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:

        Used to play harmonica "out" a lot; had a variety of harps, of which I preferred my Hohner "Pro Harps," most of which are lost, stolen, or strayed at this point.

        I wanted to get back into playing harp regulary, playing for other folks, which meant I would be subject to weird keys. So I figured I'd get started with the 5-unit set and work my way out from there. MOSTLY I wanted consistency, and this was the least expensive set that all the reviews seemed to feel had that. I wish they had included an F harp instead of an E. But I bought an F, Bb and Eb at the same time so I'd be mostly covered.

        My initial response is that the set IS consistent. It is as bendable as I need it to be, but has pretty good intonation, so it will do the job I need it for. That said, if I could have spent a few $$ more and got a "Pro harp" set instead, I would have. These are not QUITE as expressive. If I wind up playing out enough to need replacing any of these, I will probably replace them individually with the Pro Harps, but they are too expensive to buy a whole set at once.

        One special note: My first F harp (way back when) was a Hohner Blues Harp, and I was disappointed with the tone from the start. I hadn't realized at the time that the thing was almost an octave higher than my G harps; with the flimsier reeds that they include to make bending easier, the poor thing just did not have the kind of gutsy tone I was expecting (and used to on my other harps). So when I needed to add an F harp to this set, there was no question about chintzing out on it. Again, an F Pro Harp may sound better, but the Special 20 F harp has a much fuller sound than the F Blues Harp, in case you wondered.

        So, overall I'm very pleased, though I would have sprung for the difference if I could have got the Pro Harps in this sort of set. And I still would . . .

              I've experimented with some other brands and other types of Hohners and I keep coming back to my Special 20s. Save yourself some time and money and just get 'em. John Popper and I can't both be wrong.

                OK. I have been stumbling with a set of cheapo Chinese Hohner Old Standby Harmonicas. I anticipated using them in a neck rack to accompany my guitar. I figured I would never be real serious so I purchased them to save money. Bad choice. Once I started playing the Special 20s I realized that good harmonicas are a must. If you are going to play harmonica, you need good instruments. Period. Don't waste time with cheesy harps. Buy the special 20s and get busy. This 5 pack is a good deal but I have yet to play the E harp.

                Great set of harps... agree with other reviewers that it would be great to have a "build your own set." If there was the option, I would buy another set of 5 or more. Very consistent sound and quality compared to others I have played- don't have to force the air through.

                      I'm not the greatest harmonica player, but I do use them as accompaniment while playing gigs. It would make it so much nicer if the key of the harmonica was plainly labeled so you can see which harmonica you are picking up in dimly lit areas...like a bar. Very good value though.
