I love this Harmonica! Somehow I avoided this model for years and just now bought my first one! Because I wrongly ASSUMED that a harp at this price, 35 bucks, couldn't possibly be any good? I was totally wrong! For the price I can not recommend another harp more! I like these much more than the Hohner Special 20's. Oddly the Hohner Rocket is on a par with the Suzuki Bluesmsater! In my opinion, these Harmonicas have much better nuts and bolts and covers and reeds than the Special 20's. NOTE: The pictures I've seen of The Bluesmaster all make the harp look like the lip has a sharp grove in it, it doesn't, it's really a bad shadow from the original photo Suzuki used! It makes it look like a sharp edge on the front, it's not sharp at all, it's very well rounded and smooth as butter. I plan to buy at least one set of these great little harps Thx JGB :)
I feel the same way as the previous reviewer. Was looking for the perfect "A" to play my melodies. Went thru all my bag of harps. Could not find any I liked better than that little Suzuki Bluesmaster I Purchased from Rockin Rons. Wish it had more volume. But it came in first ahead of some very good models of harmonicas that I have. Go figure. Aug 2016
I purchased the Bluesmaster after doing some serious research. I bought my first harmonicas 45 years ago, Hohner Marine Bands and Special 20's. Twenty years later, I started playing Lee Oscars. Now I'm playing Suzuki's, BluesMasters and HarpMasters. Compared to Hohner and Oskars I like the full chordal sound and the musicality of the single notes. Easy to bend, easier for me than the H & O's. Responsive and solid. The HarpMasters are brighter, but not overly airy, where the BluesMasters have a warmer, bluer tone. I'm very very impressed, so much so, I've put the H & O's on the shelf. Buy one, try one.
