Yeah, is just referencing the responsiveness of the reeds and overall construction.
That they play well basically, they play with little breath force, sound good…. they respond well.
An unresponsive harmonica would be something in the cheapo category like the ‘hot metal’. Stiff and gappy reeds and leaky comb.
To some extent this is just marketing spiel , but the special 20 is definitely responsive.
I guess the more harps you try the more it will make sense as a term.
