Hohner John Lennon Signature Series Harmonica
Filed under: Hohner

Hohner has created a special harmonica tribute to the infamous John Lennon. It is the beautiful ‘John Lennon’ Signature Series Harmonica and is hand-made in Germany. As a child John Lennon played the harmonica in liverpool and was inspired by by the blues music he heard from America in the 60’s. As a result of that influence he became one of the most beloved composers and musicians of our time.

This gorgeous blues harp is perfect for any serious harmonica player, collector or even brand new player. (Click Link Below!)

Which Harmonica is Better for Blues, a Hohner Special 20 or a Hohner Blues Harp?
Filed under: Blues Harp Harmonica andHohner

Hey, I am about to buy a harmonica to mostly play blues stuff. After a few hours of research, it seems the best two harmonicas would be a Hohner Special 20 or a Hohner Blues Harp. Unfortunately, Lee Oskars are not available at my local store, and I don’t want to buy over the internet. Thanks




They are both good. I have both types as well as some Oskars. The only down side to the Blues Harp is the comb is wood which is susceptible to swelling although I believe the newer ones use a better wood in that regards. The only personal negative experience with wood comb harmonicas is last summer I played wood comb harps for several hours and I got a small cut on my lip. As far as buying harmonicas on line, I have had good luck with Musicians Friend, Music123 and Coast to Coast. All very good. I would stay from Harp Depot though. I and several others had bad experiences with them. As far as buying locally, I like Guitar Center Stores.
