Blues (diatonic) models

1847 series – This series includes the Classic, Silver, and Noble. All are similar but the classic has a wood comb, Silver has a plastic comb, and the Noble has an aluminum comb with vented sides.

  1. Hey Larry,
    Its about time someone write about harmonicas, you almost never see anyone playing it anymore even YouTube not many singers play that instrument.

    I love this harmonica guide of yours, I bought one already but I have no idea how to play or what the whole thing means or whether or not its C or D. Awesome article and website, you should definitely start your own tutorial on how to play, I’ll be your first subscriber 😀

    1. Hi Riaz, Thank you for your kind comments, you can Youtube harmonica player videos, that should bring something up for you. To find out what key you have, it should be stamped on the face on the right side, or on the back right top of the cover plate, maybe on the back. For what brand of harmonica you have, is it a wood comb or plastic comb? The brand name should be stamped into the top of the cover plate, Hohner is the most common, what does yours say on it? How to play check this out>Playing Harmonica!

      Hope this helps you out, please let me know if I can help you out in the future.

      Have a blessed day!
