OVERVIEW

You'll love the distinguished, matt-black finish plus the distinctive sound of this MS-Series harmonica.

The Hohner 562 Pro Harp is crafted with matte-black Greblon-coated* covers that give this harmonica an unmistakable appearance. The 560 Pro's airtight, black body brings a distinctive, non-traditional look to the harmonica, while its sound and performance are unmistakably the traditional Hohner standard.

About Hohner 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 Hohner MS-series harmonica parts (combs, reed plates, and covers) can be combined individually. Simple screw connections allow for easy assembly. This benefit offers harp players the ability to adjust their harmonicas to their individual requirements. For example, some players prefer the body of one harmonica and the cover plates of another, and so a "custom hybrid" is possible for the discerning harp 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.

* Greblon is used as a non-stick coating for cookware.

FEATURES
  • 10-hole diatonic
  • Standard (Richter) tuning
  • Reeds: 20
  • Reedplates: brass; 0.9 mm
  • Plastic comb
  • Length: 10 cm

    This harmonica was a major disapointment because of the sharp edges and the mediocre sound. Henceforth I will stick with Special 20's. For those who don't mind a mediocre sound, I would suggest you buy one of the Bluesband multi-harp kits. You can get several harps for the price of one of these, and they don't have the sharp edges.
    The brass plate between the cover and comb has sharp edges and is hard on the lips.
    Honestly, I played this side by side with a Bluesband model and can't tell the difference.
    Okay, so if it plays and sounds like a Bluesband but costs six times as much, it's hard to say that this harmonica is a good value.

      Comments about Hohner 562 Pro Harp MS-Series Harmonica:

      I'd avoid the Pro Harp harmonica. It is essentially a metal Marine Band. I find that while the tone is good, and it sounds great going through an amplifier, it is hard to play. I find that the holes are not airtight; there is more than a little leakage. Add to that the troubles of poor quality control at the Hohner factory, making the reed plates and the cover plates not align correctly. Lastly, I find that the reeds are not very responsive, that is, it takes a lot of air to push through them to get a note. It just feels clunkier. Once you are jamming and wailing out your solos and fills, you are ok. But for me, I'll avoid buying another one of these, even at sale prices. Special 20 or Lee Oskar are far better bets for smooth, responsive playing.

        I used to like Delta Frost harmonicas but they don't seem to be making those any more. These Hohner Pros are great too. They don't blow out on me like Marine Bands and Special 20s sometimes do. Tone is typical Hohner quality.

              Their slogan " JUST BREATHE" to me is verry mis leading . I get a number of people , that wan't to learn to play as I do , but find it verry frustrating .There is a lot more to playing , than just breathe . I play mostly in 2nd possition , and rarely go to 1st . My background in B flat brass , has helped me to hear what , before I do . The cord structure of the song presented ,and trying to play is simple for someone , that understands the Key , and cords of the instrument .

              I have found that since purchasing and Now using several PRO MS models... I like to play the SPECIAL 20 more, tough I like the look and feel of the PRO MS.
              I really like the appearence and fit to the hand
              Haven't found a manufacturer I like better
              Not one who repairs, but replaces Harps... it can get costly when several are needed...

              from Palm Springs Ca

              Comments about Hohner 562 Pro Harp MS-Series Harmonica:

              I have been playing special 20's for years. I like the plastic comb and really love the sound but the protruding brass plate is a bit uncomfortable. The nice thing about that is the harp is easy to work on if your doing a gig and you lose a reed. For the money I will just stick with my special 20's and carry enouigh back ups I don't need to work on them.
              nice look and balance.
              come on its a honer.
              not worth the extra money.
