The world's first harmonica designed especially for Blues, the Blues harp features a wood body for natural tone, powerful reeds for deep, gutsy note bending and sturdy covers that allow airtight hand control. This is the most popular Richter (diatonic) model. Wooden comb, replaceable brass reed plates, affixed with screws. Bright, powerful sound.
The Hohner Blues Harp is an MS design harp. The abbreviation ‘MS’ stands for Modular System, a totally new concept in harmonica design from Hohner. MS harmonicas incorporate technical innovations which not only make them play better, but also improve handling and ease of maintenance. All MS components (comb, reedplates and covers) are compatible with one another, so that parts from different models can be combined to suit the individual requirements of the player. All components are secured with screws, allowing rapid and easy assembly and disassembly.
The Hohner Blues harmonica is any serious blues players first port of call. Yes there are more expensive blues harmonicas but this.is more than good enough to both learn on and to perform live at any level.
Having bought my first over 25 years ago I am now replacing some which got neglected.
Learn how to maintain your harmonica and it will last longer than 25 years.
Fantastic instrument. No need for a microphone to practice but to play some electric blues, distort the microphone and turn up the bass, add reverb and BOOM, a wall of sound from something so small.
