Which harmonica and massive discount on three fab harp courses.
One of the most common questions we get asked is “Which harmonica should I buy?”
There are so many different brands and models available that it can be quite confusing.
As with all musical instruments you do get what you pay for so our advice would be that if you can afford it, buy a mid range instrument.
Something in the price range £20 -£40 should do the job nicely.
For your first diatonic harmonica you should choose a key of C as much of the teaching material available is done for this key.
Did you know there also is a thing called fine tuning, or ‘intonation’?
Within the Sonnyboys range there are three subtly different tunings - or intonations.
Sonnyboys’ Mojo = perfect for chordal blues.
Sonnyboys’ Special = perfect for melodies.
Sonnyboys’ Classic = this can do everything.
Please see the explanation chart below.
