Product Information

Attractive 1950s look, with full length covers, closed at the sides. The Golden Melody is the only Hohner diatonic harp featuring equal tempered tuning which makes it especially suitable for melody playing. Equal Tuning.

The 542/20 Golden Melody Hohner is an especially airtight harmonica with a strong, full-bodied sound. The curved ends provide extra holding comfort, and it's ideal for overblowing. Get the one virtuoso Howard Levy prefers. Curved cover plates extend the entire length of the harmonica, providing increased resonant capacity. Reeds are set close to the open-framed mouthpiece and respond to the most subtle of commands, making the Golden Melody perfect for overblowing as well as bending. Case included.

Reeds: 20
Reedplates: Brass; 0.9 mm
Comb: Plastic; red
Length in cm: approx. 10.0

Please read this note from Bill Bucco Reed Service Manager at Hohner: 

  • Hohner Progressive Cover Plates: Ron, There is no difference between a Special 20 or Golden Melody stamped Progressive and a Special 20 or Golden Melody not stamped Progressive. The Progressive line is simply a re-categorization to make the differences in features of our 10-hole diatonic harmonicas more apparent. Categories are: Marine Band = Classic, Deluxe, Crossover, Thunderbird Progressive = Special 20, Golden Melody, Rocket MS = Blues Harp, Big River Harp, Blue Midnight Enthusiast = BluesBand, Old Standby, Blues Bender, American Ace, Pocket Pal, Hot Metal So a Special 20 stamped Progressive is no different than any other Special 20. Therefore we will continue to sell the old cover plates in the new or older marked boxes until they run out without changing our distribution. I do not know how long that will take. My opinion is it is safe to say we will run out by the end of the year on popular keys. Bill Bucco Reed Instrument Service Manager | HOHNER, Inc.

Golden Melody

I am surprised, Hohner's Golden Melody, has not been reviewed...It is the most airtight of all my Hohner's. The Golden Melody, is the most comfortable to hold, with it's banana shape instead of the boxcar design. It is easy to bend and produces a great mellow sound, with plenty of loudness, if that's what you want. I have a C, G and A. In my top three harmonica's. I definitely recommend, the Golden Melody. I wish Hohner, would make one with a wooden or bamboo comb.
