Overview

The Hohner Blues Bender P.A.C. professional harmonica gives everybody access to the bluesy notes needed to make any blues or rock riff complete. The Blues Bender P.A.C. harmonica's Patented Acoustic Covers are based on Hohner's famous Marine Band harp but with thicker-than-normal reed plates for consistent tone and durability.

Originally patented by Jacob Hohner in 1897, the special shape of Blues Bender harmonica's cover increases the volume of air between the reeds and coverplates which-when thrown into vibration and vented through the special side vents-means greater volume and projection. The Blues Bender harp is extremely airtight between the mouthpiece and the reed plates, for easier note bending and enhanced expressive playing.

Professional harmonica player Li'l Ronnie (of Lil' Ronnie and the Grand Dukes) rated the Blues Bender P.A.C. as his top choice for ease of playability, note bending, and consistent volume and tone when compared against other models.

Here's what harmonica players like Li'l Ronnie and others have had to say about the Blues Bender P.A.C.:

"The Blues Bender P.A.C. is a killer value." - Li'l Ronnie of Li'l Ronnie and the Grand Dukes.

"The Blues Bender P.A.C. is the perfect harp to learn on and we expect it to be a very popular addition to our product line," - Scott Emmerman of Hohner, Director of Marketing and Sales.

"A fantastic first harp to develop your chops on." - Roger Edsall of the Bad Influence band.

Comments about Hohner Blues Bender P.A.C. Harmonica:

Bought it expecting no problems but instantly realized the difference switching from a Hot Metal Hohner. Not sure if was me but the first two holes needed a very light breath to bring out the note bright and clear. Had to adjust the reeds inside by opening it up and slightly bend them for a easier draw and blow. Made it easier to hit them now. Just had it for 2 weeks, so far so good though.

Comments about Hohner Blues Bender P.A.C. Harmonica:

If you ever read the description by Hohner, reverse it.
Bought one, returned it right away.
Was it a bad one? You bet!
Was that an exception?
I don't know, no one tried to convince me that they are, they probably know what it is

Comments about Hohner Blues Bender P.A.C. Harmonica:

I have been playing for about a year and I am learning to play blues and jazz. I bought two Blues Benders and one was missing two notes IMMEDIATELY! I was able to open it up and get them back, but that's not how I wanted to start our relationship. The other one played but I didn't think notes were any easier to bend than on my other harps. The sound was ......okay. I like my Lee Oskars best, but for a beginners set at an excellent price try Hohner's Piedmont Blues set. They are all plastic but play and sound great at a rock bottom price. When you learn to play a little better you can upgrade...but not, in my opinion, to Blues Bender.
