SonnyBoy Special 7 and 12 Harmonica Case Set


Information

The Sonnyboy’s 'All New' Special is a new 10-hole diatonic available form Honkin' Tom.

 This model is far superior in quality to many of the cheaper harmonicas currently available on the market, and here they are in the essential 7  and 12 sets including a soft yet durable harmonica case.

In the 7 harmonica set you get the following keys: A, Bb, C, D, E, F, and G. All the essentials.

In the 12 harmonica set you get the full monty of keys: A , A# , B ,C , C# , D , D# , E, F, F#, G, G#

This harmonica is exceptional value for the quality of instrument. It’s good enough to gig with but won’t break the bank. A cracking harmonica to buy for the musically active or the beginner harmonica player who doesn't want to start at the very bottom.

Dont just take my word for it , here is what pro harp player Pat MIssin thinks of them

"Where the old version was obviously Hohner inspired, the new Sonnyboy's Special looks somewhat more Suzuki-like. The reedplates are fully recessed into a black ABS comb and topped with smooth stainless steel covers with minimal engraving on the upper cover to help let you know which way up it is, the whole harp feeling comfortable to the hands and mouth. The covers are vented at the ends, although slightly less than a Marine Band. 

The reedplates are slightly thicker than standard at 1.2mm and are secured with seven Phillips head screws. The size of the reedplates and the screw placement makes them compatible with the Suzuki Harpmaster and Bluesmaster (and possibly some other Suzuki models), but despite their being spot welded rather than riveted to the reedplate, the reeds themselves are quite different. The reeds are quite long and broad, except for the two highest reeds on each plate, with the same slot sizes being used for all keys low to high. The reed/slot toleran ces look very good and the reed adjustment is quite consistent across all the samples I tried, with a nice snappy response and easy to control bends. 

Overblows and overdraws tended to produce those high pitched squeals typical of Asian-made harps, except I did find that I could produce a nice clear sustained hole 4 overblow on each key that I tried, straight out of the box. The tuning is also reasonably consistent, equal temperament at about A=444Hz, the tuning done by some sort of lengthwise abrasion, none of those nasty diagonal file gashes."

A great harmonica set to buy for yourself or as a harmonicsa gift for somebody.
