Hi everyone ,

I'm interested in learning / buying a Chord Harmonica without breaking the bank . I think I would like to give the Easttop 48 ( Model T2-1 )a try . I've seen them for about $200 U.S.
Any thoughts ?

Rockland County , N.Y.

Well .... I wound up purchasing a Hohner Chord 48 Orchestral off of Reverb.com for $200 , yes thats " two hundred dollars " . Guessed at 50 years old in fantastic shape . Guy said his uncle gave it to him about 30 yrs ago and he wasn't interested and it shows ...SCORE !

I was intrigued by those, but with the size and the price I decided I wasn't going to go that route. How do you go about playing one of those? Is it pretty slow moving between chords?

You would basically carry the " rhythm " part . Moving between chords depends on your own reflex and ability to move with memory of where the chords are .
Yes , then can be pricy ( around $2000.00 )but I lucked out at $200.00. Harmonica players like us know the difference between a poor kept and a well kept harmonica especially during these COVID times . If you learn how to properly sterilize a harp , that's half the battle . The other half is finding a great deal as I did
Good luck my friend
