NO LONGER AVAILABLE | Hohner Special 20 (Country Tuned 560CT)
SORRY, NO LONGER AVAILABLE | Don't be confused. This is not a standard tuned diatonic and it is not what we recommend for beginners. This is a special purpose harmonica. The "Hohner Special 20 (Country Tuned)" diatonic is made specifically to be played in the 2nd Position and is used for songs where a complete major scale is needed while playing in the 2nd Position. The hole 5 draw is tuned a half-step higher than a standard diatonic to make the major scale possible. Comes complete with it's own hard plastic protective case.
Dave Gage Thoughts: This is a great harmonica for playing melodies and country music in the 2nd Position where you can take advantage of the bending capabilities on the low draw notes. (Unlike the Lee Oskar Melody Makers, the Country Tuned Special 20 is not keyed to the 2nd Position key. These harmonicas are keyed and refer to the 1st Position key, as most diatonics are. For instance, if you buy a key of "C" Country Tuned 560, you would play it in the 2nd Position key of "G". For most players, these harmonicas are not useful in the 1st Position key.)
