This reliable workhorse offers Hohner's highest standard of German quality. Featuring a 10-hole, airtight, plastic body for increased volume, an open-ended cover for sound projection, and contoured covers that are comfortable to hold, the Hohner 590 Big River harmonica really delivers the sound you seek.

      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. Easy-to-install 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 has a winner with their Big River harp. They offer many different models of harmonicas, and the Big River is German made with a modest price tag compared to most of their others. It has a plastic comb and is put together with screws for ease of maintenance. The covers and comb have support pillars, which is a nice feature if you've ever accidently crushed a harmonica. The design is of the new Modular System, which allows you to swap out reed plates if desired. Frankly, at the current price, I would just buy a new one if needed. A hard plastic protective case is provided, with a good design for air circulation. The right end of the harp is painted with the letter of the key, and the back of the comb is painted with the name Hohner. These two features give a quick reference as to orientation when you pick it up to play at a gig. Just don't clean the letters with alcohol, as they do come off (I found out the hard way). The notes on mine are tuned as accurately as most Hohners, and the tonal quality is quite good. This model is one of the best bargains in the diatonic harmonica world. Highly recommended!

        The sound is full and in tune, the construction feels solid; after all it is made in Germany. However, this is the 3rd or 4th harmonica in this line that only lasted a few months. As I mentioned, I am NOT a hardcore heavy user, so I expected a lot longer life out of these instruments. I hope to find another option that will last longer. I wish someone would offer a solid intermediate harmonica that wouldn't break the bank--somewhere in between the current offerings of crap and high-end.
        I am a full-time live singer-guitarist who only plays harmonica on a handful of songs during my gigs. The Big River series seemed at first like a real step up from the cheap harmonicas I had been using (Jambone, etc.) but it has been a disappointment.

          Comments about Hohner 590 Big River MS-Series Harmonica:

          This is a good practice harp. Overall it's ok for the price but it's the second one that I bought and both of them have a couple of dead notes. I may have to adjust the reeds on them to get a full sound. Not bad for the price but if you can afford it-go for the Special 20 or the Golden Melody.

            Obviously if you're a pro, you're gonna want something of high quality.

            As for just playing here and there and the occansional accompaniment, this harmonica is perfect.

              Great blow for the buck. Costs a little less than the Lee Oskar, but I think it has a better feel and better tone. I only wish that instead of getting a multi-page advertisement and an insert on tuning alternatives, that there would just be some "harmonica basics" for a beginner like myself, maybe even a song or two tabbed, and a scale of the actual harmonica purchased

                  Comments about Hohner 590 Big River MS-Series Harmonica:

                  My favorite harps are Hohner Special 20s but, with the significant rise in price of the better quality harps, I have reached a compromise and have been purchasing the Big River harps. While not as warm or easy to play as the Special 20s (or the Lee Oskars), you get a decent sound and playability with these harps for a much lower cost.

                  I personally find these easier to play than the Hohner Pro Harps and Golden Melodies - I don't like the Pro Harps finish and the Golden Melody harps are narrow, making it more difficult to form an airtight seal with the lips, especially when using a brace.

                  An added bonus is you can replace the reeds with MS replacement plates.

                      I've been playing blues over 30 years. I've tried every kind Honner has come out plus Lee Oscar. Due to the fast increase in the price of harps and me being hard on them I trued the Big River. For amplified blues harp you can't beat the value because you still get a rich sound and easy to bend notes with also. The price is right for me to keep spares of all the keys I carry.

                          Sounds good, feels solid but does not last long

                          The sound is full and in tune, the construction feels solid; after all it is made in Germany. However, this is the 3rd or 4th harmonica in this line that only lasted a few months. As I mentioned, I am NOT a hardcore heavy user, so I expected a lot longer life out of these instruments. I hope to find another option that will last longer. I wish someone would offer a solid intermediate harmonica that wouldn't break the bank--somewhere in between the current offerings of crap and high-end.
                          I am a full-time live singer-guitarist who only plays harmonica on a handful of songs during my gigs. The Big River series seemed at first like a real step up from the cheap harmonicas I had been using (Jambone, etc.) but it has been a disappointment.

                          Comments about Hohner 590 Big River MS-Series Harmonica:

                          These are good harps.I have them in keys of G-C-D & D low,this covers most of the music I play For me.they are best for practice as they sound as close to the Marine Bands as you can get.I do use Marine Bands when playing out or @ our jam sessions.Have played these for 2yrs. now & only blew out 1 in G,so I would recomend them highly.However you just can't beat the sound & durability of the Marine Bands [I still have 3 in their old paper box that play well after 30yrs],that's the only harp that I'll use when you want to be at your best.
