Hohner Special 20 A-Major
The Worlds Most Copied Harmonica Design
A unique, beautifully mellow sound, based on a revolutionary concept: the Special 20
was the first diatonic harmonica in the world with reed plates recessed into the comb,
creating a projecting plastic mouthpiece.
This makes it more comfortable to play, and the most copied harmonica design worldwide.
Its distinctive sound is perfect for everything from Folk and Country to Rock and Pop.
The Special 20 offers everything a professional harpist needs, but its also the ideal
beginners instrument thanks to its smooth playability and comparatively affordable price.
If youre not just looking for a companion for the first few steps, but one to take
you all the way, the Special 20 is your best possible bet.
