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.

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:

    I guess you get what you pay for. The price for a set of 7 was less than the cost of one quality Hohner harmonica so I should have known. I was hoping the Hohner name would make a difference when I purchased this set. Since it was less than the cost of dinner for 2 at a restaurant, I figured it would be worth the risk. They are somewhat playable and I can use them for my own amusement but would be had pressed to expect to use on a paid gig.

          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

                It is always good to have a harmonica close by ... and this is a great little set to take care of the need. Easy to play and in several keys, this will do the job for most people. I like the tone too.

                    Why on earth:

                    would Hohner manufacture such a product?
                    would Musician's Friend carry it?
                    would I expect to buy 7 harps for such a sum.
                    These are unplayable. I'm the sucker but I am deeply disappointed in Hohner and Musician's Friend today.

                            The bottom line is only buy if you want the experience of
                            being a harmonica tuner/mechanic. My review is anecdotal
                            based on my experience with 8 BluesBands, a Golden Melody,a Marine Band and a Special 20. BluesBands had a 20 percent failure: a least one reed would not play, was dragging on the slot and, therefore, muted, or gapped too high or too low, requiring too much effort to play. I was able to fix all these problems with about 10-20 minutes work on each. The problem is quality control associated with assembly. This is such a shame, there is
                            no significant difference mechanically between BluesBand and Special 20. But Special 20s have fewer problems. My advice is only buy the harps you will really need, these
                            will be mostly in keys C, A, D, and G in that order. Lee Oscars, and Suzuki Mangis are reasonably priced, and represent the better economy: 4 quality harps rather than
                            7 with problems.
