I play Hohners, I have 3 golden melody's, 2 cross harps, 2 meisterklasse, 1 blues bender, the chromonica, a super 64, and a cheapy Huang. I don't have a blues bone in my body, but I love the blues and I keep trying to get out of my box. I am a play at home guy, I do have a few guitar playing friends that I see once or twice a year to play with, and they love me. I play by ear and just blend in with what ever they play. I got my eye's set on the special 20's, but just cant pull the trigger knowing that I already have the keys I need already. And that I would be the only one appreciating them. I have been trying to play harp with my guitar, and that is not ready for the public yet. Don't hold your breath. I need to find someone local that wants a harp player to jam with. I can play most any old time church hymn song, camp fire songs, stuff like that, but I just don't have the blues mojo in me to bend and wale or scream. I get by though.
Don't waste your money on Piedmont Blues harps, the case is worth 10 bucks but the harps suck. Try buying 2 or 3 Bushman Delta Frosts. Keys A,C and C will cover 70 percent of the music played at Jams and open mics.

Ted suggested I just picked up the Horner Piedmont Blues 7 piece set, I got them from Guitar Center $25.00 out the door. Going to start playing them right now...
