I consider myself a lifelong beginner of the harmonica because I practice/play in the privacy of my home. It is my personal preference to have and enjoy my wonderful uplifting time "just mess'in round" with my harmonica. I was truly impressed with your website, ease of navigating and the ordering process is reassuring my purchase is secure and protected. I purchased the new harmonica to compliment the Christmas gift I gave my 16 year daughter. Her gift is a Chinese "Erhu" stringed instrument. We'll see how our "just mess'in round" works out.
