Chromatic harmonicas enable the player to perform music in all keys on one instrument.
Actually they consist of two diatonic harmonicas in one, tuned a semitone apart - for example in C and Csharp.
The slide button is pushed in to switch the airflow from one to the other, thus raising the pitch of each note by a semitone.
By combining these two scales, all 12 notes of the chromatic scale are available (some of them twice), which opens up a wealth of new musical options to the player.
