The Hering Super Gig 20 is a low-end diatonic harmonica that is mostly meant for beginners, but it is still a fairly high quality for the price. It has steel covers and a plastic comb, making it look a little less professional, but it still sounds good. It plays smooth chords. However, the reed plates are thinner than average and the reeds may need to be replaced fairly quickly. This particular harp is only available in the key of C, which is another indication that it is a beginner's model. So, serious musicians should look at other models, but it's a decent harp for someone who is only looking to learn slowly or play for friends and family.
