: Has anyone else noticed that Hohner harps are very poorly made and go out of tune real quick?
Hohner marine bands have the well-known problems of comb leakage, swelling, etc. Other issues with the H. special 20. The golden melody is a nice harp, particularly for OBs and ODs.
Lee O's are bigger, prob. more ungainly, but the reeds are more durable in general, the out-of-box quality more consistent, and the reed plates are replaceable. Personally, I prefer them, but that's me. Jeremy, the harmonica video man!
