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.

Nice tone, projects treble well due to stainless-steel covers. Has a nice weight to it, a little heavier than most low-end harps, probably due to a heavier reed plate than most cheapies.Hohner's 'Hot Metal' harp is not the greatest, but you already know that. That aside, it sure surprised me with how well it sounded. My old harp, may it rest in peace, sounded nice and mellow, but the Hot Metal covers all those tones with better clarity and projection of treble tones.All-in-all, it's the perfect "no worries pocket harp" for me to keep in my coat pocket for times when I can play a little (e.g., waiting in the car at kids' sports practice, stress-breaks at work, etc.) For the price, it's hard to beat and fun to play.

Hohner should be ashamed of this harmonica. It is not in tune. The reeds stick. It is leaky and does not have a good sound. I understand that it is a cheap harmonica, but I believe it should, nevertheless, be on key and playable since I paid for a functioning and properly tuned instrument. The same can be said of blues band, and other cheap Hohner harmonicas. Hohner should be embarrassed by the inferior quality of these harps. No matter the price of the harmonica, it should be right. I have a Hohner John Lennon model as well, and it is, at least playable and in proper tune. Hot metal harps are awful. I will not buy another Hohner because I believe all harmonics should be properly manufactured, tuned, sealed, and playable.

    Comments about Hohner 572 Hot Metal Harmonica:

    To begin, I have bought a lot of instruments from MF. Tama drums, Kentucky mandolin, pro grade PA gear. I have 5 Hot Metal harps I bought from MF 10 years ago. I play drums and harmonica at same time -- Petty & HB, Ozark Mtn. Daredevils, Blues, etc. Sound is full and rich thru our pro PA. Play and sound great after 10 yrs. You need to break a harmonica in correctly and keep them in the case while not used. My cost was 5.99 each then but this price is still OK. I have 30 yrs. live playing experience and get positive comments from musicians and patrons alike about my harmonica sound. Good buy.

          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 play mostly rock and blues, with some motown, reggae and pop thrown in. I play cross harp pretty hard. For past ten years I've used mostly Hohner Special 20s and love them. But for the occasional odd key song, or as a backup, I've used Hot Metal harps many times. And they seem to last nearly as long as harps 3-4x the price, and sound pretty good, even when doing studio recording. They are easy to bend notes on, and I don't hesitate to use them at gigs. Also a good choice for learning on.

              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.

                I bought both a D and an A tuned harmonica. It's the first Hot Metal ones I've had. So far, they are easy to play. Only time will tell how long they last, but since I'll only use them to accompany a few songs our group plays, I dought I'll wear them out.

                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!

                      I have been playing since I was 4 years old and the second harp I bought was a hot metal. I play blues and gospel and some up beat sounds. They hold out great and are comfortable in the hand. Being in the Crossroads band I have the opportunity to try many harps, but for the price and sound the Hot metals are my favorite..
