Practice with anxiety-free

SNB-48 will be released in September.2019.

SHINOBIX is the world’s first mass produced chromatic harmonica set with a silencer that we can practice without an anxiety, such as afraid of sound to family and neighborhood.

Shinobix (from Shinobu, meaning 'Stealth') is designed to lower the volume of your chromatic harmonica without affecting playablilty. This unique accessory is composed of a cover plate set which replaces your normal plates(SCX-48, S-48,G-48/G-48W) directing the tone into Suzuki's custom made Silencer. The silencer utilizes individual spiral structures for each of the 12 reed chambers; effectively reducing the sound level by around 15-20db.

Shibox for diatonic harmonica is also available. Click here.

Combines silencing effect, maintainability, and playability in one.

SHINOBIX is consisted of two parts(harmonica and a silencer) and is easy to be attached and detached. The cylindrical shape silencer has a helical structure inside and exert high silencing performance despite its small size. The easy-to-play cover shape allows you to enjoy practice without loosing the harmonica's playability.

Silencing effect

SHINOBIX exerts a greater effect when playing with strong breath, reducing the sound pressure from 80- 90dB in normal to 60 to 70dB. It can be cut around 15-20dB on average by each sound.
※This is reduced to about 20% of the sound pressure compared to the case the sound pressure of a general 10-hole and Chromatic harmonica is 100%.

Secret of silencer -10 individual inner rooms where sound is pushed into.

The conventional harmonica is connected as one big space inside. Therefore, when blocking the sound outlet such as the cover to get a silencing effect, the air flow back to the hole that is not played and the sound may leak or a different sound may be produced. SHINOBIX silencer is divided into rooms corresponding to each holes to solve it. The sound is confined to each room, and the silencing effect is exerted by pushing sound into a spiral structure. Also considering maintenance, since disassemble and cleaning is possible, it can be kept clean for use.


Replacement of harmonica body

SHINOBIX can also be used by replacing harmonica body of Suzuki chromatic harmonicas (except some models) . Therefore, it can be used by replacing the body of your favorite model.
