- quote: ( from bear ) Now since you like the Marine Bands I would suggest you getting a Special 20 (even if you have to wait for the dealer to order it), you see a Special 20 is a Marine Band but with a plastic comb. The plastic comb will not swell up on you. And trust me, the Special 20 feels a whole lot better in your mouth then a Marine Band or Blues Harp. I have played all of the above harps. I used to play mostly Blues Harps (and the little Vest Pockets) but now prefer the Special 20 due to them having the plastic combs.
I agree with Bear, I've played a Lee Oskar, a Marine Band and a Special 20. I was a bit put off by the wooden comb on the marine band, but without that "problem" on the Special 20, I loved it.
I think I'm starting to prefer the Special 20 to my Lee Oskar now actually!
