Re: [Harp-L] 2012 Out of the box harmonica recomendations

I like Hohner MS Blues Harps. I find them reliable well made  harmonicas.
However, although I don't care for them myself, Lee Oskar diatonic  
harmonicas made by Japanese manufacturer Tombo, would probably be ideal for  your 
requirements.They are well made, reliable and last for a long time.
Best of luck,

<<  I'm about to make a harmonica purchase. 
I love the tones and shape of  basic hohner marine bands, special 20's do 
OK, do not need or want the easy  bending blues harps. I use a variety of 
other brands as I search for the  mostly consistant, durable harmonica. 
I won't be doing any customizing,  just playing long shows and lots of 
them, acoustic, electric, loud and  quiet.
I'm not spending $100.00 and do not want to spend $50.00 for a  harmonica 
unless it's great. It has to be durable, stay in tune, the high  notes can't 
go flat after three weeks.
recently tried the Bluesmaster from  Suzuki, not quite durable enough, 
Suzuki harpmaster is hanging in there but I  use the key less.
I'm only looking for a great sounding, durable,  affordable, out of the box 
harmonica ... any recommendations for spring of  2012? 
PS fine print: No one will be held accountable to  their reply from me. I 
know this is subject to personal taste, style and  luck.  >>
