Hohner designed this harp to handle the intensity of blues style playing, with a sound that also matches what's expected of the genre.

It has a wood comb that helps shape its classic tone, which should be at home with blues, rock and similar styles.

What makes this blues harp stand out is its "modular system" design, which lets you swap out its parts to change the tone, including its comb, reed plates, and cover.
