Got this on sale so I could test it. This tuning style is very cool. This is a Natural minor tuned version and sounds somber and sad. Think of Russian and Eastern Europe. As for the construction. It's a German made Hohner. Plays in tune and projects easily. Bends very nicely and feels good in the hand. The back is a little sharp as it's bent and not rounded like a Special 20. The reed plate isn't recessed and is nailed to the wood comb so repairing might be difficult. If the Special 20 could be order in this type of tuning i would get a couple in different keys. For now it's fun to play just for the sound of the chords.
Fabulous harmonica! Wish I had known about the Minor Key harmonicas a long time ago. I would've bought them all. You can play anything on them.
Excellent sound quality!!
