Great quality, but slightly more complicated to use than I expected.

I use this harmonica in a hobby capacity and would certainly recommend it in that respect. I would go as far as to say even a professional player would enjoy it. Beautiful sound and very robustly made. It feels good to hold. A major step up from my chrometta. Chrometta is a disappointment in comparison in my view. Very pleased I bought it. Definitely would have another one.
