I have never written a review but felt I needed to here. I'll start by saying that I play mostly delta blues on guitar(slide,etc.) and have been playing the harp for about 2 years. I enjoy playing both insruments together but have been frustrated with traditional holders as they require that you bend your neck to reach the harp as they are set at a "one size fits all" height. on top of that, I learned to play by tilting my harp on an angle for the best embouchure. this cant be done on a trad. holder. Then I found this baby. I was hesitant because of the cost, but decided my musical happiness was worth it. I gotta say it's been one of my better purchase decisions. This holder is phenomenal. I get the best height and angle and my sound has improved greatly. It's solidly constructed and easy to use Comfort is just ok but so were the others. It holds Lee Oscars well and since these are the only harps I use I cant really comment on how it will hold other harps. Well worth the money.

Ive used harmonica braces for the past 30-years and this is a true disappointment. I was excited when this unit was announced and couldn't wait to get one so I could experience 'true fit & comfort'. Nothing could be further from the truth. This unit was obviously never 'peer reviewed' before being brought to market. Every adjustment takes two hands and even then the harp falls out the back of the brace. The unit is big, cumbersome, not designed to fit a human, and will not slip on and off over the head without two hands and a full readjustment each time. And then, in 2 months, it starts falling apart... threads became stripped and screws backed off by themselves...never to be seen again. I have harp braces that are more than 20-years old and never had this kind of problem. I tried to communicate with Hohner about making this right and they never responded to my e-mails. Thankfully, Musician's Friend agreed to take the 'flex rack' back after 4-months (with a 15% restocking fee). Thanks Musician's Friend! Hohner...I'm beginning to understand why you're losing market share to Lee Oskar and Suzuki.

      Doesn't "Grip" the harp well enough.

        Comments about Hohner Flex Rack Harmonica Neck Holder:

        Unit is impressive as far as features but the unforgivable drawback is that the harmonica clamp is not "tacky" enough to grip the harmonica so if you use too much pressure, your harp will slip thru the back of the clamp. I use an old "Blues Tool" holder (no longer made) which the Hohner was obvioulsy based off of and mine actually has a "lip" on the clamp to secure the harp. If Hohner would have done this then the unit would be 100%.

          Comments about Hohner Flex Rack Harmonica Neck Holder:

          I dont play much hamonica, but I bought this one being my cheaper one stripped the tightning nob, I thought this one would be better, and it probally is for someone else, but for me, its bulky, after you get your harmonica in and all set up, your ready to go, but it gets in the way when you want to sing, Iv had to turn my head and my neck away from this big contraption that seems to cover my face and somehow work my way around it so I can sing into a mic. So , I dont use it anymore, its just sitting in the drawer, Im happier with the cheap, thin, simple to use hohner , I should order a new one, thanks

          After using this beauty I threw out the three cheap holders!! This is soooo much more comfortable than the cheapies and much more stable. I found it not only very comfortable but because of this a joy to use!! Yes it's expensive, but I found it very much worth the money!!

              It reminds me of a face guard on a football helmet. It is well made and works like it should, but I prefer my old (light-weight) wire harmonica holder. I sent this one back to Musicians Friend.

                    This rack is rock solid. It is wider tham most others I have used, which provides good side-to-side stability. The main hinges have detents that immobilize the angle you set without having to use fierce pressure on the tightening knobs. The height/angle adjustment holds tight too. The thickness of the metal suggests it will survive a lot of rough handling.

                    I have to admit, when I read other reviews, I was dubious about getting it. I took the chance and am really happy with this device. I'm a bigger man and it fits me just right.
                    I would strongly recommend this device.

                        The thought of a more stable, secure rack was alluring. However, I find no worthwhile improvement that would make me want to keep it. I find it bulky and a little cumbersome to adjust. Once it is adjusted it does stay put for sure. Furthermore, it will not fit in my harmonica case as the old one did. When I adjusted it to fit me it was basically the same as the old school rack. Some things better left alone. Lesson learned.
