Just learning but

Great sound. Finding it fun and easier to play than a prior cheap harp. Had to adjust a few reeds but that is my fussy tastes.
Music background: Piano and keyboards mostly with some guitar. Just for fun.

Lots of fun!

I am still a beginner when it comes to harmonica and this was the first real one I got (I started learning on an old Pocket Pal I found in my basement but decided I needed something a little higher in quality). When I first gave it a try I was amazed at the richness of the sound - it sounds just like a harmonica should! While I am still not quite "on the level" when it comes to reliable bending, when I do get a good bend going on this it sounds really good. It took some time to break in the reeds on the ends but they are sounding pretty good now. The only downside I can really think of is that you can't really clean these out since the rivets are permanent and the wooden comb prevents you from getting it wet, but I'm not too worried about that at this point. I will probably try out some other models and brands of harmonicas (the multiple keys provide a great excuse to try a bunch out without feeling like I am making redundant purchases!) but I love the way this one sounds. If it's good enough for Neil Young it's good enough for me!
