      OVERVIEW

      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.

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

      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:

          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.

                I love the price on the five pack five harps for the price of three at my local music store. I keep the basic five keys as a back up for when a reed goes during a gig.

                    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.

                    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!"

                      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.
