Thank you Jake for all the lessons and reviews you share about harmonicas, when I firrs buy a Hohner diatonic harmonica, than thanks of your videos I learned about Special 20 it wasn’t easy to find one, but finally I have already a Special 20 and there is really a big difference betzeen the two harmonicas

Aaron Verdugo says:

I found that harmonica on amazon but there is an option to select A, B, Bb, C, D, Dd … etc. Which should I choose? This would be my first harmonica to start playing for the first time ever. Thanks.

Michael Albro says:

Just plan on paying $40 for a Harmonica no matter the manufacturer, $10 harps from China are just that.., $10 harps from China!

Brad Sterling says:

c or g? what key?

Variety Gamer says:

Hey Jake, I’m just getting into Harmonica, what should I pick up? The “c” “b”, etc. I’m going to get this brand if you recommend it. I just need to know what letter. (Sorry I don’t know what the letters are called for a harmonica.)

Adil Giara says:

Special 20 or big river ? Which one to buy need to upgrade ?

harmoanicuh

That Dude There says:

price on special 20 should be less than the marine band. plastic is used to mass produce and wood takes more time and money. That’s why toys are basically all plastic now and most things have moved to plastic. It’s a money grab, and I’m probably about to go spend mine on one. ughhhh

rura58 says:

What model and brand of harmonica would you recommend to play along with a guitar?

Mohamed Yasser says:

plz may you write there name in the replay plz

EFR Turkey says:

Hello Jake. I am currently on holiday in Munich, Germany and I went to a music shop today and bought myself a Special 20. I can’t thank you enough for your recommendation. Thank you so much.

Djooko Tv says:

Hi Jake ! thanks for the informations ^^ i’m a beginner too but i want know if the hohner marine band ‘C’ is ok for western music spécially bluegrass! if doesn’t.. what kind is more suitable do u think..
thanks man–

Cormac Mcgrath says:

Why is the C note so important?

Comxz2 says:

excuse me Jake i wanna tell you a qustion because i’m a beginner in harmonica, anyway i got SWAN Harmonica and here picture is that: http://imgur.com/a/l6oub and its red one okay so i wanna tell me if its great for me or bad and actually its works nice but some times it become sucks with me so i wanna your advice please. 🙂

spyralspyder says:

I cant get where I need to be as fast as on my marine band….. with wet lips…. Otherwise I’m in for trouble

MakoRuu says:

They’re only $15 on Amazon and eBay.

game dude says:

The reviews on the new special 20’s are looking pretty bad. Do you have any other recommendations?

Caerwyn de Lacielle says:

Would you still recommend Special 20 to this day? It IS a bit expensive for me ($40, which is its price here, is quite a lot where I’m from), so I hoped that maybe over the years the situation with the cheaper harmonicas improved at least somewhat.
