: I started about two months ago and experimented with
: different harps. I started on a johnson blues king
: which i got rip off at my local music store, $20.00,
: (on sale at musicalfriends for 99 cents). I than bought
: 2 lee oskars, C & G, than bought the remaining st. keys
: with hohner special 20's. I just received the flats in
: the Hohner golder Melody. Seems like a nice harp, but
: other than the shape is there any difference between them
: and the special 20's ?. They cost about 7.00 dollars
: more.

The Golden Melody is tuned with "equal temperment", which means the notes are equally divided, like on a piano. Most other harps are tuned with "just intonation" which makes the chords sound a little nicer... A very small difference. Golden Melody is great for single note melody and Special 20 better for chords. But both sound great for the blues... After hearing Carlos Del Junco, I went to get at Golden Melody, and I really like it. Special 20 is probably my 2nd favorite.
