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.

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

By Daniel

from Gainesville, FL

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 Rob

from Spring, Tx

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.

By Chris Cocallas

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

5 Harmonicas

By Marty Miller

Never played harmonica, so thought I would try these first, since they were on sale. They seem nice enough to learn on.

Great beginners kit

By Joseph Musquiz

from Lincoln, NE

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 Michael Cordero

from California

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.

Quite nice for the price!

By Dale Riebesehl

from Milwaukee, WI

I have read several very negative reviews on several sites. I must truly admit that the set I just purchased at Guitar Center is quite nice! The harps are well built and almost flawless reed wise. The lower pitched harps G, A and Bb have an especially good tone and intonation. I do realize that their may be inconsistencies between different sets, but my set is quite good. Any experienced folk and ethnic musician will know about the intonation issues that occur in our instruments and how to play them to their advantage. I must say, quite nice for the price!

Can't Beat this Bargain

By Thomas Hoffarth

from Indiana

I have been playing harps since the 60's and you won't find a better deal than this. My case of harps was stolen at a jam session and I needed to replace them quickly. This is the ticket. They arrived two days after I placed the order. Now I am all set to jam with the boys at the club on Wed. night. I will replace these with better more durable harps as I blow these out(and you will eventually blow out any harp),but for now I am grateful for this set. Just about any 10 hole harp will fit in this case. The case I have is black. I have read reviews here that say the case is red or gray(as if that matters). If you only play in one or two different keys or you want a harmonica that is more durable I suggest you pay more and get a better harp. But if you need all the major keys like I do in a hurry then you can't beat this deal.

best for beginners

By Gary George

from pasaden, ca

I've had these for a few weeks now and got about 15 hrs of practice on 5 keys. for sure the best value to learn them all and get good. not that air tight compared to more expensive sets, but it will make you better as technique practice is key!
