- Fantastic sound
- Sturdy construction
- Reliable for performance use
- The high cost of this harmonica puts it out of reach to most beginning and intermediate players
- Several less expensive harps can produce similar sound quality
The Suzuki Sirius series features 12-hole, 14-hole, and 16-hole chromatic harmonicas. The smaller two have straight slide alignment, while the 16-hole has cross slide alignment. Their metal plated bodies are solid and have some weight to them, and they are assembled with screws for easy maintenance. The tone that each one produces is rich and full. The straight alignment versions also have a warmer tone, which makes them good for playing jazz pieces. The only major problem with these models is the price. It's definitely not justifiable for the average person. However, if you are a professional musician, these are great mouth harps to have with you at your performances.
