Expensive--But More Cost Effective in the Long Run
23 December 2011
Summary: I've owned my Suzuki Promaster in the key of C for about ten months now. Most of my experience has been with Hohners and Lee Oskars, and I had been curious about the more expensive Suzuki, so I decided to give one a try. I think the Suzuki is well worth the money, and, probably, ultimately more cost effective. I play a lot of blues, you see, and I'm hard on my instruments with all my bending and overblows.
Summary: Have owned and played many good harmonicas, playing old folk material on a C and a G harp. The Suzuki Promaster is noticably clearer, brighter than any of the Honers. I have two pairs that I carry about in leather holsters. Love these Promasters and Amazon's great service.
Summary: The Suzuki Promaster is now my favorite harmonica. I am no professional, but not a beginner either. I am used to playing Hohners, and this harp blew me away with its responsiveness. The tone is full and a good volume, but can be played softly as well. Because I am not excellent at the harp, I still have issues with my technique, which the Suzuki is more sensitive to then the Hohners.
Summary: Suzuki makes great harmonicas. They are well finished, smooth, lip, beard and mustache friendly. The reeds are excellent. But, after playing the aluminum comb, I do not particularly like them. They are heavy and have a harsh sound. I still prefer plastic or wood combs. I still like plastic combs the best. They are air tight and light and have a great sound. Wood combs can still warp and some have a strange taste from the sealers used on them.
Summary: recieved my order within bout 4 days of ordering. packaging was well done. only thing was the shinny finish was worn around the numbers when i opened the package. :( not a big deal though. will be buying from them next time!
