Overview

The legendary Special 20 harmonica offers unique qualities in its response, superior bending, and a rich tone. Featuring a durable, airtight, plastic comb, it has become the harmonica of choice for recording artist John Popper (Blues Traveler), as well as musicians that enjoy a wide variety of genres from country and folk, to rhythm and blues. Available in 12 major keys as well as a special Country Tuning, which features a major 7th when played in the cross harp position.

With their excellent response and great tone, diatonic harmonicas from HOHNER have earned a worldwide reputation for the finest quality. They are frequently referred to as "Blues Harps" and are primarily used as melody instruments in blues, rock, pop, country and folk as well as other styles.

    Slow Response!

    Comments about Hohner Progressive Series 560 Special 20 Harmonica:

    I have been playing harp for twenty years and his new model of the special 20 has the slowest response time I have ever encountered. It's in the key of D so there is no excuse or reason for that. Unless caveat is that the harp lasts for five years of heavy playing. So that is yet to be seen. There has also been a steady decline in overall harmonica quality over the past 20 years. It's a shame. No pride in craftsmanship anymore.

    Comments about Hohner Progressive Series 560 Special 20 Harmonica:

    Hohner sent me a "New" harp to replace the bad one. I guess someone finally decided I got the run-around & corrected the problem. My new Special 20 G is playing great!

    Comments about Hohner Progressive Series 560 Special 20 Harmonica:

    Hate to write about this problem, but its what happened: This was My favorite harmonica-- (The Spec 20)-- until I bought 2 new ones, an E & G at Guitar Center & they were both defective-out of tune. Hohner replaced the E but refused to fix the other one saying I had taken it apart. This G harp was to be a back up as my 3 year old G was getting weak. It was a few days out of warranty but they said that was not the problem. It was brand new--just taken out of the box---I had played it about 5 minutes & did NOT take it apart. The harmonica they returned appears NOT to be the one I sent in as it looks old, worn, & scratched. Probably will NOT buy another Hohner even though I "did" like the playability and sound, I now question the dependability, & Customer service. I don't know what happened with this ordeal but it was NOT something I did to this defective harmonica. Real sad situation, as I "only" have about 70 Hohner harmonicas of all types, (I switch around when playing.) Several are out of tune but I never returned them--they are basically junk now)
