Additional Information

The Hohner 560 Special 20 in country tuning (also known as major 7th tuning in cross harp position) has the 5-draw reed tuned 1/2 a step higher (to F# on a C harp) than normal, allowing you to play a complete major diatonic scale in cross harp. As expert harp player Steve Baker describes in his book, The Harp Handbook, "What all this means in practice is that you can play major melodies whilst retaining the bluesy bending capabilities of the 2nd position. This is great for jazzy numbers or ragtime, as well as many other styles...." Musicians that favor this harmonica include country music legends such as Charlie McCoy and renowned jazz musicians such as Lil' Ronnie Owens of the Grand Dukes.

Hohner Special 20 what to say about this incredible instrument?

It is Cheap, super high quality, and has a cool design.

This harmonica has brass reeds that are super easy to bend, have a rich and potent sound.
Plastic comb that will never absorb the moisture as wood combs do, and is completely airtight.

It is really expressive and the bending notes sound beautiful on it

About this specific one, is on G Major (one of the lowest tunings out there for harmonica)
And it has Country tuning that is basically the 5 draw reed tuned half step down, to make a major 7 chord.
That for country in Second position is essential since a flatted 7th will clash in major scales some times.

Good news! You won't lose the flatted 7th note, you can actually bend the 5 draw a half step and you recover that note, with a bluesy tone.

My recommendation if you are mainly 1st Position player or is still learning the world of the Cross... Read more
excellent product and good support by customer care staff including supplier. REGARDS.
Cool melody playing harp. Great for first position playing. Smooth on the lips & tongue, easy on the lungs, and makes a rich tone. Nice harp!
