I would still prefer the Special 20, I like the feel and ease of playing. As far as keys B flat is my favorite. We had a sax player in the blues band I was in and F is a good horn players key so I used a B flat harp a lot and the singer also sang in F. You might take that into consideration if you are going to do any singing. I would say C A D G B flat & F cover most Blues. Steevie Ray Vaughn tuned his Strat to a Flat as did Hendrix, so Pride and Joy takes an A flat harp, Hes playing in E flat. Hendrix sang better in the flat thats why he tuned that way. Guitar players know when you use heavier strings and tune to the flat it changes the sound of a strat to way cool.
