Top critical review
Looks and feels good "BUT"
Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2019
quick and dirty review, Iv'e played for 7 years( guitar for 45) Played most pro brands. Read the reviews and I know this is not promoted as a "High End" instrument. unfortunately based on reviews , I decided to take a chance on one "C" harmonica. I actually need a couple of cheaper flat key harps and I don't use them that often and thought I'd try an "off" brand. I got it and I"ll say it looks and feels great. That was about all the good I could say. The first blow and I knew It was a poorly adjusted/gapped and thin sounding harmonica. I took it apart and re gapped it which helped. Also, hammered the exit end of the face plates which are mostly blocked off, this also gave it a bit more volume. OK, I can use this as a backup harp in a pinch but after playing a few riffs I realized the machined metal edge where the mouth rests on the comb, has a really sharp and protruding slot to align the face plate and it's for sure going to grab some flesh if you are playing with any speed. Other harmonicas have this slot but it is not nearly as pronounced as this on is. About being in tune, 1,2,3,4 as a cord is out of tune In closing, In my opinion, this would be ok for a beginner (as was stated) or an emergency backup instrument but is not an out of the box and onto the stage harmonica. After having been all negative on this one, I still may purchase a couple of the flat keys just because their half the price of a Honer Special 20 and as stated, I don't often use the flat keys.
