An underrated harmonica

The Hohner Golden Melody has become my harmonica of choice. It is especially suited for single-note playing which is great for rock, blues and folk tunes. I used Lee Oskars for years, but they do not compare. When you blow or draw into a GM, it's almost effortless. This helps you hit notes with very little air pressure. For fast players, this is essential. The tone is amazing and bending is a breeze. I've found nothing I don't like about this harp. If you're more of a single note player, I highly recommend the Golden Melody. Chords sound wonderful too. Please note, I am not primarily a blues player. For blues, the Lee Oskar and the Hohner Special 20s can do the job quite nicely. But even then, I still prefer my GM.
