|The best blues Harp on the Market|
|Dick P. on 04/26/2016||Probably the best Hohner blues harmonica at the moment. Really nice sound for acoustic blues duo. Great service too !|
|Smooth and easy to play|
|Henry J. on 11/15/2004||Crossovers have been my go-to harp for the last few years. I've tried many other harmonicas, and always come back to the Crossover for tone, airtightness, out-of-the-box tuning and easy bendability. Needs extra tweaking for overblows, as most any harp would|
|Maybe the best Hohner harp|
|Alexis B. on 09/15/2007||So they gathered a bunch of players and customizers and came up with an enhanced version of the classic Hohner Marine Band. The Crossover is louder and has a smoother comb (bam boo) you can get some overblows out of the box but can;t say it's as good as a manually setup harp. Definitely one of the best out of the box harmonica on the market and Thank you Harmonicaland for selling it so low !|
