Hohner Discovery

John9071, 20.03.2014
This sounds good in the low registers, particularly. It feels robust and the slide works well. Some might prefer the mouthpiece on other models. You have to blow gently on the treble reeds. Quite pleased with the purchase which arrived very promptly.

Cheap educational instrument

Ulrich151, 24.09.2012
The Hohner Discovery 48 is the standard version of the anniversary model that Hohner has issued on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the chromatic harmonica by Hohner. The luxury model is the Hohner "C". I emphasize: this is the anniversary of the Hohner product "chromatic harmonica". There is the opinion that other manufacturers were earlier with such an instrument on the market.

Now to the instrument itself: anyone who takes the instrument from the case into the hand is amazed by the lightness. This observation is important in that it has long been found that a sound body with a denser mass and a higher weight produces a better sound . Suzuki has installed ballast in the sound bodies of his new developments, Seydel has an aluminum sound body of some density and for aluminum considerable weight. The sound results of the competition are correspondingly good. The Discovery 48 sounds a bit thin even with my body resonance. I will never play it at a concert. But this does not have to be a disadvantage, for example, when thinking of a cheap school instrument that can be amplified in the concert.

The mouthpiece proves that this is the case. The square openings are pleasantly large. Students who want to switch from the beginner's instrument "Melody Star" to a chromatic instrument will enjoy it. Because the game on only one channel is made easy for them. This will make one of the big hurdles in the beginner's lesson much smaller. For the advanced is added. On no other instrument are tonal repetitions with the tongue so easy and especially in the upper octave without sound impairments feasible as on this.

The instrument is easy to disassemble and maintain. The covers are ergonomically formed. The slider runs lightly and quietly.

I was surprised at the mood. There was not a single disgruntled tone, not even one, with which the gap had not been tuned. It played very well. The plates sit tightly on the pulpit body; As well as the mouthpiece. This instrument can be placed in the hands of a child or a teenager or a senior. It is a pleasure. Of course Hohner has equipped this instrument with the latest generation of valves. Most valve problems are thus solved.

Still to the case: Finally, one that lets air through, so that the harmonica may also dry in the case. This step was long overdue. Now, after playing, you do not have to put the instruments on the bookshelf at least one day to dry them out. This case can also be attached to the belt with a loop, so that as a young man, his "girlfriend" always has with him and she does not always have to look for her as an old man like the glasses.

In summary, I can recommend this tool to anyone who needs a solid and well thought-out tool for learning. If you are looking for a concert instrument, you should choose a different chromatic harmonica, especially if it plays without a microphone.

I have a cello and a piano for my children. The price of the Discovery 48 is, in comparison, very, very cheap.
