Review Summary:

The Hohner Golden Melody is unique among the Hohner harmonicas because it is their only diatonic model that uses a tuning method called equal tempering. That type of tuning makes playing melodies much easier. Another fun thing about the Golden Melody is that it has a red plastic comb and full length covers, giving it a retro look. Even though this harmonica has a retro look, there's nothing retro about how it works. Hohner has used the best components to create a reliable harmonica with a good volume and a fast response time. It's perfect for beginners that are a little more on the serious side. It's also available in several different keys for those that like to experiment.


  • Wonderful for playing melodies
  • Reeds can be offset to make it a great overblowing harp
  • Nice for learning to bend


  • No real cons on this harp. If you're a beginner looking for a harmonica to help you learn to play the blues try the Hohner Special 20 (that said... this harp is also great for learning to bend).
