In this price range, this harmonica is the best. Of course harmonics for conserts are better. ACE48's disadvantages are increased weight, but poorly defined gain in the timbre of sound. A little hindered harmonic response in quiet play. But overall I am happy with the purchase. HOHNER's aromatic harmonics have a sound that other companies don't have. I appreciate it. HOHNER specialists are working to improve product quality. I can judge it. Two years ago, I bought the first ACE48. Everything told me about the flaws! Even flooded the valve and had problems with the tongues! But here is a new harmonica with me. The difference is huge! Thank. But the monetary loss for me is obvious!
