Reedplates: Extra Thick Reedplates are used in the Fabulous to match the superlative tonal qualities of the brass body. Thick reedplates increase stability and give enhanced response to each reed. The extra rigidity of the thick reedplates allows a perfectly flat finish that adheres firmly to the body, to ensure maximum airtightness. All this adds up to feather-light reed response and a luxuriant, rich tone.
Cover Plates: Silver-plated Coverplates finish off the elegant appearance of the Fabulous. But they are practical too, as silver-plating is well known to give optimum lubrication in the mouth, ensuring players lips don't stick while performing extended passages. Suzuki's all-new artistic design for the coverplates is also comfortable and secure to hold. Specifications:

The world famous professional chromatic harmonica soloist Koei Tanaka says: "I found true pianissimo and fortissimo for the first time in my life with the Fabulous. The Fabulous allows players an overwhelming music-expression ability. It is striking that this harmonica's sound is smooth, sexy, deep and sweet, so from the first sound it has a special mood! We have entered an era when the harmonica is no longer a disposable instrument! The more you play the Fabulous, the better it sounds; fabulously! I'm so happy to meet a lifelong harmonica companion. Fabulous! I love it!!"
