INFORMATION BOOK

I like that they come in assorted colors and individual cases. I wish the cases were a little better designed to secure the instrument inside without rattling and color match to the instrument or perhaps a clear face

What a difference $20 makes. Don't buy the cheaper version for $10-20. Get this one. I tried to learn how to play the Harmonica on a cheap Harmonica and had difficulty with air.

GREAT

I have been a singer my entire life, yet I don't read music that well. I watched several YouTube videos on the basics, paused them a few times while I mastered the skill and within 2 days I am now playing reasonably well

My little sister enjoys this harmonica. It’s durable and has survived through being dropped many times. Great sound quality and kid-proof.

It’s not a Hohner, but at this price point, I can’t complain about the sound or assembly. Built strong, decent sound quality, and no sharp ridges or burrs to nick the grandkids’ lips.

Bought two of these ... one for my Dad and one for me. My Dad has played for years, but his old Hohner Harmonica was not sounding very good and hearing a lot of wrong notes.

NICE ONE

The case is very good. I purchased a single East Top Bb to go with these that is a higher quality harp and the tone is noticeably richer using it with the F and C from the set.

My son's and I all share a love of music. My oldest got one and so I purchased these for my youngest and myself. We both love them. They're good quality and the cases are well made. I see us having these for a long time
