OVERVIEW

A traditional blues harp that's specially made for 2nd-position note bending, which gives the blues its signature sound.

The Hohner 532 Blues Harp Harmonica helps you dig in deep and experience the raw power and grit of the blues. The Blues Harp is engineered for consistent volume and tone that's ideal for intense blues playing. The Hohner Blues Harp can hang with the toughest harmonica players on their most serious gigs. The Blues Harp is highly bendable and has a dirty, dark, hard rockin' sound. One of Hohner's classic models, the 532 Blues Harp is emphasizes the best qualities of blues harmonica playing. Hohner builds the Blues Harp with a wood comb and thin reeds, allowing for easier note bending. Musicians like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Lil' Ronnie Owens of the Grand Dukes have favored the Hohner Blues Harp for its power and bluesy tone.

About MS-Series harmonicas:
The acronym 'MS' stands for Modular System, an integrated concept of Hohner's harmonica designs. MS-series harmonicas benefit from innovations that improve their playing characteristics and also significantly facilitate maintenance and handling. All MS-series parts (combs, reed plates, and covers) can be combined individually. Simple screw connections allow for easy assembly. This benefit offers players the possibility to adjust the instruments to their individual requirements. For example, some players prefer the body of one model and the cover plates of another, and so a "custom hybrid" is possible for the discerning player. Replacement reeds are available (see item: RP565 MS Replacement Reed Plates).

About Hohner:
Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.

Hohner decided to take the classic Blues Harp and "improve" on it. This harp used to be put together with nails, and was difficult to service. The case used to be a soft plastic material with snaps. Many people hate the new modular system harmonicas, but I think that they are much more practical for maintenance, and the new hard plastic case protects the instrument much better. If you still want an old-school design, buy the Marine Band. I could never see much difference between the two original models, despite claims that the Blues Harp was easier for bending notes. The new Blues Harp has retained the old pearwood comb, so if you want a truly modern model, you'll have to look for one with a plastic comb. Anyone who can hear a noticeable difference between a plastic comb and a wooden comb has a very gifted ear. Bottom line, Hohner has given its devotees several choices, and I happen to enjoy them all!

It was time to upgrade my old bent Blues Harp, the lacquer gone from wood comb. I purchased the new MS Blues Harp. The brass plates are rough on my lips, and the wood comb edges are hard on my tongue. I thought it would be a breeze to bend notes. Not so, this upgraded harp is longer, wider, fatter, and takes a LOT MORE air to get a sound. If I could return it I surely would. It's not an improvement to the original Blues Harp.

This is Hohner's response:
"Perhaps you purchased the wrong Harp for your specific needs. There's many Harps, many Hohners. As far as quality, sound, and assembly Hohner remains unmatched by industry peofessionals."

    Comments about Hohner 532 Blues Harp MS-Series Harmonica:

    This thing kills me. Really painful to play. Also takes a ton of air (and tongue skin!!). They were out of the special 20's I wanted in Bb. I've had this for only a few hours and I already hate it. Its a complete waist of my $40+.

        It's been decades since i bought a new harp; back then they always needed substantial breaking-in to get consistent, on-key bent low notes. This one played as if it had gone through all that, right out of the box.

            Comments about Hohner 532 Blues Harp MS-Series Harmonica:

            I go the A blues harp about a week ago and I just can't put it down!! To start off with the blues harp has a great tone with it's wooden comb and brass reeds. The notes are very bendable right out of the box and the harp feels really good in the hand. The blues harp also has a really good weight in my opinion, meaning that it doesn't feel that you are holding a cheap harmonica. The tone is warm and inviting and I can see why this harmonica is perfect for the blues. Now there are some negatives to every harmonica and I would have to say that the harp is not the most airtight harmonica ever but I think that it just adds to the warm tone while still going ham on a solo at a gig. The blues harp also has an edge to it. The cover plates come a little past the comb and might feel uncomfortable for the first few jams but you will get used to it and it will not be a big problem. The blues harp is fantastic with chords and soul playing but is not the best for crisp single notes if you are looking for something like that I would buy a golden melody. Over all this harmonica is up their with my favourites and it can only get better from here. I hope that this review helped you.
