Few weeks ago when I purchased JP’s course, I went out to buy a cheap harmonica. There was only one model in key of C, and 10 holes, so I got that. It looks exactly like the Hohner Special 20.
But, yesterday I got a Hohner Special 20 through eBay as I figured I’d like something that was recommended, and I had no idea if the no-name harmonica I got first, was any good or bad.
So far my questions are:
They sound different. I can’t really say which sound I like most, the no-name or the Special 20. Maybe I just need to get used to the Special 20. But why is that, a matter of quality?
The Special 20 is louder as volume. I blow the same amount of air, but the 20 is louder than the no-name. That’s how it’s supposed to be, right?
Finally, any tips on how to “play silently” as to not annoy the neighbours in my building?
