: : Hello, I'm very keen on learning how to play the harmonica and after reading a lot of the articles on this webpage and the message board, I've come to the conclusion that the best harmonica to start off with is either a Key C Lee Oskar Diatonic or Hohner Special 20.
: : Unfortunately, where I live (Hong Kong), I can't find any vendors selling either of these models. Could you please give me some advice on which of the following models besides the previously mentioned 2, which i should get to start off with, thanks!
: : 1. Hohner Great Little Harp
: : 2. Hohner Big River Harp
: : 3. Hohner Pro Harp(Key of A, because Key of C is sold out in all the outlets *sigh*)
: : 4. Some other model?
: : And finally yes, I know I can order a Special 20 online, but I'd prefer to leave that as my final solution because shipping takes ages, the prices are a rip (compared to Hong Kong prices e.g. Hohner Pro Harp costs around US$30 online+shipping and US$15 in Hong Kong) and I'd just like to go out and buy one instead of rotting at home waiting =)
: marine band [hohner]probebly the best blues harp ever made
Thanks for the info, I was pondering before whether or not I would be able to learn with a wood harp since the articles from this site seem to extremely oppose it, but after reading your response I'll consider wood harps as well as the others =)
