I read quite a few of the negative reviews about this set here, but for the very affordable price I figured I'd take a chance anyway.

The case is beautiful, hard shell covered by what appears to be some sort of corduroy, velvet lining... Probably worth the price alone. The seven harmonicas are clearly marked in large letters with their individual keys, which really helps a beginner on the harmonica like me. The case also holds them very securely.

Just one problem... As I've read in some of the reviews here, one harmonica had three dead low notes (A-key). I emailed Hohner, they just asked to send back proof of purchase, and they're sending me a replacement free of charge. They didn't even ask me to return the defective one. Wow, great customer service.

Anyway, these are working great for me in my home studio, where I can tweak audio as necessary. But, I haven't had to do that yet, as their musical keys seem to be right on the money.

I probably wouldn't use them to perform live, but for my studio purposes with a bit of reverb and delay this is a great set. Would definitely buy again.

I should have known from the price..as a 30 year player I got less then I paid for.
These harps are badly manufactered on every level.
Air leaks,buzzing reeds,sharp cover plates,and a very cheap feel.tinny tone,and unplayable higher scale.Spend your money wisely..Marine Band ,Special 20's,Susuki "Manji's" or Lee Oskars. Hohner should be embarrassed to have their name on these garbage Chinese made harmonica look a likes... and shame on Musician's Friend for even selling them . I did carry some faith in this Company.. Live and Learn ,huh? Cheers from Canada

You get what you pay for

Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

meh.
These harps will make noise, but it's a crap shoot about which holes work.

I purchased this set afterwards, and it's so much nicer. Better than night and day, but I wish it had 7 harps like the set1501.

If you need quality, then get the special 20 set.
The case is nice.

Save your money, Don't

Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

After reading a few reviews from 'players' that weren't too bad, I thought I'd try these but I also bought a 'real' one to compare. I received the package - nice zipped carry box - I pulled out the same key as the 'real' one and blew it! OMG! What a piece of CRAP! And I'm Not Kidding - I couldn't believe it! I don't know what these other 'players' got but - now I only tried one But - I am basically throwing these away!!! If I give them to a kid to blow they'll probably put them down and never play again because that's how bad they don't preform. Now I took out the 'real' harp and OMG - I Can Play! The Hohner Blues Band Seven-Piece Set are made in China - what Crap! The 'real' one -Special 20 is made in Germany - NO Comparison - NO COMPARISON! Save your money and buy a Real harp - I have Lee Oskar's and Special 20. You need to spend your money on the real thing and not be invalidated by some cheap piece of Dog Squeeze! Now, I'm not normally so pissy but the harp is really like some of my 20 year old Marine Bands that are antiques never to be played again. I won't go on. SAVE A FEW BUCKS BUY A REAL ONE AND PLAY!

    Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

    I thought I would buy these harmonicas for when one of my good one's messed up. I could use one of these bluesband harps till I got another one. I read a few reviews on them and some people made em sound ok. Well all I can say if them people found these harmonicas "ok" then they CANNOT know anything about music. I got these harps and all seven of them were defective!! I could not believe it, I knew I shouldn't expect much but come on. On everyone of them starting at the 6th hole to the 8th hole you CANNOT draw on them, and they call them a "blues harp"?
    on top of that they have NO volume what so ever. It says on the box,"this is not a toy, this is a musicical instrument" what a joke. I wanted my money back because they did not work and I seen how cheap they were so I contacted the Hohner business and they told me all they would do is replace them with one's that work. I told them I wanted my money back and they told me NO. I was treated like a number, not a person at all. seem like to me when you buy something and it doesn't work you should get the option to return it. there customer service was terrible!!!! I'm chosing to take a loss and not send them back because I don't want to get more junk that won't work. It would be an ongoing process to even get some that would work. Even if you did get some that worked they are so quiet you could never be heard over another insrtument. I'm going to give them to my 3 year old daughter for x-mas, maybe she could get some use out of them. Did i mention they make your mouth taste like cheap plastic. I would never
    recommend these to ANYONE, SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!

    Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

    ok..I'm not the greatest harp player , but these harps really blow , and not in a good way. They don't work. I needed the Bb flat for 30 seconds in "Soul Man" and the very hole I needed did not produce a sound. Same with most of the other ones also. Plus the sound is cheesy. It is not easy to bend notes. Don't waste your money , cough up the bucks and get a Blues Harp with wooden reeds. Stay away from plastic

    Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

    Honestly I thought that this would be garbage. Seven harmonicas for less then what I would usually pay for just one. Buy em. You wont be dissapointed at all. There will be some flaws like on mine the G is out of tune when chords are played on it. BIG DEAL. That means there are still 6 harmonicas in full working condition that sound pretty good. You can bend notes even. You will not be disapointed. My G harm may have been a lemon so you might get all working harmonicas and the case they come in is solid too. Almost forgot about that haha. This is a great deal.

    won't recomend
    Nice to have 7 harmonica's
    These maybe good for campfire playing although not for learning or single note playing, you never know if a note is going to work. They play just as they are $5 harmonicas.\
    better to take these to the beach than a $40 harmonica

          Go a step up and consider the Big River or even a Folkmaster so you have something you can learn with and really play. The case is nice but is not cut big enough to hold a Big River or Delta Frost however the Folkmaster will fit fine. If you are looking just for the inexpensive case, buy a Piedmont Blues set for less money and the larger harmonicas will fit in it and you will have some toys for the grandkids (for when you send them home).

          Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

          Yeah, they're not the best harps in the world. There may be an issue with one or more harps in the pack, but all of mine played true right out of the box. They're a little quiet, but have spot-on tuning, and they play and bend with little effort. The case alone is woth the money. It's made of wood with metal hinges, and cowered in rip-stop nylon. Very tough. It's graet to have at a jam session when you don't know what key the next song is going to be in. I go to alot of music festivals, so I may be playing outside in the dark after I've had a few. If I lose one of these, I'm not out that much cash, so I'm even more happy with the set. I saw a lot of bad reviews, but trust me, It's more than worth the price.

            Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

            the hohner blues band set is great, the thing im most impressed with is the tuning all the harmonicas in my set were in tune, with no dead notes to speak of, they all bend pretty easly and do have very good tone, my set did not come with the fancy grey case shown mine came with a black case and no hohner logo, although these are not pro quality they are very good, i have played out with them with no problems at all, very consistant, good inexpensive harmonicas, i would for sure recomend these to anyone looking for a very good inexpensive harmonica, i do own a marine band and its nice but the reed plates stick out past the comb and it is very uncomfortable to play and i also own a blues bender that is nice but not as nice as twice the price of the blues band, go for the blues band, these are a great deal!!!
