Having played 10-hole diatonics all of my life, I just recently got interested in tremolo harmonicas. Most of them are rather expensive, and I never felt compelled to try them. Then I bought a used double-sided Hohner echo, and became fascinated with the tone and the way it sounds when playing folk music. But it won't fit in my harmonica rack which I use when playing guitar, because of its shape. So I thought that I would try the Celeste, after reading good reviews. I was impressed that it was solo tuned, and available in different keys. Normally I won't buy instruments made in China, but I'm glad that I did. The tone is beautiful, and the design makes it easy to take apart for repairs and cleaning. I plan to buy more, to use for certain songs that I play that would benefit from its unique effect. The only faults that I could find on my Celeste were two notes that were not quite tuned as accurately as the others, and a plastic comb that has a slight curvature (you really have to look to notice it). I would recommend this to anyone interested in trying a different type of harmonica that adds an interesting sound to the right song. It will be money well spent, and it's fun to play, with a sweet sound.

I am very disappointed with the Celeste. The 1st hole of the middle octave is very weak. This harp takes a lot of breath to play. Since I have no clue as to how to adjust reeds, I'll just have to live with it and maybe later as I become a better tremolo player the Celeste will suddenly become a better harp.

        From the middle of the second octave and higher the reeds are screechy and have very little tremolo. The harmonica, for its quality is priced fairly, but the Swan double sided (C&G) is a better buy.

              I suppose I shouldn't complain, considering the price, but, with Hohner having these made in China, the quality control is not what it should be. I have these harps in six keys. I've experienced many reed failures, and have had to learn individual reed replacement techniques, as Hohner does not do that any longer.

                            I have 3 in differing keys. The first one I purchased was "D." Notes began going flat not long after I purchased it. However, it was good enough to provoke me into buying 2 more. As a last ditch effort I took it apart. Found some stuck reeds. It works much better now but 1 or 2 reeds no longer work but they are in different notes. I use it a lot. Will probably buy another to replace it.
                            BTW, the other 2 I purchased do not show any of the same symptoms but I do not use them as often as the "D."

                            Nice instrument except for the 4 upper notes which are either dead or very difficult to get any sound.
