Personally, I don't think it makes one bit of difference. To back that up, I've been through a couple of hundred harmonicas over the years. Wood comb harmonicas are crappy to play. I play stock LO's and Special 20's (which I buy through this site). I used to have mods done, but I think that's a waste of time and money also.
: thanks for the response. that material was very interesting, especially the sound samples, which are incredibly similar, and the explanation of how sound production is different for a harp vs. a guitar...i would also like to know your personal opinion on this subject, if you would like to share it...thanks again...eddie
: : : I have been playing blues harp for about 7 months, but I have also been singing and playing blues and R&B for almost 30 years. So far I favor wooden comb harps. The warm and resonant sound they make just doesn't seem to be there in plastic body harps. One other thought...If plastic is such a good material for musical instruments, why don't they make things like violins and acoustic guitars out of plastic? No offense meant to anyone out there...just expressing my opinion...Please respond & let me know what you think.
