As you know Joe I come from a long line of Schmendrick's, no offence taken.

So..as a former detective I tore this subject apart. Here are some of my results. 
1.. The manufacturer is partially at fault. 
2.. They ‘should’ have a list of genuine dealers. 
3.. I seriously doubt that they would make a small sale. 1000 is probably the min. 
4.. When they see a name that is not their ‘authorized’ dealer a red flag should go up. 
5.. They should ask themselves: Where are the harps going and and what price? 

I myself would rather use an auth. dealer inasmuch as they are probably ‘such & such U.S.A.’ harmonicas, Joe Schmendrick proprietor. 
Joe probably has employees. Whom need frivolities like: shelter, food, shoes, etc. This means that there is money circulating LOCALLY. 

BUT, of course, Harry Bradervelt, the UNauthorized dealer also needs these ‘luxuries’. So he may buy a large quantity and then to make 
up for the fact that his overhead is lower, he lives in a lower economy area, is able to discount the harps even farther than said authorized 
dealer. So..he may be hurting the authorized dealer. Coupled of course with what 'Jer’ said. No customer service. No customer relations. 
See there’s a reason that manufactures allow certain entities to sell their harps. They must have passed some sort of ‘entry criteria’ in the 
first place. 

I also agree on the music part, the stolen part, and the counterfeit part. And no offense intended to anyone named Schmendrick or Bradervelt. 
I picked those names out of thin air. Which is what ya’all should be doing right now. Sending some air through a harp. lolol.

They took a long time in coming and I could see from the packaging that they may have been held up in customs. Fake, no not by my definition. They are real Suziki harps and not fake and look just like my others. The harps have worked as well as any of my other Manjis.
