The jazz harmonica can be either a diatonic harmonica or a chromatic harmonica. This implies that they have a diatonic scale, with a three-octave range. On the diatonic harmonica  the Jazz player uses overbending and bending techniques in order to achieve a full chromatic scale on his harmonica. When bending the player lowers one of the reed in order to get the missing note. In the chamber, the blow and draw reeds vibrate faster for higher pitched note whereas for lower notes the reed vibrates slowly. Overbending involves the player isolating the higher of the two reeds making it possible to play an even higher pitched note. Using this two skills, a player can play the entire chromatic scale on a diatonic harmonica. The result of these techniques is that more harmonicas players paved the way for jazz music and the instrument they use is often referred to as jazz harmonicas.
