I wanted low and i got it

By Brosef

It is true. These harps are tuned low. However, this makes them harder to play, harder to hear, and overall harder to use. Its not that I don't like it. It has a very warm sound, but trying to play with acoustic instruments is difficult to impossible because it is drowned out by the evil wooden juggernauts. I find that I don't pull it out as readily as my normal diatonics. So my advice is if you are going to buy it, know that it will not be something you use all the time. But what do I know. You could be pioneering some sort of subsonic music that elephants can really get into.


They don't last.

I have used these frequently in performance. I had purchased a few in a variety of keys. Unfortunately, they very quickly blow reeds, making them useless. Unless you want to be buying a couple each year, I wouldn't recommend this harp.


Broke a reed - third gig...!

By Tangled-up

from Baltimore

Loved the sound. Only used it on one song. A few practices and three gigs later, some reeds were blown and one had entirely disappeared! (Where did it go? Did I swallow or aspirate it? Guess I'll never know.) Bottom line..., disappointed in lack of longevity. Need to find another manufacturer of a low D.


Great harp!

This is a great harp for any experienced player. It's just what I was looking for because the normal E harp is way too high. Sounds great on the Beatles' "Please Please Me" !

I have been playing harmonica for a few years now, and this Hohner 20 does not hold up. This piece of you know what only made it thru 3 live shows and the 5th and 6th reeds are already shot. I suggest buying a differnet one.


Low tone harps

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Low tone harps by ALL Mfrs. blow out fast.You can keep them longer by blowing gently. Maybe get close to a microphone.I play straight harp melody lines and I savor the low e and f harps. D blows out fast, it's true.
