Overview

The 10-hole, diatonic Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica has a smooth and comfortable plastic comb, brass reeds, and stainless steel covers. It's an economical harmonica for those looking to rock out while playing rock 'n' roll or lay down some blues. The 572 Hot Metal is similar to Hohner's Old Standby harmonica but with a little more edge and a brighter sound. It's tough, durable, easy-on-the-wallet, and a great starter harp for those just finding their chops.

      Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

      I have used Hohner Special 20 and Big River Harps successfully for years. I had hoped that, despite the low price and Chinese origin, by buying Hohner I could expect a useable product, at least in the short term. Nope. The tones were quiet and thin. Increasing breath affected pitch. I used the product on two gigs - acoustic single, only employing the harp on one or two songs - and, by the the third, there were a couple of notes so out of tune that I could not use the instrument with my guitar. Not good.

        Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

        I'm surprised at the durability of my old C Hot Metal. This is the one that rides in the car and in my pocket. It has taken abuse no good harmonica should suffer and still plays great after 10 years. (I clean it often) The reed plates and reeds seem to be quite thin but there are more screws to hold the plates to the comb. It seems to be quite air-tight and it's easy to bend notes. Sound is not as rich as some pricier harmonicas but not bad for a cheap harmonica.

        Big mistake buying these

        By BOB

        from Adrian, Mi

        Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

        I bought 4 of these harps on sale, The A&D were playable, the other two, G&C were BAD!---out of tune & impossible to play. Hohner should recall & trash these Harps. They are "cheap" apparently for a good reason, not even worth the low price. I WAS going to recommend these to students, but no way now. I've had problems with bad reeds in the Special 20's too. SAD situation! What's really "strange" about the Hot Metal Harps is they have various 'blurry' KEY stampings on the ends of the harps like they have been re-manufactured or different cover plates put on another type harp???? I play several hours a week & sorry to say, Hohner Harmonica quality has really gone downhill!

        Save your Ten Bucks

        By Freddie Bennett

        Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

        I bought this to try out Harmonica. What a waste of $10. it plays most of the notes but a couple of the draws are dead. Tried adjusting the reeds to no avail. Would cost me more in gas to drive and return it then it's worth. Lesson learned you get what you pay for most of the time, not this time. Save your money and buy a decent harp,don't waste it on this junk.

        Cheap but does work.

        By Dan Nobles

        from Charleston, SC

        Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

        Guess you get what you pay for. Bought one in G to try out a different key. I have a Special 20 in C which I was learning on. The harp does work and all the draws work. However; the sound quality is no where near the more expensive Special 20. The projection is weaker and it much harder to play. I can hear the escaping air on this one versus the Special 20 which all I hear is the note. If you want something to play around with and don't want to spend much, go with the Bluesband, it's even cheaper. If you want something that sounds good go with higher end German made Hohners.

        A decent beginner harp worth every penny

        By Jake Robinson

        from New Lebanon

        Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

        I have 2 of these which I bought earlier this year. They come in the Hohner hard plastic 2 piece box with the Hot Metal logo on it. It's not easy to carry around in the box because the harp moves around and makes a ton of noise. I would recommend a beginner buy 1 or 2 of these in different keys to get a feel before investing in more expensive harps. As for sound, the 2 that I own sound good enough to play in front of an audience. Their construction isn't as high of quality as the other Hohner harps that I own (Hot Metal harps are made in China). Either way, for less than $10 you are getting a harp that can stand on it's own against more expensive instruments. I give this 5 stars because this harmonica does exactly what Hohner says it will.

        Great Pick

        By Shamy Nas

        from Richmond, VA

        Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

        This was my first Hohner harmonica and it;s only my second time I purchase a harmonica. The sound and the feel of this harmonica has a very unique preformance. I bought the key of C, most common key, and it can play any song I wanted to. To learn any song on this harmonica is very endless. I purchase a right one.
