Good enough for Paul deLay, good enough for me.

Synic says:

Another great review. Keep up the good work jake!

Gerardo Villegas says:

Between the Hohner Big River and the Easstop 008k, which of the two harps would you recommend?

Big Boss says:

You should include lessons of Bob Dylan’s harmonica parts or any other artists.

Marley Cauffing says:

I’m still waiting for some East Top harmonica reviews; they’re one of the few I can actually buy out here in Asia.

Anthony Monaghan says:

Wow…that is a bright room! I bought a Hohner Big River ‘Bb’ today and find it quite different to play than my special twenty. I think prefer my Hohner Blues harp, but they’re all different. I’m finding a little bit of air leaking, but I see that as a challenge rather than a fault. It’s very comfortable in the hand, not as loud as my Hohner blues harp. The big river is brighter than my other two harps, and the three hole bend is nice and raspy. Cool harp all in all. Loving the Bb key. Really different to my C and A keys. Looking forward to investing in a G at some stage. Need to practice more however. Thanks Jake.

The MS harps were put out by Hohner to compete with the Lee Oskars when those got popular. Now, I don’t like Lee Oskars myself but I picked up a Big River on a lark and was surprised how nice it sounds out of the box. Not my favorite harp (that would be the Crossover), but nice.

Thank you for this review jake, I have one Big River (it’s my first harmónica), I get all draw bends but trying hard… I see you recommend Special 20, I’ll give them a try buying my second in key of A. Thank you again and lets keep harping

Kryynism says:

I ordered a Big River custom from Antony Dannecker in D with a brass chome last month. it’s taking so long. @_@ It’s as if you knew and are reminding me of my terrible and most agonizing wait.

Jake 3752 says:

To be entirely honest, I like playing a Blues Harp with this one’s cover plates. The Blues Harp’s cover plates are shaped sort of awkwardly, but I love the wood comb’s look and sound. I’ve tried plastics and they just don’t groove the same and look a bit like toys.
