I have been wailing on the harp since I was a teenager... no, a pre-teenager. The 270 is an indistry standard - I have gigged with this harp since I was a kid (no joke, my first was like in the 1970's, and it was a used low G reedbender 270) , I have done everything from live audience to streetcorner to jam sessions. You gotta KNOW how a harp works - especially a chromatic - to play one and do it well, and if you're not willing to break in your babies, you get what you deserve... but seriously, this is one of a few chromatics that Hohner makes (the Amadeus is another, the super 64 is maybe the 3rd) that once you have it broken in, you can **work** this harp, it responds like a masarati to a gran prix driver. Why I love the 270 - can you say ANY key availability? You get (IIRC, counting the oddball tunings, 17 or 18 harps) the ability to grab any harp and WAIL in any key... bend those reeds, warp that vibe, and even if they're playing in E flat... yeppers, you can ride that train, and do it with soul. Those that cannot play this machine... well, like your perfesser and momma said, practice, practice, practice. ;)
I have always played Hohner harmonicas and I find the Super Chromonica an excellent instrument with good rich tones in the lower ranges. I think it speaks for itself that the world's top soloists play this harmonica.
