So last night was the official test of the Hohner Rocket. This harmonica is incredible! It is effortless to play, the tuning and intonation are freak'n amazing and it is Really Loud, so loud in fact that I had to adjust my volume in between my other harmonicas. I've always played Blues Harps and they are great instruments. I tried Lee Oskar and was not impressed with their durability. The Special 20s are very impressive, but after trying the Rocket I really don't think that you could do better as a professional harp player unless you started using hand built harps. Very Impressed!!!!

I'm in Love!  Bought two from the ever awesome Rockin Ron Hobdy and put them to the test all weekend.  These are SP20's handsome and talented big brother!  The Rocket is quickly going to replace just about every harp in my harp belt.  Way to go Hohner - just when I was mad at you guys for not producing the Thunderbird in low f#, I cant stay mad cuz these Rocket bad boys are the sheet! Any of the luminaries on this list have design influence on this harp?  If so, Congrats!  Nicely done.  Comfortable, bright, tough, nimble especially on the high end and super LOUD!  Feels like I upgraded from my old '67 Chevy Impala to a '84 Cadillac Seville!
Thank You Hohner!
