I have to point out that the previous review by Smokey Joe is incorrect, because it refers to the way the Pro Harp USED to be, not the new ones. A few years back Hohner changed the Pro Harp - it used to be, as Smokey Joe correctly states, exactly the same harp as the Special 20 except for a black cover - the one minor difference was that the Special 20's cover was metal, and the Pro Harp's was plastic, and that changed the tone a bit - I used to LOVE the sound of the Pro Harp. Hohner then for some reason changed the design of the Pro Harp so that it now has changeable reed plates, and one of the consequences of this change is that the reed plates actually come over the plastic comb a bit - since those reed plates are metal, they do tend to cut into the lips a bit if you play a lot - they also changed the size of the harp (just a bit longer, with slightly wider holes) - so now, the Pro Harp is VERY different from the Special 20 - still a great harmonica though. However, the picture currently shown on the Musician's Friend web site is a picture of the OLD Pro Harp, NOT the one they actually ship, so be aware of that.

I bought a pro harp from this outfit that was proably a blem. The brass plate extended over the blow holes. This made for a very sloppy sound in that you cannot make a seal on a single hole. After comparing mine to some other ones the one I got it appears that mine was manufactured wrong. In that there is a NO RETURN POLICY on harps it was kind of a bum deal. Beware if you order one and the brass plate extends over the blow holes complane at once. It took me a couple of weeks to find a comparison and by that time I figured live and learn.

Great little harp

By Buzzy

from Red Bluff, CA

See all my reviews

I bought one of these instead of the special 20 just to check it out it was only a little more and I must admit it is worth it. I get a great sound out of it and I love the amount of volume I can get. I will be getting more of these instead of the special 20 from now on.

almost perfect (but not quite)

By Patrick Barker

from laguna hills, ca

I've been playing with hohners lower end models as a beginner for a while (hohner pocket pall and hohner bluesband (not to be confused with blues harp) and I like the hohner pro harp much more. It is much louder and more resonant than the other two harps and I love the sound it makes on the low notes. It bends pretty well out of the box but not quite as well as my other two but I'm sure that after playing it more the bending will get better. My only problems are that it has a metal thing that sticks out a little which bothers me a little when I'm playing but I'm guessing it will be better once I get used to it.

Very High Quality and Great sound!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this harmonica for my birthday in the key of A. I have to put a lot of effort into it just to pull it away from my lips. Although the draw reeds occasionally clog up, I find the problem easily fixed by simply drawing really hard. The black plates really look cool too. Point being, if you wandt a real great harmonica, get at least one of these!

Great Blues Harp

By James Buffalo Spencer

from Richardson, TX

I now own a Golden Melody, Big River Harp, Pro harp and a Pocket pal. The Pro harp just beats the Golden Melody when it comes to the blues. Its smooth sound plays cords with ease. It you are into the blues, I would certainly say you should buy a Hohner Pro Harp.

Sturdy, dependable, easy to use, great sound.

By almgtop

from Topeka, KS

A good heft and size to feel comfortable and secure and manageable in your hand. Ease of use and feel. Great sound continuity. The only drawback is the availability of diatonic major reeds.

Very easy to bend

By Exteban

from Corvallis, OR

See all my reviews

Of the four or five harmonicas I've played, these are by FAR the easiest to bend notes on. Also, unlike other harmonicas where the high notes tend to switch between two pitches abruptly, it is easy to get a smooth, controlled bend on ever hole of the Pro Harp. I do have a few concerns though: the reeds sometimes get stuck momentarily when you really try to bend it hard. And it's not very airtight. You end up using a lot of air on the low notes. Also, there may be some quality control issues, as one of the two I own came with a reed that wouldn't sound until I opened it up and bent it slightly to let air pass through.Still, these are my favorite harmonicas simply because they allow me to be much more expressive than any other harp does.

Pro Harp a big disapointment

By Frank Mangiapane

from New Orleans

I bought this harp hoping that Hohner had improved their quality control, but I was wrong. This harp is not worth the money.Save yourself some grief and some money.This harp is loose and windy.I have switched to Seydel 1847 harps and am completly satisfied with Seydel 1847 harps. I own every diatonic Hoehner has made in the last 5 years and none come close to the Seydel 1847 no matter how much they cost!

So far...

Ask me a question

The Pro Harp sounds and plays decently, and I'm satisfied with the one that I have.I must also state that I acquired my Pro Harp before Hohner made their arrogant, ridiculous and greedy decision to hike the prices of their harmonicas. As much as I like my Hohner harmonicas, I plan to look elsewhere for any new harmonicas.

Awesome sound but rough on the lips

By Blowin' PCV

from Bangladesh

A nice true sound but the reed plate extends out a bit with hard corner. Becomes a little rough on the corners of the mouth as well as your hands (the corners are sharp), if you play for a while. but I found it's worth the sound.

Great harp

By Maurice

These harps take a little more wind, but they have a warm round sound and are quite usable for a long time. I really like the tone and the feel.

Looks nice, Same Old

By Smokey Joe

from Melbourne Australia

OK, i do love this harp and find it quite nice. I usually play Big Rivers and Special 20's so when i bought this one i was very impressed with the nice black look. But apart from the black case this harp is EXACTLY the same as a special 20. Special 20's are excellent harps and i reccomend them thoroughly. This harp does cost the same so it is not a rip off, but it is still exactly the same as a special 20. Dont buy this because you think you need a better harp than a special 20 because you would be getting fooled. I recommend the big rivers anyhow. But if you want a cool looking special 20, go 4 your life..

It has been changed

By Burns

from Roswell, GA

This picture needs to be changed, it is very misleading. The harp is nothing like the Special 20 as I have heard, it more like the Blues Harp than any thing. It is not a bad Harmonica, just not like the special 20.
