Hohner Special 20 Harmonica

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


One of the highly recommended models/brands by Blues harp players, best known for its affordable price, usability, and most importantly, good tone.

Product Description: Durable plastic comb with recessed reed plates for playing comfort. The stable, airtight construction and full sound make the Special 20 one of the most popular diatonic models. This is the essence of the Classic line -- traditional value and cutting edge technology. Extremely precise tools minimize air loss and ensure a quicker response and bigger volume. As always, each Special 20 harmonica is exclusively handmade.

is the special 20 different from just "marine band"? i'm planning to get one as a beginner who has been practicing with a cheap 10 dollar harp, i deserve a decent one. i found a place where i can get the hohner blues band or marine band for P1500+. the one i checked had a wooden comb but i'm sure they have one with plastic. would love your input on this.

hello harp brother!

i can't give you a definite answer on this since
i don't have an extensive collection of harps myself - so far i've only tried the hohner blues harp (wood comb), suzuki folkmaster (plastic comb), few special 20s, and a cheap "parrot brand" key of C.

of those mentioned, special 20s are the best (easiest to play/bend + good tone). i think you'll be safe going with a plastic combed hohner harp.

hope to hear more from you soon =)

keep on wailin'!
