Quality harmonica
Jaakko L 12.01.2019
I am an absolute beginner, one day hoping to be able to play the blues. Having no experience in other harmonicas, I ended up buying the Special 20 after a fair bit of research. The harmonica feels like a product of good quality, robust construction and it is also stylish. Playing is easy. My non existent skills aside, the notes and chords come easy and the sound is beautiful.

I haven't been disappointed in the Special 20 as my first harmonica. The Little Lady harmonica that came with the deal is also a delight, huge sound for something so small!

Only con's come from the Special 20's plastic case, which could be nicer. I store the thing in a microfiber (or something) pouch meant for sunglasses.

Alltogether, I can recommend the Special 20.

Go to harp for beginner!
slugger220 02.01.2019
I've owned this harp for a few years now, and while I'm no professional - I do enjoy playing it. I bought it off the recommendation of another musician and have yet to be disappointed!

I normally am playing the guitar and singing, so I'll have this on a holder and use it throughout the songs. I'm not a technical player, so I can't say too much on that front, but for those who perform with the classic "troubadour" image - I can recommend it.

It sounds good. It's easy to play. And easy to clean when needed.

Brilliant purchase!
DanBoulter 19.06.2014
After many years of playing the guitar, I thought it was about time to buy a harmonica to play along with some blues. After much research on the internet, I discovered that this is seen as one of the best harmonicas around, both for beginners in general, as well as blues. I was surprised to see that this is seen as a 'higher end' harmonica, as I see the price to be very reasonable.

Although I am no expert in harmonicas, I can definitely see why this is such an attractive option. The sound that comes out of this is crisp and precise, which will suit any playing style, especially the blues. It is easy to bend the notes, which leads to less learning frustration and ease of playing.

Definitely one for the guitar bag!

A
really good value for money
Anonymous 02.10.2016
Actually I 'm a guitar guy, and wanted to buy my first harmonica. After a long search amongst other reasonably priced harmonicas, Hohner Special 20 Classic was the one to go. The comments here and some youtube vids made it clear,that it was a good choice.

It sounds good,in tone and volume terms. It feels more expensive than it really is and maybe it a good choice for everyone and not only the newcomer.

Best part of the story? You can have it with you almost everywhere and still have the blues with you!
Thank you, thomann!
