I have been playing for almost 50 years, from Honer, to Seydel, to Lee Oskar, tinkered with reed tuning and setups, tried cheap and spendy, although no custom shop builds. I will be buying more of these to replace ALL of my top brand harps. Sounded and played better out of the box than ANY of them did without tinkering, which my old eyes don't allow anymore. I will be considering a custom Harmo build, for the first custom harp I have ever considered.
The best diatonic in this price range
I own several Hohners (Marine Band, Crossover, Rocket, Special 20) and Seydel Session Steel. This harmonica is louder and easier to play than all of them. I simply love it ! Will order more keys very soon.
MY GO TO PLACE
I really like discovering Polar harmonicas. I needed a Dminor for a church/synagogue music effect and I got it big time and more. With that line I now have four Polars and a bag from Harmo, to take better care of them, rather than having to put them in cases all the time. Talk about delivery time? Just a few days to get to the Virgin Islands! 5
