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.

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 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.

              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

                        As a long time harp man, I highly recommend this set for serious beginners. Each harp has quality sound, and the range of keys allows the versatility to accompany just about any venue.

                          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.

                              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.
