Golden Melody Model 542

I started playing Harmonica in 1968 and used the Hohner Marine Band 10 hole 20 reed model until I found the Golden Melody in 1975. I bought one and was completely convinced that I had finally found a Professional level Diatonic Harmonica. I’ve been playing them for 42 years. The quality control on them has been the most consistent I’ve ever found in any harmonica I’ve ever played. The response to my playing is instant, louder and the tone fuller than other Harmonicas I’ve tried.

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.
