    Bushman Frost Harps are Great

    I've played for many years, and have not found a blues harp that sounds as good, bends as well (especially on quarter and half bends), and stays in tune as well as these do. I really appreciate that they encourage you to put a bit of lung power into your playing. I'm not sure if the harps make me better or if I just think so. Either way, I think I've entered a new love affair with my instrument. Hurrah for Bushman!

    PS. I have A, C, D, F, and G so far. I expect to buy more.

    Delta Frost Bushman

    I am just starting to learn to play the Harmonica. I find the Bushman Delta Frost to be easier sliding from note to note because of the stainless steel cover plates. Thank you Sweetwater for guiding me to them.

    Sold on the Bushman

    The Bushman Delta Frost endured a 3 day, 4 hour per day outdoor venue recently. Never lost a reed or hint of one damaged. I'll be buying this brand from here on out.

    Bushman Delta Frost Harps ROCK!

    The Bushman Delta Frost Harps are the BEST out of the box Harps I've ever played in my 40+ years of playing. They are loud and true and long lasting....I'm HOOKED!

    Bushman Delta Frost

    Sweetwater delivered quickly as promised. The Delta Frost is a very fine instrument, rounded corners, larger holes, and smooth to the mouth. I own Seydels, Suzuki, and a Hohner Rocket, and I find this Delta Frost right up there with them. Mine is "A" tuned perfectly right out of the box. Nice case too.

    They're Great.

    The Bushman Delta Frost really are better - in lots of little ways - but the two that really count are - #1 last longer and #2 - sound better. Now I've never bought a fancy harmonica - but for "regular" harmonicas - you got your Hohner Special 20s, your Lee Oskars, and your Delta Frosts. I will guarantee you - you buy one of each - in the same key - and set em all on your coffee table - gradually - over time - you will reach more and more - for th at Delta Frost FIRST. Why?? BECAUSE - it really DOES sound better. It just does.

    Bushman Quality

    Seems well set up (at least to my ear). Not sure if this is one of John Hall's former off shore contract harmonicas or one of his new U.S. products. Either way, it is as expected, a good Bushman harp. I recommend Bushman.

    Great everyday harp

    The Bushman Delta Frost was recommended by a friend whose opinion I respect, and he was right. I mainly play 1st and 2nd position, and this is easy on the tongue with great tone and bend ability.
    I plan to replace all my everyday harps with Bushman. Considering its quality and ease of reed plate replacement, I think this harmonica is an outstanding value.

    Delta Frost v Special 20

    Maybe it will improve with time and use, but my Hohner Special 20 is far more playable out of the box.

    Bushman or Bush League?

    Was swayed by a review that compared Bushman favorably with Hohner Special 20 and Lee Oskar. With the Bushmans it's harder to bend notes and/or alter the tone. Would be fine for a folkie,but not a great blues harp.

    Perhaps I receuved a faulty one, but after reading some good reviews on the Bushman, I decided to try it as an alternative to my Special 20's , as I have had a few Special 20s break reeds of late. I hate to say this, but the Bushman did not compare favorably to the Hohner. I found the Bushman to not be very tight, and it leaks a lot of air. Just harder to play .

    Not Hohner

    I wanted to be impressed by this harmonica - but it fell well short of the expectations set by reading the other reviews here. I owned Hohner Special 20's , but after my 2nd time breaking a reed on the Special 20, I decided to try another brand in the same price range. This harmonica is NOT Hohner. Nowhere near as tight as the Hohner, so despite what the video claims - it take way more air to achieve the same volume of sound as the Special 20. I hate to say it, but I didn't think this was all that much better than the cheapo Fender harmonica I got for $10. Lots of leakage. I would not recommend. Sorry
