      OVERVIEW

      A smoothly curved, diatonic harp with a 1950's look that features equal-tempered tuning, making it ideal for playing melodies.

      The Hohner Golden Melody harmonica has an attractive 1950s look thanks to its rounded shape and closed-sided, full-length covers. An especially airtight harmonica with a strong, full-bodied sound, the Golden Melody is the only Hohner diatonic harp with equal-tempered tuning, which makes it especially suitable for melody playing.

      Curved cover plates extend the entire length of the Golden Melody harmonica, providing increased resonant capacity. With a comfortably curved shape, the Golden Melody harmonica's smooth, rounded corners fit nicely into the palms of your hands as you play. Hohner sets the Golden Melody harmonica's reeds close to the open-framed mouthpiece, so it responds to the subtlest of commands-making the Golden Melody perfect for overblowing as well as for bending. You'll find taht the Golden Melody's sound is unique in its class with a slightly different tuning that produces full, rich, melodic tone.

      Although it's a favorite harmonica among gospel and hymn players on Sunday mornings, the Golden Melody can definitely hold its own in the blues bar the night before. The Hohner Golden Melody harmonica is a favorite of great harpists such as Pierre Lacocque of Mississippi Heat, jazz virtuoso Howard Levy, and Levy's renowned Cuban-Canadian student, Carlos Del Junco. Its unique design, coupled with an airtight, dark red, plastic body sets the 10-hole Golden Melody harmonica apart. Its equal-temperament tuning makes the Hohner Golden Melody a natural for country music. And there's no doubt that your Golden Melody is the harmonica that can bring down the house on blues and rock numbers.

      I teach harp and gig regularly and the Golden Melody is the latest in a long line of harps I've tried. I consider them to be consistently the best out the box, along with Hohner Crossover. They are a great shape, very airtight, and seem to require the least adjustment out the box of any harps I've tried so far, I've bought harps 2x the price that have had greatly inferior quality control that I've had to set right. As proclaimed they are great for overblows, to the point i'm incorporating overblows much more into my style thanks to the Golden Melody. A minor drawback is they take a long time to break the reeds in, they can be very stiff to bend for the first few weeks, but if you treat them nice and gentle for that period the reeds seem to last forever.

      I bought a few harmonicas, but I did not play any as much as I played my two Golden Melody harps in the key of A and D. The tone and flexability of play were truly wonderful.

      However, over the years I've discovered some negative qualities that I feel may counter my praises. The reeds of these Golden Melody harmonicas tend to stick more often than my other harmonicas. When I first take them out of the package I always gently flex the reeds, and after playing regularly take apart my harmonicas to clean them.

      On my Golden Melody harmonica in the key of A I found that the 5th draw reed became irreversibly jammed. First it dropped from playing it's G note to only playing a C#, and then it became completely unplayable. I tried to coax it loose, but found that I couldn't get it to play a note at all.

      My primary complaint now that I retrurn to MF to order a new one is that I feel the price does not reflect the quality. I really want a new Golden Melody, but I don't want it to break down again.

        I have three of these in the key of C,G, and D. These fit my hands better and seem easier to play. The tone is not as warm as I would like but maybe that is my lack of experience. I haven't had to take these apart and clean them. The higher notes are easier to get right. This is the harp I prefer.

                  Comments about Hohner 542 Golden Melody Harmonica:

                  I'm a beginner but have tried several different brands of harmonicas. I have also done reed adjustments on my harmonicas with good success in getting them to play better.

                  With that said, I really like the feel and clear tone of the Golden Melody. It does have a brighter sound compared to my other harps, but this is a personal preference so you would have to judge for yourself. I bought just a C harp to see if I like the GM and am now thinking about purchasing the full range of keys.

                  Compared to the harps I've purchased so far, the GM was the easiest to play out of the box for bending and the notes were all the closest in tune. I also like how the cover plates seal the sides and have a center back support built in.

                  I would recommend the GM. Very nice instrument.

                    Hi, I'm a 50+ Year Guitar Player, Song Writer, Singer, and have played a few Harmonicas over the Years, But this Hohner Golden Melody is a pure Pleasure to Hold and to Play, the lines are Smooth, no rough edges, The Sound is Rich and Warm. The Play is as Easy as breathing great Product. I recommend this Harmonica and Will buy other of this Style again soon. The Shipping was fast and packaged very well.

                        For the price this is a very consistent harp. Hohner has been putting out a great product for the past few years and for the money this harp can't be beat. I play a lot of different harmonicas including customs, I carry the Golden Melody in the keys that are rarely played and when those keys do come up I am often amazed at how good this harmonica plays.

                        I ordered on Mon., paid 2 days shipping and had the package on my doorstep Wed. The 'A' harp had a loose cover screw. It's factual... I have a screw loose.... The case was in a box with bubble wrap and that was in a larger box stuffed with crumpled brown wrapping paper. Excellent packaging. I will be playing Thurs. My last Thurs. and Sat. gigs left me feeling naked without them. I dislike thieves... The sympathetic email response is why I chose MUSICIAN'S FRIEND for purchasing!!!!

                            I play everything from blues to bluegrass; it's a very versatile harp, and I have several. This one to replace one that was worn out (I guess). I haven't used anything else since I bought my first one years ago.
