I have used this harmonica as a give- away to charities. I offer 4 lessons and this cheap little harmonica at charitable silent auctions, usually taking 3 to 4 learners at a crack.
weight of the harp and the chrome is very good. Reeds won't last long, and it's not as airtight as a more expensive harp. But it is a playable harmonica.
What do you expect?? It's a good solid harmonica for the money.
Good enough to learn on.
Cheap, but I don't think you'll find anything better in this price range.

The Chinese made Hohner Bluesband is only good for two things: to buy in bulk to give them away, or for a complete beginner who is not sure if they will stick with the harmonica and don't want to spend more cash.If you want a low priced Chinese made Hohner, I suggest you spend a couple dollars more and get the Old Standby, as it seems to be the best quality for the Chinese line, and it has a louder and fuller sound. Don't get the Chinese made Blues Bender (a different model than the Bluesband), as it is way overpriced for a Chinese made harp, and the quality is no better than the Old Standby.

      You may love this harmonica but I thought it was very cheaply made and just had no quality sound. I would call this a "kid's toy".

          I bought this harmonica in A, for 5.99. Total waste of money. I understand, maybe I got the bad one. I know sometimes, just by accident one may get more or less normal. But it is much better adding another 10- 15 dol and have something better.

              these inexpensive harmonicas are almost as good sounding as the expensive
              ones. The reason I tried these were that the expensive ones,( i.e. Lee Oskar in G) goes out of tune very quickly and I can't afford to buy new ones every month or so.

                  I purchased this for my grandson he is only four years old but likes to learn how to play, and it can stand up to his abuse. I read reviews how some notes didn't work but mine was fine.

                      I got this just to have a cheaper harp to toss in my pocket and not be bothered if it got scratched. This one showed up scratched! Also, holes 6,7, and 9 have bad reeds. It takes a lot of air to play and really just isn't worth the money (even if it is this cheap).
