OVERVIEW

A special case of Special 20 harmonicas at a special price with a durable road case for free!

The Hohner Special Case consists of 5 Special 20 harmonicas in the most popular keys: G, A, C, D, and E. To keep the harps safe while you travel, these Hohner Special harmonicas come in a free padded case with a plush black interior that can hold a total of 7 harps.

Hohner Special 20 harmonicas are known for their awesome response, superior bendability, and the sweetest tone ever. This harp is the first choice for those learning to play harmonica. The Hohner Special 20's airtight design makes it the most recommended go-to harp for harmonica players of any style, including blues, country, folk, or rock. The harmonica's plastic comb doesn't absorb moisture, making it last longer.

The Hohner Special 20 is the harp of choice of harmonica virtuoso John Popper of Blues Traveler, and it's the one played by Bob Dylan on his 2007-2008 tour.

The harp case also has a hook-and-loop fastener as well as a zipper to keep your Honer Special harmonicas securely in place.

First of all, the reviewer below implies that the harmonicas in this set are not special 20's; THESE ARE IN FACT, SPECIAL 20'S!Having said that, buying 5 special 20's separately adds up to much more than what this set costs and the case that comes with it is very nice!If you aren't familiar with what a "Special 20" is, google it; the Special 20 is the harmonica of choice for many proffessionals. Fortunately, it is very beginner friendly as well!If you are serious about harmonica, don't waste your time on cheaper instrumentes; splurge on this set (these are SO much funner than the cheaper alternatives) and buy the Bb and F ones as well.My only complaint? This set only has 5 harmonicas! I think Hohner should just throw in an F and a Bb harmonica, raise the price by $60, and sell it as a complete set.

It's too bad that they didn't include a B-flat as one of the five and remove the E. The E is rarely used compared to the G, A, Bb,C and D. So, really you're paying for 4 good harps and a not-so-useful E harp. Still a good price, but Hohner could have made it better.

Comments about Hohner Case of Special 20s Harmonica 5-Pack:

well, first of all i am a drummer and i play harp as well.I have played most of them out there,Lee oscar,Hohner delux,,ect.. They are good but i could not get the bending of notes with them like the Special 20's.Smooth on the lips as well,plastic combs(last lot longer).Ergonomic all the way around and the design is perfect and i can get that Little Walter sound that is so tough sounding with an old 50's bullet mic.These are my choice and really compair to all the hype of a 80-100 dollar Harp,Period!!..For my sound,second best is NOT an option,you will like these.Stay cool ,all. g

      Comments about Hohner Case of Special 20s Harmonica 5-Pack:

      I want to make something clear here: these are the best harmonicas for the money and this is the best deal on them. Special 20s are my go-to harp. My only hang up on this deal is that the harps don't come with their own individual cases as when you buy them singularly. And the lining in the case seems like it will tear easily. But don't let this put you off. You're getting these harmonicas at a steal and the price for them alone is worth it.

        Comments about Hohner Case of Special 20s Harmonica 5-Pack:

        These harmonicas came fast and in great condition. There were no marks, dents or other imperfections. They play easy, with a great tone and volume. I recently played them at a benefit and they equaled the volume of the other musician's "expensive" instruments. They are great instruments overall and worth the value. The only problem is that the case only holds 7, when I'll probably need at least 10.

        Comments about Hohner Case of Special 20s Harmonica 5-Pack:

        I play in a band that plays 60s and 70 s Rock & R&B. We've been together about ten years, we practice a couple of times a month and play and small clubs and parties, maybe once a month. A fun hobby, but we certainly don't make enough o call it a profession..

        I've tried Lee Oskars and others, but I keep coming back to the special 20s LOVE the handling, tone and bendability of these harps.

        There is one downside,the reeds tend to blow out much more often than I would expect.. Nothing worse than being in the middle of a ripping solo, and having one of the reeds go out. The replacement plates cost about as much or more than just buying new harps, it seems like I am buying a new set every couple of years. Seems excessive. So, I've got a drawer full of special 20s for repair (if I ever find cheap plates somewhere) but I just keep buying them anyway, the best sounding harp I've found.

        Comments about Hohner Case of Special 20s Harmonica 5-Pack:

        Started on a Sousa Band (which I thought were pretty good), but these Special 20s blow those out of the WATER! Maybe I'm thinking too far ahead, but some harmonicas have reed replacements for when the reeds wear out. I can't seem to find any for the Special 20s, though. Still, you can't beat their sound and air-tightness. "Two thumbs up!"

        Comments about Hohner Case of Special 20s Harmonica 5-Pack:

        Transistioning back to more solo gigs from duo and full band, I am looking for ways to fill out my sound and keep the audience listening. This set gives me the motivation to learn to play the harp with the harmonica holder around my neck. Hohner should just include the 7 harps that everyone is talking about. However, that said, I am also a businessman and I understand that the 5 pack promotional kit will get people like me in the door, and then I will buy more product. Which I did. I bought the F and Bb and filled out my case. I'm confident that I will get years of use and enjoyment from these new tools of the trade.

          It's too bad that they didn't include a B-flat as one of the five and remove the E. The E is rarely used compared to the G, A, Bb,C and D. So, really you're paying for 4 good harps and a not-so-useful E harp. Still a good price, but Hohner could have made it better.

                  I have been playing Special 20's since 79 or 80, in several bands nowadays just for fun. The bendability and the smoothness and reliability is remarkable...and something that many dont consider...longevity. Yes they are a bit pricey but well worth the money if you are serious about the harp. I used to buy them for Ten fifty each so that should give you an idea about how long I have been playing them.

                      These harps are a great choice and value for any level player especially when purchased in these 5 packs which brings the price per harp down into the mid 20's each which is very cheap for such a well made harp that has such good tone, easy to play etc.

                        The Special 20 is my favorite harp, great all around sound and tone while being easy to play. When I went looking for a set it seemed that everyone was sold out. I did the back order thing with Musicians Friend and waited. Every now and again I'd receive an email keeping me updated, nice job and thank you MF!! The main reason I purchased from MF was the price. Without question the lowest price anywhere! Harps arrived well packed and in perfect working order.

He has 1 harmonica but has talked about wanting harmonicas in different keys so when his birthday rolled around, I started searching for harmonica sets. He was super excited about it when he opened it and has used them a little but not a lot yet. I love this site, which was recommended to me by a coworker years ago. I find myself always coming back to purchase more stuff for my husband!
