OK, opinion. I love my Suzuki Pro harps (play mostly celtic, folk, 
very few bends). They play nice, are comfortable to hold and on the
lips, and the chrome plating seems to last forever. Not so my
Hohners. The cheap suzukis are crap, like to slice and diced my
lips until I cleaned up the reed plate.

As for Suzukis, my local harp dealer says Suzuki has a satisfaction
guarantee (90 days I believe) for the Pro harps. Even if you don't
like how it plays they will swap it. I have excerised this with a
non-bendable 4 hole (after break-in for 2 months). Swap no problem
the dealer sends the rejects back to the factory.
