Hello Everyone,
New to the site and to the harmonica. When I was little, my grandpa would play this old harmonica all the time. I loved the sound of it. Now that he has passed, I inherited his old Echo. It’s in the key of G and was made in Germany. I have no idea how old it actually is, but considering he was in the 82nd Airborn during WW2, I can take a stab at the age. As far as I can tell it still sounds as good as it did when I was a kid. So I have it now, and it is an instrument I have not yet learned and I figured I might as well start. Although, I may spend the money on a new one. Before I decide, I need more education about the various types of harmonicas.
