Nice Back-Up but hard to play
Nobody2852 16.02.2014
I got this set mainly as a backup solution for the case of one of my regular main harps (Hohner Marine Band Deluxe) breaking during gigs and to have all different keys at hand for songwriting.

For that kind of purpose and budget, the set is pretty cool and the case is of a rather nice quality too, but you shouldn't get your hopes too high at this price level, as the harps unfortunately don't stand up against the competition in form of more expensive instruments.

They're pretty hard to play, especially when it comes to precise bendings. Sometimes reeds get stuck.

So if you know what you're doing and what to expect (or just want a nice case and take the cheapo haprs on top), go ahead an get it! If you're a beginner on the harp looking for something to start with, do yourself a favor and get a single blues harp around the same price, a decent harps makes learning much easier and a lot more fun!

Unbeatable harmonica set at this price...
Marc3914 21.08.2014
I bought this set of Harley Benton harmonicas because I decided I wanted to add a harmonica section to a couple of songs we are working on.

None of us in the band are pro harmonica players by any stretch of the imagination - hence why I opted for this very budget option - but we have added a few sections into a number of songs and they sound fantastic for what we need.

We find them easy to handle and to get a half decent melody part out of and for harmonicas that work out costing something like £2 each they give quite a thick and rich sound when coming through the PA system.

Expert harmonica players would most likely find them poor imitations and probably wouldn't be looking in this price range anyway - but for a group of amateur harmonica players to add a couple of harmonica parts into songs they are easy to play and sound great.

And with the nice little case for the price, absolutely unbeatable for the price!

The best kit for beginners
Redbeard_Ted 09.08.2017
I bought this kit to learn how to play blues harp and I believe it was a great purchase - great value for the money and the best option out there for beginners to learn.

The best thing is definitely that you get all 12 halftones, so you can play along any song. That's a great way to practice.

The sound is good, given the price (for the same price you'd get two harps of another brand, here you get twelve), but if you'll start using it often you'll probably need to purchase better ones.

The response is good, it's easy to learn to bend the notes, cause they are quite thin.

The finish is not the best, has a bit of sharp edges - because of that my mustache always gets stuck between the plastic and the metal.

After a while, I noticed that some of the notes on several harmonicas are not playable. When you blow/ draw on these, you cannot get any sound. Either they were faulty when I received them or they got damaged over time, although I did not use them at all. So the latter option is rather improbable.
