In Reply to: Johnson Blues King Harmonicas? posted by Bonodeb on June 14, 2001 at 09:52:07:
: I just bought a set of 6 brand new Johnson Blues King harmonicas for $20 on ebay.. are these any good or did I just buy 6 lemons?
A local music shop proprietor gave me a Johnson Blues King harmonica (key of D). Of course, if you're looking for a discount, free of charge is really hard to beat! Seriously, I think that the Blues King is comparable to the other harmonicas which are on the market.
I've also bought some of the Jambone harmonicas, which are also very low priced. They're not bad either.
I love playing harmonicas and unless the harmonica is one of those really cheap plastic toys, or defective, I will probably enjoy playing it, until the reeds wear out! A decent harmonica does not have to have a high price tag. If it does, probably no one else would notice. Fake diamonds and cheap harmonicas have this in common: they can fool most people!
Have fun with your harmonicas and draw your own conclusions.
Wishing you success in your endeavors.
