    I am primarily a guitarists who also plays blues harp player, using both the original Hohner Marine Band (wooden comb) and Marine Band Special 20 (plastic comb) harmonicas. Most harp players agree that the quality of the German made MB instruments is legendary. However, opinions are mixed regarding the Chinese Hohners Some of the negative reviews are well deserved.

    I saw a demonstration of a tremolo harmonica (a different brand) on YouTube and decided that I had to own at least one tremolo harp. I bought an Echo Celeste (tuned in C) because the price was reasonable and it had a neoprene case.

    I am impressed by the quality construction and great sound of the harmonica. Although made in China instead of Germany, the Echo Celeste is well built and has a nice solid feel. The tone is heavenly, with sufficient volume to be heard with other instruments.

    There is a learning curve involved in playing a 20 hole harp, but it doesn't take much practice to get a good sound out of the instrument. Always remember that you cannot honk on a tremolo harmonica the way you play a blues harp. It must be blown gently and evenly, otherwise you could damage the reeds. The Echo Celeste is designed to sound somewhat like an accordion and it does that job well.

    All things considered, the Echo Celeste is one of the best Hohner purchases you can make. Like many who have reviewed various Chinese Hohners on this web site, I am not a big fan of mass-manufactured Chinese musical instruments. However, I think the Echo Celeste is a worthwhile addition to my modest harmonica collection. I liked the C tuned model so much that I also purchased G and D models to fill out the set.

    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.

        Very happy with our purchase. They were out of stock when we ordered but we were kept informed and sent a tracking number as soon as the harmonica was shipped. Price was great and we will be a customer again here.
        Thank you Musicians Friend.

          Comments about Hohner 455 Echo Celeste Tremolo Harmonica:

          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."

                Comments about Hohner 455 Echo Celeste Tremolo Harmonica:
