If you want to get the sound of a Hammond organ in the convenience of an instrument you can carry around in your pocket, the HA20 mouth organ made by Suzuki will give you the deep, rounded tone you’re after. It also has a beautiful black casing and a unique construction that sets it apart from other options on the market.

The tone of the HA20 is uniquely rich and mellow, but without losing its clarity. It’s also incredibly easy-blowing. A lot of other inexpensive harmonicas require you to use a different amount of air pressure for the low notes than the high, but with the HA20 you can use a consistent air pressure regardless of the frequency. This lets you use changes in the air pressure to alter the dynamics instead. It can play quietly when you want it to, without losing the tone quality. The aluminum comb lets it get louder than a lot of other harmonicas, too.

You’ll get great control and precision with the HA20. The notes you blow through any given hole are clear and locked into the pitch. It gives you equal definition whether you’re playing chords or single-note melodies and riffs. Note bends are easily accomplished and sound fantastic. Combined with the warmth of the tone, the quality of the bends makes this an awesome harmonica for blues players.

The solid build on this harp is also worth pointing out. The outer casing is heavy-duty and will stand up to lots of play and abuse. The reed plates and comb are also well-made, and the entire unit is well-constructed to prevent air leakage. The small details are on point, too. There are finger grooves on the cover plate to make it easier to hold, and the embedded lip guidelines in the comb are more comfortable and enjoyable play.

  • Key: C (available in all 12 major)
  • Tuning: Diatonic, equal-tuned
