 Randy's response: Get a Hohner Special 20 instead. Much better air seal 
(since I'm a pucker player, that's important). Most of my heroes play 
Marine Bands but I've always preferred the Special 20s or the Golden 
Melodys (not to mention Lee Oskars and even Huang Silvertones over the 
Marine Bands). But of course, such opinions are the reasons God created 
more than one kind of harp :)
