I’m pretty new to the harmonica, although have some competence on a couple of other instruments (bodhrán + rhythm bones, also gittar + mandolin), and I live up in the city of Oulu, Finland. I picked up harmonica recently, I’m not totally sure why.
The first harp I got was a Hohner MS Blues harp. It’s OK, but I found that the sound was quite piercing and I didn’t get that far with it. I recently got another harp in a different key, but this time got a Hohner MS pro harp.
Now, it sounds to me that the Pro has a slightly richer tone than the Blues harp, and I like the sound a lot more, and am consequently thinking of playing a bit more seriously - so I thought time to join a forum and start looking for advice.
As well as saying “Hei” from nothern scandinavia, I’m also wondering if anyone can say if there is a difference between the two harps more generally, or is it just the two harps that I have? Most places on the internet seem to say that the two harps are the same. I’m wondering if the material (plastic vs wood) makes any difference at all?
