Hohner Blues Harp - E Until now, harmonicas just weren't made for blues. For one thing, they didn't last. After two or three blues sessions it was tough even for a musician like Mel to get a good sound. The punishment of blues wailing often caused the reeds to lose pitch and flat out. Now you've got the blues harp. With a new kind of reed system. And you can get a great blues sound with a minimum of effort. Mel said the Blues Harp was the best harmonica he'd ever played. See if you don't agree.
