Cheaper than Hohner, but definitely of comparable quality. In fact, to my ear the higher notes are distinctly more musical than the Hohner Blues harp (but this may be because my Hohners are getting on in years!). I bought two different keys, and both are very expressive and respond beautifully to variations in breath and force. It comes with a decent case, and even a little cleaning cloth. The only possible negative is the matte black finish, which is nice on the lips, but not so much on Old School eyes (also makes me wonder if I'm getting a dose of Teflon every time I play....).
