This harp is very much a case of getting what you pay for. It is a very light, Chinese made harp very, very similar to the Hohner "Hot Metal" or perhaps the "Old Standby." I have to say that it does play all twenty reeds pretty but aside from that it is just a cheap little harp. Tone is OK but nothing to gig with. Do not confuse this with the other Steven Tyler Hohner product which has a wooden comb and Meisterklasse plated reeds. This ain't it. I just had a very good experience buying one of these promotional Hohners, the 150th Anniversary Model for twenty bucks. It turned out be a great harp so I decided to give this one a shot. But, the one good thing I have to say about this model is that it has the smoothest cover plates I have ever used in my life. I'm seriously considering chucking the harp and putting the cover plates on a good harp.
For several years, I was lugging drums around and setting up the stage for a local band. That got really old, and my back hurt. The lead in the band suggested that I learn how to play the harp. Huh.. that was only a year ago, so I am still a rookie, but having a great time. I started with a 7 piece Hohner set, and progressed pretty well... but it wasn't until I was given a Steven Tyler "A" harp as a birthday gift, that I took off. I love this harmonica. It is sweet. It sometimes feels that it just becomes a part of you while you play it. Great reliable tone. Smooth, when you want smooth... and "quackie" when you want raunchy. Responds extremely well under all circumstances. Even for a rookie like me.
I've tried all kinds of harmonica brands over the years (finally settling on Lee Oskar), and stumbled across the Steven Tyler signature harp in a music store. As with any kind of signature instrument, you're mostly paying for the famous name here. But I do like Aerosmith, and realizing that I was buying a novelty item first and foremost, I decided to get it anyway. Suprisingly, it IS a honestly a pretty good harp! It's pretty air-tight, and the comb makes for a nice bright and clean sound. It's only available in the key of "A" though, so while that does fit over the guitarist who wants to jam on E7, don't expect to be able to play songs like "Pink" (G7)!
