Great for Professionals and Beginners! Great Tone! Great for learning to Bend! Bang for the buck, this is my personal favorite instrument by a long shot. It’s the harmonica I use and it’s the instrument that makes it easiest for beginners to learn to bend. You’ll need to spend 2 to 5 times the money on other brands of harmonicas to match its performance.
From the Manufacturer:
Hohner’s diatonic harmonicas set the industry standard through their high quality construction, excellent response and unsurpassed tone. Often called “Blues Harps”, they have been a fixture as melody and accompaniment instruments in blues, rock, country, and folk bands, as well as many other styles of music and musical ensembles. Richter tuning and undivided air channels allow for bending and overblowing the reeds, creating the signature wailing sound typical of the harmonica.
Classic Line: Traditional values. Modern innovation.
This is the essence of the Classic line — traditional values and cutting edge technology. Extremely precise tools minimize air loss and ensure a quicker response and bigger volume. As always, each Classic harmonica is exclusively handmade.
Special 20: Great tone and comfort
Durable plastic comb with recessed reed plates for playing comfort. The stable, airtight construction and full sound make the Special 20 one of the most popular diatonic models.
