|nice harp right out of the box|
|David C. on 03/27/2020|
I am an intermediate skill player, I have a few other brands in my case: Sedel 1847, Suzuki overdrive, Hohner special 20's , Lee Oskar to name most of them. I was impressed with the play readiness of the Polar right out of the box, no rattles, smooth transitions with low air input/output, good volume, and comfortable on the mouth. I have needed to modify all my other harps to get them to play this easily, although the Suzuki was next best. I'm not trained yet on using the minor tuning, but it does have a much different mood than a major diatonic. Very good harp, would recommend & buy again.
|Paul S. on 12/26/2019||I've just started playing this harmonica. It is replacing a Lee Oskar in the same key but so far it provides clean, clear notes in every position. Very happy with this harp and joins my Polar Nat minor A in my harmonica case.|
