I guess in the end, the only way to have a truly informed opinion is to try out different harps and see with your own ears and mouth. Personally I use Golden Melodies, but one day Mr. Music (Allston, MA) was out of Golden M's, so I got a Special 20 instead. It's different, but the difference is subtle. Someone made a very good point earlier in this thread that in the context of a band situation, i.e. other instruments playing, going through a mike and amp, even other harmonica players are going to have a hard time telling which type of Hohner harmonica you are playing.....maybe Lee Oskar's are more distinctive, bit I'm too frugal to spend the extra money..
..I really like what bear did with the experimenting on harmonicas...
..have fun and keep blowing..Kevin
