Those that say that it's impossible to choke (bend notes) these harmonicas are amateurs. Certainly these harmonicas can be choked with very little effort. These are cheap, bottom of the line harmonicas..but functional. If you are a beginner and don't want to pay $50 for a harmonica, give these a try. Don't listen to the beginners who will never be experts on the harmonica. I rate them at about a three. I have played Bluesbands for many, many years. They are not my first choice for a good harmonica but certainly can be played in most positions with little effort.
