    Hello everybody,
    I have been practicing on a cheep Harmonica for the last couple of months and i am wanting to buy a new harmonica worth a little bit more. Any suggestions for a C harmonica that will be good for country style songs. Budget around 60 euro.

    kind regards,

    Maurice

    Hi Maurice,

    There are quite a few good harmonicas for that price, but to keep things simple I suggest a Hohner Special 20. That’s what I use! πŸ™‚

    There are loads of great harps for 60 euros. Mitchs suggestion is great, you won’t go wrong with a special 20.
    Really any 10 hole diatonic of over 30 or 40 euros is going to be good enough.
    After a while you will undoubtedly get the urge to try others… Its an addiction!

    Oh yes Ian it really is an addiction πŸ˜‰
    Feeling how each of them play and sound, wood comb, plastic comb, bamboo comb, etc ….. steel reeds, brass reeds, open back coverplates and so on ☺️

    However at first it all comes back to how we the player know how to play the instrument, so we have to get the technical ability behind it.

    I “accidentally” acquired a couple of harmonicas to play with. The one I do most of my practicing on is a special 20. I find it fairly solid. I’m also finding it the easiest (personally) to try and learn bending on.
