Availability:  


A traditional blues harp that's specially made for 2nd-position note bending, which gives the blues its signature sound.

The Blues Harp is engineered for consistent volume and tone that's ideal for intense blues playing. The Hohner Blues Harp can hang with the toughest harmonica players on their most serious gigs. The Blues Harp is highly bendable and has a dirty, dark, hard rockin' sound. One of Hohner's classic models, the 532 Blues Harp is emphasizes the best qualities of blues harmonica playing. Hohner builds the Blues Harp with a wood comb and thin reeds, allowing for easier note bending.

About MS-Series harmonicas:
The acronym 'MS' stands for Modular System, an integrated concept of Hohner's harmonica designs. MS-series harmonicas benefit from innovations that improve their playing characteristics and also significantly facilitate maintenance and handling. All MS-series parts (combs, reed plates, and covers) can be combined individually. Simple screw connections allow for easy assembly. This benefit offers players the possibility to adjust the instruments to their individual requirements. For example, some players prefer the body of one model and the cover plates of another, and so a "custom hybrid" is possible for the discerning player. Replacement reeds are available (see item: RP565 MS Replacement Reed Plates).

About Hohner:
Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.

  • Great sound, solid construction, awesome case

    As reviewed by Jake Robinson on 3/8/2011

    I just bought my first one. With a wooden comb this sounds similar to a Marine Band. The bends are easy to pull off and response is fairly quick. The harp seems to be put together really well and I expect it to hold up similarly to a Marine Band. I normally prefer Special 20s and Marine Bands from Hohner, but this harp may find it's way into my gig bag...it just sounds great right out of the package. A big plus is the case. The case is made of hard plastic and the harp fits tightly into it. It is the same case used for the Pro Harp. I love it and I'm probably going to buy a few more.

  • My Best Harp

    As reviewed by Richard on 2/19/2011

    I bought this as a replacement for my Special 20 which lost a reed. It is by far the easiest playing and best sounding harp I own, which include an 1896 Marine Band, Big River and Blues Bender, all by Hohner, as well as a recently purchased Lee Oskar. Although I'm a little leery of the durability of the wood comb, if it holds up, this is the only harp I will buy in the future.

  • If it works 4 stars

    As reviewed by Clovus on 5/30/2011

    I'm giving this harp 3 stars because I had a bad reed. GC customer service is excellent and a new one is one the way! I am a novice harmonica player so I don't want to give this 5 stars, but If it works properly the tone in my opinion is more natural or organic than the special 20, and I would give it 5 stars. The price is excellent and the tone is outstanding!
