          It seems everything is made in China these days, nice harp for the price but I don't expect it to last long.

          Great harps, but..

          Comments about Hohner Old Standby Harmonica:

          I recieved the 2 Hohner Old Standbys yesterday. I opened the Bb harp first, gave it a try and thought what a deal! Feels solid, plays well sounds great. Then I opened the one in the key of A and found hole 3 totally dead on blow and draw, and holes 6 thru 10 performing poorly and the whole harp generally difficult to play. I took the thing apart found brass filings inside and some stuck reeds. I gave it a thorough cleaning and hand tuned the reeds with the help of a web search, and after an hour or so of work, have another great harp, almost but not quite as good as my German harps. Its working perfectly. I think this indicates some quality control issues with the China made Hohners. I will order more of these. They turned out to be great harps. I enjoy tinkering with instuments, but if you lack the skill, or confidence to do some tuning and modifying on your own you may want to invest in a German made Hohner.

          VERY Poor instrument

          By Mark

          from College Station, TX

          Comments about Hohner Old Standby Harmonica:

          I ordered this harmonica as a low-end option so that I did not have to worry about losing it or damaging it. Additionally, I did not expect the sound quality to be all that great. However, I did expect it to play. I can't even use it for the one song that I ordered it for. If you need to draw on a single note, you will not be happy. For that matter, if you need to play any single note, you will probably end up red in the face for more than one reason. Do not consider buying this harmonica for a beginner or they will never play. This is a non-returnable item for Guitar Center. Probably a good choice on their part. By the way, I have a Hohner Golden Melody that plays well except for one note.

          Purchased a harmonica, over the phone, for a relative and had it sent to him. Every thing went well. I am a return customer things went great the first time and did this time also. Highly recommended. Thanks Walt

          The Old Standby is!

          By Dennis Buck

          from Rockville, MD

          Comments about Hohner Old Standby Harmonica:

          I've used these since my late teens-early 20s--that's at least 40 years ago. Always thought them superior to the Marine band, at least for the money. No reason to change that opinion now. They play easily both on blow and draw (read that they were designed with slightly larger holes for beginners). Bend easily. They stay in tune a longer time then other Hohner MIC models. 2 changes since I used 'em when I was a kid: plastic comb and flanges on the back of the plates. Really like the latter, since I can now use them in a holder--back in the day they didn't and I couldn't. I always thought these were a great bargain and the FEW that I can find these days confirm my ages-old opinion. Some word out there that they're discontinued. Hope it's not so!
