Summary: Naming a harmonica after Bob Dylan is like naming a basketball after Stephen Hawking. Then again, there's a certain symbolic significance to trying to elevate this mediocre, overpriced product by naming it thus.
Summary: This Harmonica is basically a Marine Band as far as I can tell. Which, is a very nice Harmonica and good value. Lots of pros play them and love them. This is a little more special, has a cool collector appeal to it, and plays, feels, and looks very nice. I paid $59 with free shipping on Amazon and it was a great deal. For $109, well that's what you pay for a limited addition which is a bit pricey but worth it if you like something different and unique.
Summary: A wonderful professional Hohner harmonica, made in Germany with fine craftsmanship and very rich bright sound in key of C. My musician husband was delighted to receive this as a gift, and began playing it immediately. Well made, attractively packaged, and a limited edition series make this a special gift! Recommended!!
Summary: I have just ordered a product without putting in any payment details and after cancelling the order it has still gone throug. I cant seem to find any email number that I can write to other than this one to say that I do not want the produce which is the Hohner Bob Dylan signature Series Harmonica. It is telling me that it is already in the process of being sent which was only 30minutes ago since I was on the site.
Summary: Folks, do not waste money on this piece of garbage. Save the money and get a Special 20. I've had the Dylan harmonica for two weeks and it is just terrible. The sound is weak, and I find I have to work hard to produce the kind of sound that is easily produced on less expensive harps. I did an A/B test with my Special 20, and the 20 has a far superior sound.
Bob Dylan Harmonica - my harmonica buying goes out with a bang

Summary: Most of the other reviews I have read on this item have been negative. Now let me say something positive. I love my Bob Dylan harmonica. I bought it today at Sam Ash, and have vowed to never purchase another harp again. In other words, I now have twenty-seven harps, and that's my limit. My arsenal is complete, and I desire to purchase no more harps. As far as the harp and its packaging, it couldn't be any better. I love how it looks and sounds.
Summary: The Bob Dylan signature Harmnica is way over priced,quality of sound is compairable to a $15.00 instrument. Horner special 20 is 3 times for the money.Bob Dylan should be more careful were he puts his name.
Summary: We bought this item for our son who is in the Navy, likes to play music, has little storage space and likes Bob Dylan. It was a big hit with him, and he said he can't wait to come home and play us some songs.
Summary: An overpriced Hohner, yes, but I have no problems with that: I like Dylan and bought it because I wanted it. The outrageous cost of international shipping by the seller (not Amazon), on the other hand, is criminal. I should have checked the local music shops where they had the same item for less than what I paid for the item plus shipping.
