmonica. At the second variation is adapted a pair of diatonic harmonica. Both activated with the help of the jaw.
