Hohner's most popular professional-level diatonic harmonica for many years. Well known and respected for its great tone and bendability for blues. Played by millions of harmonica players around the world. Used and recommended by many famous professional harp players including Charlie McCoy ("undoubtably the most recorded harmonica player in history" - Field, K., 2000, Harmonicas Harps and Heavy Breathers, Cooper Square Press). Special 20 harmonicas are exceptionally warm sounding, airtight, and have bolt-on covers and replaceable brass reed plates.

"Durable ABS plastic comb with recessed reed plates for playing comfort. The stable, airtight construction and full sound make the Special 20 one of the most popular diatonic models.

Awesome response, superior bendability and the sweetest tone ever. This harp is the first choice for those learning to play. Its special airtight design makes it the most recommended go-to harp for harmonica players of any style, including blues, country, folk or rock. The plastic comb doesn’t absorb moisture making it longer lasting. Harp of choice of harmonica virtuoso John Popper (of Blues Traveler) and played by Bob Dylan on his 2007/08 tour. Chances are your favorite player has several of these harps in his case. 12 major keys plus lower and higher octave tunings. Also available in a Special Country tuning with a major 7th in cross harp position."
