A few months ago a ran across an inexpensive harmonica called a "Sousa Band." I bought a Bb and an F.
While they aren't as good as a Lee Oskar or a Special 20, they sure beat the hell out of any other "low-end" harp.
Has anyone else bought any of these? If so, were yours as good as mine?
The only things I don't like about them are that A. you can't find them in most stores and B. they seem to leak a little bit of air resulting in a harp that isn't quite as loud.
The worst I've played so far are the "3-for-$10" specials from Musicians Friend. While they are a cheap way to get those keys you don't have, they are extremely airy and taste like plastic. Not very loud either, because of the airy-ness.
As for all the people talking about their bum Lee Oskars, I bought a D and I have never had a single problem with it. I'll definetely buy more.
