I'm very very beginner and have been learning some songs on a Hoehner Special 20 (C Diatonic).
I was going to share the fun with my daughter so I bought her one of these:
It just says it is a 10 hole Blues Harmonica, but I discovered it has a strange scale. It seems like a C Chromatic scale. It has no slide. 4 and 5 blow are both C. Very odd to me. They actually sent me a warranty replacement because it seemed like a manufacturing defect, but the replacement was identical!
I was wondering if it is strange to market this as a Blues harmonica, and if it's strange to have a C Chromatic as a beginner kids harp. Is my expectation that it would be a C diatonic just way off?
