I was very excited to get this harmonica in the mail, I've had a couple of different Hohner Chromonicas and this one is by far my favorite. It's easy to clean, the slide action is very quiet and it sounds amazing. The notes are easy to bend and the mouthpiece is very comfortable. I'm glad that Sam Ash had one in stock because it was hard to find. Would absolutely recommend if you are in the market for a new harmonica! The Team in Raleigh made the ordering process very easy and hassle free. Thank you Sam Ash!
