Hohner Special 20


One of the best starter harmonicas, it’s also popular with advanced players.



The Hohner Special 20 harmonica has a strong and mellow sound. The Special 20 was the first diatonic harmonica in the world with reed plates recessed into the comb, creating a projecting plastic mouthpiece, which makes it more comfortable to play.  Its distinctive sound is perfect for everything from Blues, Folk and Country to Rock and Pop. The Special 20 offers everything a professional harmonica player needs.  It’s also the ideal beginner’s instrument thanks to its smooth playability and
comparatively affordable price.

Popular with both blues and country players, the Hohner Special 20 is a classic design harmonica. The cover plates are stainless steel, on a black plastic comb with recessed, screwed on reed plates for extra air-tightness. The blues tunings are available in standard keys.

All harmonicas come in with a tough, hinged plastic case.

Replacement reed plates are available.
