Overview

Awesome response, superior bendability and the sweetest tone ever. The Special 20 harp is the first choice for those learning to play. Its special airtight design makes it the most recommended go-to harp for harmonica players of any style, including blues, country, folk or rock. The plastic comb doesn't absorb moisture making it longer lasting. Harp of choice of harmonica virtuoso John Popper (of Blues Traveler) and played by Bob Dylan on his 2007/08 tour. Chances are your favorite player has several of these harps in his case. 12 major keys plus lower and higher octave tunings. Also available in a Special Country tuning with a major 7th in cross harp position.

Hohner Special 20

By Captain Greg

from Knoxville, Tennessee

Comments about Hohner Special 20 Harmonica:

As a relative newcomer to the harmonica scene, I decided that I would try several different brands and types of harmonica. Although the Hohner Special 20 was recommended to me by several other harp players, I had to decide for my self. I tried 3 or 4 other brands of harp and played them daily for months. After replacing reeds in a couple of them and trashing some others, I purchased a Special 20. I have been playing my Special 20's now for over a year and have yet to blow out any reeds on them. While some other harps have a dirtier, blusier sound, for pure sweet single notes and ease of play I have not found a better harp than the 20. I still own several other brands in different keys, but I am gradually replacing all of them with the 20. Another great feature of the MS series Special 20 is that you can replace the reed plates, which saves about $10.00 over a whole new harp. I am attending Jon Gindick's Harmonica Jam Camp this fall and the Hohner Special 20 is the harp I will pack!

My first Harmonica

By chris

from huntington beach, ca

Comments about Hohner Special 20 Harmonica:

Yes, as this is my first harmonica, I don't have much to compare it to. But I can tell you, I am completely happy with it, and have had a few others tell me it sounds great. I searched several sites and this harmonica had the best reviews, for the price.

Awesome Sound

By Greg Blanks

from Mesquite, TX

Comments about Hohner Special 20 Harmonica:

I ordered another brand at the same time as this, both onsale for about the same price and the sould of the Honer Special 20 is quite a bit better than the other brand. This is a very nice harmonica, especially if you can find it onsale!

harmonica is nice, but the box damaged

By Ponce Zabalaga

from Sunland, Ca

Comments about Hohner Special 20 Harmonica:

the harmonica plays nicely. I like this harmonica, but unfortunately the harmonica box was damaged when I received it, which is a shame. I definitely needed that box to be functional. otherwise, the harmonica is great.

Comments about Hohner Special 20 Harmonica:

I've tried many different harps but always come back to the Special 20. If you're serious about your playing, don't waste your money on others. This is the one!

spec. 20 by hohner

By alex

from atlanta, georgia

Comments about Hohner Special 20 Harmonica:

its definently the best plastic one for your money. has nice tone, easy bends, and lasts for quite a while. wouldn't suggest getting anything lower than a Bb though, because plastic is very tinny. marine bands are the way to go
