INFORMATION BOOK

I like that they come in assorted colors and individual cases. I wish the cases were a little better designed to secure the instrument inside without rattling and color match to the instrument or perhaps a clear face

My Dad assumed it was because of his age (in his 80s), but with this new Marine Band Harmonica every note is crystal clear and "Amazing Grace" sounds ...

MUST LISTEN TO IT

What a difference $20 makes. Don't buy the cheaper version for $10-20. Get this one. I tried to learn how to play the Harmonica on a cheap Harmonica and had difficulty with air.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

This harmonica was a Christmas gift for my 7 year old granddaughter. She opened it on Christmas day and she was excited. She started to play it immediately and for the rest of the day.

The 5 star rating is complimentary to the price. Ready to play with no sticky notes. Decent tone. However these are not the high end of their brand

GREAT

I have been a singer my entire life, yet I don't read music that well. I watched several YouTube videos on the basics, paused them a few times while I mastered the skill and within 2 days I am now playing reasonably well

HELPFULL BOOK

Growing up, I always carried a harmonica. After my last one disappeared many years ago. I always said I'd replace it but never got around to it.

AMAZING BOOK

A couple months ago I decided out of the blue that I wanted to learn to play harmonica. I love blues and blues rock, but also a fan of the sounds of Irish and Celtic tunes and civil war era music

INFORMATION BOOK

It’s not a Hohner, but at this price point, I can’t complain about the sound or assembly. Built strong, decent sound quality, and no sharp ridges or burrs to nick the grandkids’ lips.

Bought two of these ... one for my Dad and one for me. My Dad has played for years, but his old Hohner Harmonica was not sounding very good and hearing a lot of wrong notes.

The case is very good. I purchased a single East Top Bb to go with these that is a higher quality harp and the tone is noticeably richer using it with the F and C from the set.
