RE: What types?
I use Marine Bands mostly -- they last longer and sound the best of
the Hohner harps. The Blues Harp is easier to bend but it doesn't last
and I don't like the way it feels. I have never played l Lee Oskars
and I'm curious about them.
The Pocket Pal is a nice little harp (I think it comes in G too). I
like plastic harps to carry in my pocket; the Special 20 is my
Most of the important players used Marine Bands, but not all.
Musselwhite plays all sorts of stuff, and Sonny Boy Williamson II was
famous for using really cheap harps.
Has anyone ever played Hohner's Meisterklasse? It's an $80 diatonic
harp, and I cannot imagine what would make it worth $80.
