OVERVIEW

Advanced technology and functional beauty are combined in this stunning 10-hole diatonic harmonica.

The revolutionary new Manji 20 10-hole diatonic harmonica is named after Mr. Manji Suzuki, the company's founder-now in his mid 80s, but still very much in charge. He started with a single hand-built model 70 years ago, and has built Suzuki up into one of the world's premier harmonica manufacturers.

The M20 has a resin composite comb with wood particles embedded. This gives you the tone of a wood comb without cracking or warping.

Harmonicas are Mr. Suzuki's passion and his life's work. The fact he is putting his own name on the MANJI Harmonica is because those 70 years of dedication to perfection are condensed in this one impressive instrument. He is convinced that it will come to be regarded as one of the best harmonicas of the 21st century.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select from available keys.

i love suzuki harps. i own many suzuki harps in multiple keys! i own the firebreath! Fantastic instrument! i own the pro -master in valved and un valved! truly one of the greatest harmonicas i have ever played.....with or without valves!!!!!! i have recently acquired the "overdrive" that i truly believe to be one of the most innovative mouth organs on the planet! i must still continue my education on this instrument, as it is amazingly speciallized and requires a learning curve that i am JUST starting to feel!
i also love Hohner harmonicas, and at age 58 i have been playing them since i was 9 years of age. i obviously own many models , types and all in many keys. when the marine band crossover was introduced i was very excited. i immediately orderred 2 keys and waited with baited breath. to my complete joy they are the loudest raspiest most comfortable easiest to play blues jazz classical country and pop musical instruments in the world!!! i couldn't be happier! then the thunderbird was introduced! octave lower special conical covers etc! MEH! money wasted in my opinion. my steve baker special gives me the low octave and as an all around players harmonica....sweet!
anyway ...i orderred the manji in D. (thought the high pitched bendind would be easier. i am now going to order a lower key because i find the fiit and finish to be fantastic....but it's not an easy air tight harp with spectacular bends that i expected. believe me i have seen all of suzukis GREAT playing sponsers ripping them up....and at 58 playing for almost 50 years ....i'm pretty good!

I own many different brands of harmonica. The Manji is a disappointing instrument for the price. The first one I received I had to send back, had weak and dead reeds. The second one plays okay but is too quiet and hard to get good sound with. For the price I recommend a Hohner crossover.

Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

I have a few of these and they've all been in-tune and properly gapped out of the box. These harps are loud and responsive with a tone sort of like the Delta Frost, but less crackly. Bends fairly well. They're well built and have rounded corners and beveled tone holes. Watch the cover plates. They haven't cut me but it's pretty easy to bend them.Overall, a cool looking and well playing harp. The Hering 1923 is probably better for the bluesmen (if you can stand the brass taste), but the '23 doesn't come in Low F or High G, and it's not as loud or bright as the Manji.

Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

What a beautiful instrument! I have many harmonicas, but this is my first Manji. I have kept away because of the cost, but I recently found one at half price and decided to try it. The quality of material and construction is stunning. It is well- designed and easy to disassemble, and has a composite comb. One thing that I noticed is that there are only two screws to hold the cover plates, but it seems to be fairly air-tight. It comes in a very nice hard plastic protective case, which in spite of attractive artwork, does not hold the harp snugly and is lacking air vents to allow for drying and circulation. One other improvement in my mind would be to mark the key on the right side instead of on the back of the comb. This would make it easier to orientate when using at a gig in a low-light environment. But this is nit-picking. Some may find it annoying that the reed plates project past the covers. Nothing is perfect in this world, but the tuning on this harp is scary-close. I checked it on a chromatic tuner, and I have never seen a more accurately tuned harmonica. And the tone! It has a hauntingly-sweet sound which is certainly unique to this model. It may, however, not be the loudest harp in my collection, but it has no equal in the quality department. Unfortunately, at the going market price, I probably won't be buying too many of them.

Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

Harmonica teacher endorses these, and I bought several on his advice. These are extremely smooth harmonicas. They give you back more than you put in, that is, they are highly responsive to your breath. I do agree that the tone can be "tinsely." I hope I spelled that word right, meaning that it can sound like tinsel.
But I view the Manji as superior to anything other brands put out. I have other brands as "beater harps" for practice and jams, but if I am going to play for others, I want the Manji. It sounds a lot like the Golden Melody, but it's smoother. A manji is very smooth on your lips, unlike some of the others out there. Get a few Manjis, even at the high price, they are worth it. My only concern is how long the reeds will last. I'm hoping that the Manjis will prove more durable then some otheres that i have tried.

Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

No wonder the Suzuki founder has his name on this one! Very easy to get great sounding notes on this harp. I am very impressed with the clear, rich sound. Very well made. Looks and feels like quality. Don't hesitate to get one of these great harmonicas.

Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

Pretty good; I'm imagining Suzuki's response to a standard Marine Band. Not as responsive as a Hohner Crossover, nor as sweet as a Marine Band Deluxe. Not as smooth as a Suzuki Olive. I imagine maybe more consistent than a standard our of the box Marine Band, just because the Japanese manufacturers seem capable of this. Not up to a Seydel 1847 for sure.

Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

Suzuki harps are nice, often seem a little more "luxurious" than other harps. Stable wood and resin comb, feels well made, the vented side covers make it a loud and bright sounding harp. Hole shapes are consistent rectangle and standard with Hohner and others. All of reeds seemed well in tune.

      Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

      I've been a Hohner customer for the past 40 years but after my 4th Crossover blew a note inside of three months, I decided to try the Manji I was pleasantly surprised at how well built the harp is, how nice it looks, and how well it plays a warm rich tone with little effort. The harp was capable of easy bends right out of the box.
      I've had it for only a week now but I see no reason why I wouldn't make my next harp a Manji. So far I'm very pleased.

        Comments about Suzuki M20 Manji 10-Hole Harmonica:

        I own many different brands of harmonica. The Manji is a disappointing instrument for the price. The first one I received I had to send back, had weak and dead reeds. The second one plays okay but is too quiet and hard to get good sound with. For the price I recommend a Hohner crossover.
