Hohner has discontinued some of the keys in the model. If you do not see them listed that means Hohner USA no longer has stock.

The name evokes the typical blues sound. It is a metaphor for whiskey bars  and good times; synonymous with wide plains, open fields, and pilgrimage: The Blues Harp®. For over 50 years, the harmonica has shaped the sound of blues, rock, and sometimes even folk. The Blues Harp® is designed for this specific blues sound, but thanks to the modular system it can easily be adjusted and changed to anything you want it to be – easy, quickly, at any time. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, the Blues Harp® is the harp for you.

Really good harmonica

I have e three of these harps, the ones that come in the "pro pack" of C, G and A. I also have a set of 10 Suzuki Bluesmasters that I will be comparing these too. Now, both the Blues master and Blules harp are great instruments. I recommend them both, but there are a few differences. For one, the Hohner is louder, much much louder, which is cool. Both are pretty easy to bend, but I feel like the Suzuki goes flat on the three hole draw without precise breath control, whereas the Hohner is much more forgiving. So if you are just learning to bend then the Hohner is the better choice, but the difference is minimal (I learned bending on the Suzuki after all). The other big difference is the comb, with the Hohner being wood. Does it sound different? Maybe, but it's hard for me to tell. It does affect the feel in your mouth. Not better or worse, just different. Lastly is the reeds. Hohner uses brass with a more traditional tuning, whereas Suzuki uses phosphor bronze and a modern tuning. So the Hohner has that kind of raspier, bluesier tone to it if you know what I mean. I bit dirtier. Id love to hear it mic'd up, like a Chicago blues set up. I'd also get the Blues Harp over the Marine Band. Easier to maintain, thicker plates, the comb doesn't swell. Anyway, great harp. I plan on buying more eventually.

Blues Harp

I usually play my Marine Bands exclusively, but decided to get a Blues Harp in A from my go to source, Rockin' Ron... Great sound, good feel, wood comb and a very nice looking harmonica as well.. I would recommend.
