OVERVIEW

A favorite known for its great tone.

Awesome response, superior bendability and the sweetest tone ever. This harp is the first choice for those learning to play. Its special airtight design makes it the most recommended go-to harp for harmonica players of any style, including blues, country, folk or rock. The plastic comb doesn't absorb moisture making it longer lasting. Harp of choice of harmonica virtuoso John Popper (of Blues Traveler) and played by Bob Dylan on his 2007/08 tour. The Hohner 560/20 Special 20 Harmonica Pack with Case and Belt includes all natural keys (listed from lowest to highest): G, A, B, C, D, E, and F. The case is constructed of high-impact ABS plastic with a solid aluminum valance, creating maximum protection for your Hohner harmonicas, while still being lightweight. Holds up to 12 diatonics and one chromatic. 12-3/8" x 10-1/2" x 2-3/4". The belt provides quick, easy access to your Special 20 harps and helps organize keys during performance. Made of strong vinyl with 6 stretch pockets, a cushioned back, and a quick-release side buckle. Fits waists from 29" to 48".

  • Quality Craftsmanship
  • Rich Sound

Cons

  • Harp Keys Hard To See

Best Uses

  • Straight Or Cross Harp

Comments about Hohner 560/20 Special 20 Harmonica Pack with Case and Belt:

If you need multiple harps and a nice big case this is a deal. The harp belt is pretty good if you are too mobile to have your case with you.

    Comments about Hohner 560/20 Special 20 Harmonica Pack with Case and Belt:

    This is a tough review to sum up easily, as all parts must be taken into account. As far as the harmonicas go, 5 stars. You get the consistent playability, sound and craftsmanship of a Special 20 in a great bundle deal (made even better if you get it with Black Friday savings). If you need further review of the instrument, I refer you to the hundreds of reviews on the specific instrument page. The only con associated with the harmonicas would be the fact that I did NOT receive individual hard cases as pictured, which means I'll have to improvise storage when I change up the case arrangement.

    The case itself is a 1 star product. The shell is a flexible plastic of the sort that is unlikely to age well. Any undue pressure or impact is likely to cause cracking and/or the popping of rivets used to attach the hinges and clasps. The clasps themselves are none too sturdy, and they extend below the bottom plane of the case, making accidental unclasping a regular occurrence. The metal trim does not join well, giving an ill-fitted close. On the other hand, the foam inside seems pretty decent. Bottom line on the case: It functions to store and conveniently tote ~12 harps, but don't expect much more.

    The belt is functional, if not the epitome of style. The elastic holds well, and it is not difficult to remove a harp when you need one. The facing material is vinyl-based, so time will tell how well it stands up to the corners of the harps digging into it when sliding them back in. It also does not appear to be of great quality, but I must admit ignorance when it comes to professional standards of harmonica belts, so I'll let those observations stand as they are.

    Bottom line: If you want/need the full major key set of Special 20's and you plan on buying them all yourself, you can save some money getting them in this bundle (maybe try to angle for some hard cases though). The extras are a plus in that you can get some use out of them, but they seem to be of the "get what you pay for" ilk.

    Special 20 bending

    By Bopo1939

    Comments about Hohner 560/20 Special 20 Harmonica Pack with Case and Belt:

    I have had several Hohners and always loved the workability of the Marine Band. Once I tried the Special 20, I was hooked. Bends very well.

    The harmonica pack is a great value.I've playing harp professionally for many years.My regular scale inventory needed replacing so I opted for the Special 20 Pack.I was very pleased with the product.Also, I sewed an old glasses case to the belt to hold my 64 Chromatic which I also purchased from Musicians Friend.I have found that they have the all round best pricing and fast delivery.
