Let's face it. Harmonicas are consumable instruments. They're only going to last so long before one of the reeds goes bad. Yes, I know that Hohner's MS series has replaceable reeds, and I've tried that, but for the difference in price it's not work it. So the quest for an inexpensive, decent harp is always hanging out there. When I saw this harp advertised, with the Fender logo on it, I thought, let's give it a try.
First of all, it's made in China. It compares favorably to the Hohner Blues Bender, at about 60% of the price. I tried the key of C. Out of the box it was in tune, tone was decent. Seems airtight. Notes bend OK. I tried it side by side with the Blues Bender, and can't tell much of a difference in sound or playability. This harp is definitely better than the Hohner Hot Metal harps I've had for the same price.
There are some differences. The cover plates for the Fender are a bit deeper, so theoretically you'd expect a slightly bigger tone. I didn't hear a difference. The holes for the Fender are as wide as those for the Blues Bender, but those of the BB are slightly taller. The Fender has more of a gap in the corners of the cover plates, but that doesn't seem to affect playability.
So I'm going to take this to a couple of gigs to see if the reeds blow out too quickly. On the other hand, I've bought a Golden Melody that had a bad 6 blow hole out of the box, and have had Special 20's blow out a reed after just a couple gigs. And don't even get me started on Lee Oskars.
Overall I would give this harp a 4 out of 5 and recommend it for beginners, backup and practice. It may get upgraded to gig after playing it for awhile.

Very terrible quality. I got this harmonica and the first day i got it one of the holes started going mute. And i had to blow in a bunch to get it to work again, and it happens every few minutes. Then the next day the reeds started going flat. So now i can't play with my guitar unless i tune it flat...

    Comments about Fender Blues Deluxe Harmonica:

    Just got 2 of these today, one in Bb and one in A to have back ups to my Special 20 Bb and my Bushman A and Blues Harp A (both have a little age on them) have only played these Fenders for about a half hour each, but so far, NO complaints. All holes blow and draw like they should and the tone if it's not right on is definitely close enough. Maybe not as airtight as a higher priced GOOD harp, but not bad IMO. Bending isn't too bad no problems on hole 1 or 2 - so far have only been able to get one bend out of 3 and 4 though on either harp, but i'm sure I will - holes 5-10 are fine, have not practiced any over blows yet want to break them in easy to be honest. in short - I like these - maybe I got lucky, who knows, but I have had NONE of the problems I have seen mentioned on some other reviews (dead holes leaky etc) - In summary, yes - these are fine to learn on and I would say they are fine for a back-up or ones to keep in the car. For a low cost harp - you could do a lot worse. I will update if in a few weeks they have turned into leaky, dead holed squawking monstrosities, but I don't see that happening

        I have always wanted to learn to play but could never afford a decent harmonica. I found this one here and after reading the reviews decided to take a chance. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. For a cheap harmonica it isn't cheaply built. Very good craftsmanship for the money and a great deal for someone wanting to learn to play.

                      I won't go into all the nuances that a full time blues harpist would cite - I just bought it to put on a rack, Dylan style, for some acoustic stuff. It's a s good as I remember the Honers, back in the day, before they all cost ten times what they used to!

                      I'll probably buy a couple more, now that I know they are quality built.

                              I have a set of Special 20s, but wanted other keys. I've tried other cheapies, and although these Blues Deluxes aren't Special 20s, they are way up there! Since their airtightness and bendablity is high, I've been giving these Blues Deluxes as gifts to kids (and adults) who are interested. I figure that is an instrument that they can easily learn to bend on... and if they like it, they can decide if they want to move on to a set of Special 20s. Can't beat the price for a good instrument to learn on!
