New and interesting harmonica from UK Online Store
The all new Sonnyboy’s Mojo is now available in the seven most popular keys:

“Just intonation” tuning gives this harp a traditional blues sound with
great sounding chords. With its combination of chrome plated reed plates and shiny black lacquered cover plates this harmonica has a classy appearance.
Here is a review from Pat Misson
Another new harmonica from Sonnyboy's Music Store. This harp has a traditional sandwich-style construction, rather than the combs with recessed reedplates of their previous models. The comb appears to be ABS, but is mostly solid, unlike the hollow cross-section of most injection molded ABS combs and is somewhat reminiscent of the comb used on the Suzuki Manji. It is also sanded nicely flat top and bottom, providing a good seal against the reedplates. The reedplates are plated brass and attached with eight Phillips head screws. The covers are stainless steel with a nice black finish, with the name and hole numbers screen printed, rather than embossed or engraved, giving the covers a very smooth feel.
It feels as nice as it looks, with no sharp edges or harsh corners. I was a little surprised when I first played it, as it is tuned in 7-limit Just Intonation, the traditional fine tuning for diatonics, with ultra smooth chords and the noticeably lower tuned 5 and 9 draw. I'm not certain, but I think that this is the first time I've played a Chinese-made harp that was in JI out of the box. The reed adjustment is also very consistent, giving a good response over the full range of the harp, draw and blow bends are all easy to hit cleanly.
The Mojo is definitely a good choice for the blues player who wants a more traditional sound, but who doesn't want to deal with the problems often associated with wood combs.
