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.

Yes, I am a beginner to harping, but have a minor in music and play several instruments.I an an intermediate level blues lead guitarist and wanted to expand my repertoire with the blues harp. I took a short class that came with a cheap, Chinese made C harp (Mojo Deluxe) and a small book. I bought this Hohner set so I could play in other keys. I trusted the Hohner name, but I am disappointed. The Mojo harp plays easier that the C harp in this kit, has more volume, and a richer tone. I learned to bend a couple of notes on the Mojo but couldn't do it on this one. After about an hour of playing, the white "C" on the harp was rubbed away and you can't tell what key it's in. So I experimented... I ordered a Fender Blues Deluxe ($9.95), also in C. There is absolutely no comparison between this Fender harp and these Hohners... it blows them away (pun intended), and the Mojo harp as well. Much greater tone, playability, and finish. Yes, it cost a little more, but very little--about $4 per harp. I am going back to GC tomorrow to order a set of these Fenders. I'll have an extraFender C harp, so I'll just throw that in my car.
NOTE: I don't blame GC for the lack of quality. I guess you get what you pay for.

My opinion!

By Benny

from Chicago Illinois

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

The seven piece, Hohner Blues Band harmonica set with case, is an excellent value for children and beginners. I really just bought this harmonica set for the Hardshell case and to have some extra harps to practice with. The Blues Bands harps themselves sounds kind of flat and fill a bit flimsy (I'm not a big fan of the plastic comb either), but in the overall scheme of things I'm happy with the purchase. �ۡ��̏Inexpensive, nice case, with decent Harps. I can't complain!�ۡ�ݕ�_ I could definitely recommend this product!

RED CASE advertised as being in stock??

By R Scott

from Bel Air, Md

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

I recently ordered this product from your business.I ordered a "RED" case, which you advertised as having in stock.When I received it, a "GREY" case came.The idea of Red was to match everything I have in musical equiptment.To Top out my experience. I called the Refund phone number on said receipt and the man couldn't help me at all.Suggested that "I" call Hohner myself.NOT the best customer service ..Well, you folks asked. I now have a grey case that's unsightly plain. Thanks, Ray Scott

    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.

    Really Depends on What You Want

    By Rob

    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.

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

    By Daniel

    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.

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

      All seven harps could not produce a note when drawn. Reeds are not properly assembled in harmonica. Many good harps need to be broken in prior to consistent use. I've been working these out for two weeks, and frankly I've picked up my daughter's blue and orange plastic harmonica and nailed it compared to these. Nice case. These dogs won't hunt.

          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'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!

          Can't Beat this Bargain

          By Thomas Hoffarth

          from Indiana

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

          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.

          Buy a Real One

          By JR SMITH

          from Minneapolis, MN

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

          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.

          Beginner to Intermediate - Great Budget Harps.

          By Michael Cordero

          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.

                Case is OK, Harmonicas are not

                from Houston, Texas

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

                I also bought this primarily for the case, and thought I would spend the bit of extra money to get some spare harmonicas. The case is not bad, but the harmonicas are of very poor quality. They are very difficult to play and sound very flat. It is almost impossible to get a good sound from them. If I were to buy again, I would just buy a good case and get some better harmonicas.
