      That sounds like the going retail store rate for a Special 20 Bryan. So no worries, my price wouldn’t have been a huge difference….go ahead and use it and enjoy it. I hope you can make the best of what you have available, and keep happy harp in’. jp

    The Ring Of Fire/ Are this harmonica numbers notes to exhale(blow)? Which hole numbers are inhale notes?

      The blow (exhale) notes are the regularly written numbers. The draw (inhale) notes are the numbers with a – in front of them. A note written as 5 means blow in hole five. A note written -5 means to draw through hole five.
