: I am a huge Blues Traveler fan and it's all the smokin' harmonica sounds in their music that turned me onto playing the harmonica. Does anyone here know which band-member plays the harmonica, and what type/brand/key he uses?
Nick is correct: John Popper, but I myself like the Special 20. That preference aside, regardless of what harp you like, nothing beats being well rounded in musical taste and nothing beats practice! No particular harp will make you sound "just like so and so".. Only hours of practice.
Some other players to listen to: Juinor Wells, Toots Thielemans (chromatic), Carlos DelJunco, Sonny Boy Williamson.....
There's lots of great info here, and at Jack's Harmonica Heaven and my site: www.geocities.com/mottabona/harmonica.html
Keep a playn'
