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.

I recently purchased these harmonicas for my first set. I am amazed with the sound of these and so far they are very durable....they come with a grey case, lol and if you want red I suggest buying a red case, but it's just a case. The only one flaw is that the writing on the harp to tell what key it's in wares off easily and the key names for keys c and g wore off in the first two days. other than that these are great harps.

A professional music store should not sell these. Price was right. Nice case. Looks like a harmonica. Besides, single harps of quality are a bit pricey. But, like any child's instrument, it turns the experience of learning into a negative one. If you have never played harp, and don't know if you will like it (or 'get it')you will certainly never know by buying these. Many companies plant inferior products (made in a 3rd country-China) alongside their top-end line (made in Germany). Hoehner is no different in that respect. I play enough to know better, but thought I'd give them a chance. The GC store in Minneapolis carries a turnstile of harps, but the stock was a bit depleted, and there were not many to choose from, so I opted on the chance that these would do: No! Not even around the house in front of the dog. If you don't know which harp to buy, which harp might suit your needs, research the song or artist on-line to get an idea on which key to buy, because it does matter. Originally the idea behind buying these harps was to have a 'stable' of harps to find out which tune used which harp. But they became too aggravating to use.

      Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

      I have an old beaten up Blues Band in C that plays as well as my Blues Harp (which is great). I bought this set hoping at least a few would be as good. They are unplayable. I would love to return them but I broke them in (gently) and figure it is too late. What garbage. It's a shame. I didn't expect them to be high end but they should be playable. The case is nice but my Blue Harp in A doesn't fit so that's not much of a consolation.

      I got this set as a gift. I have never played a harmonica in my life. It was a great set to learn on. A harmonica has added a lot to my band Soon will be moving up to a set of Special 20's or Marine Band.

      Lots of keys, but expect to have to work on them

      By 

      from Gainesville, FL

      Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

      I read all the negative reviews and decided to take a gamble. After all, I just might get lucky and wind up with a good set. I picked these up today. Most of the reeds work fine, but each harp has a couple reeds that will need work (leaky or unresponsive). After disassembling a few of them, some of the reeds are bent at the tips as well. Unless you are willing to work on these harps, do not spend your money on them. I've had much better luck with Special 20s. I would consider myself an advanced beginner or perhaps even an intermediate player. If you've never played a harp before, please invest in something else. These will just frustrate you. If you're looking for a weekend project, and are willing to fiddle around with them, these might be worth it. I was expecting to have to gap about every 5th reed, and those expectations proved true.

      Really Depends on What You Want

      By 

      from Spring, Tx

      Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

      If you want a set of good sounding harps out of the box then you are going to be disappointed. If you want to learn how to work on a harmonica without having to worry about messing up an expensive instrument then these fit the bill. If I had to describe these harps in one word it would be inconsistent. A few sound halfway decent, a few sound pretty rough and a few have serious problems. One had a few reeds that were too short for the reed plate. These are made in China and not up to the same standard as the Hohners made in Germany. If you really want to learn to play harmonica you would be better off by getting yourself one decent quality harp and learning on it instead of buying this set which you have to tape a dollar to in order to make them worth throwing away.With these you are going to be frustrated trying to get your notes, bends and overblows to sound right.

      The is a good set to start with but the construction and materials are mediocre. I bought them to use for he occasional song my band does that has a harp part. Good value but not high quality

      Blues band are beginners harmonicas, and kit is nice, I can learn the riffs and licks on other keys, all for a food price, and the case is nice, simple yet sturdy. Recommended for serious beginners. Good deal for a descent price.

      Beginner to Intermediate - Great Budget Harps.

      By 

      from California

      Comments about Hohner Blues Band 7-Piece Harmonica Set 1501:

      These harps are playable but in no way comparable to the Special 20s, If you are looking for full rich sounds and bend-ability and low air volume playing. I recommend the Hohner Special 20 5 pack. (Made in Germany). This set however is made in China. If your strapped for cash then this is a decent alternative. Hohner is Obviously trying to get the budget market with Harps Made in China. Not an unusual tactic for major corporations looking to increase the bottom line. Quality was sacrificed. I am happy with both of my purchases. But I do prefer the Special 20s.
