Hohner Special 20 ClassicPublished on 08/03/11 at 14:50
The Hohner Special 20 is a harmonica/harp that comes in all of the Western keys. The one that I've used was in the standard key of C, which is probably the Special 20 that you'll see the most of out there. For a diatonic harmonica, this kind is definitely up there with the best of them. They seem to be quite popular, although I don't personally own one. I've got other harmonicas at home, but the Special 20 is one that I've used only on the other side of the glass as a recording engineer after a client brought it in to record with. While I can't speak to it's playability, the sounds of the Special 20 is superb. Of course it helped that the player was top notch, but I'd be hard...…

I've got other harmonicas at home, but the Special 20 is one that I've used only on the other side of the glass as a recording engineer after a client brought it in to record with. While I can't speak to it's playability, the sounds of the Special 20 is superb. Of course it helped that the player was top notch, but I'd be hard pressed to hear another harmonica that surpassed the sound of this one if I could try it with the same player. Since I don't own this I can't shoot it out against the Hohner harmonicas that I have, but I do think it's a bit better than the BluesBand Hohner harmonica I have. I don't believe that they sell the Special 20's in a set, but you can definitely buy one for each key and even in a 7th cross harp position. The price of the Special 20 harmonicas is a bit more expensive than your average harmonica, as it's possible to get a harmonica for next to nothing, but to get one of quality like this one, it's going to cost a little bit more, which really isn't all that much since harmonicas are pretty cheap in general. Unless you're a pretty experienced player, the Special 20 might not be necessary, but if you're looking for a quality harmonica to record with and are an experienced player, the Hohner Special 20 definitely should be considered.

Hello,

As to me, if you want a good harmonica, I recommend the 20 special and I must not be for the color ...

There, it's been a year since I started seriously harmonica and for trying many harmonica, including the famous suzuki, (lack of energy), eventually I set my heart on ... 20 special!

It is simply excellent ...

This is the model I prefer

This is my companion for a dozen years.
I prefer it to other harmonicas for his good seal (plastic box spring), its beautiful sound to his well rounded and well punchy. Remember to adapt the slat adjustment to your game and you will see it is very easy to get beautiful alterations once you however will integrate and understand the basic techniques ...

Ideal for beginners and more

It is now five years since I use the Special 20, after testing the Seydel, Suzuki and other Hohner (classic Marine Band, Blues Harp).

With my experience, this harmonica is the ideal model to begin:
- Comfortable in mouth
- Easy for learning changes (I released my first 3 "with this model)
- Value / price (I've never broken slats)

To start OK, how about me, but after?
I'll make a boat answer, but so true: "The test is to adopt".
Yes, and it is especially comfortable that I did not find any equivalent.

If we want to improve, there Bluexlab aluminum box springs that provide more detail, better glide and more comfort (but not given). …
