This harmonica is a gift for my son. It looks beautiful and seems to be of high quality. My son appears to be very pleased with it.

My kids love this. We will practise
The Harmonica in the key-of c, that I purchased is a really nice product at a great price.
I did not realize at the time, that there are 7 different harmonica’s, one for each musical key. But that’s on me, not you.
In my younger years I learned to read music and played both a brass instrument & a guitarwith good success. I could play a wide range of music & blend in nicely, never out of key.
Anyway, I always wanted to try playing the harmonica & yours is a nice product to experiment with.
I bought for my grandkids for their birthday's one set in Southern Indiana age 12. The other set in Omaha, Nebraska age 15.
They each play the piano. Additionally the two in Omaha play the the violin.. One in Omaha also plays guitar.
They will take the harmonica seriously and I expect good accomplishment.
Ask me again in 2023.
Honestly a great purchase for an intermediate level. Very clear and vibrant sound. Feels very good in the hands. It comes in a very nice packaging. Great for a gift as well!
Appreciate the ease of use, sleek appearance and smooth sound.
Best sounding easy to blow in to produce sounds even looks nice
very nice item,well made very clear sound in full range,worth the price
Very nice sound. Now I just have to learn how to play it.
I've played blues harp for 50 years.
This is a new toy
Well worth the money, harmonica was crafted perfectly.
The harmonica works just fine
Sounds beautiful, takes little effort to learn, being a beginner! Great value!
Nice harp with a sweet voice. The way it fits the hand and . The long trip from low to high really opens up the range . I found out the fun of a melody every body knows to twist it high or low …
Priced right,sounds good,nice to look at and hold in your hands.It does take time to get my breathing into rhythm.
Bought 2 of these. My son loves it plays for hours. Very good quality
It is good quality and worth for the price.

Beautiful Harmonica and sounds amazing
I am a beginner and this harmonica helps me learn.
Good Harmonica Thank.
Fast shipping. Harmonicas look great, sound great. Very happy.
Has great sound. Love it.
I'm new to harmonicas after playing guitar for a few years. I bought this on a whim just to see if i could tell the difference between others that I've bought.
This harp is a HUGE difference! It's a full scale fine instrument that has an incredible sound. The scale range is wide and makes me sound better than I am, so far. I always break it out when practicing. It's easy to figure out without the numbered holes.
It feels solid and comes with a pro grade case.
It's such a finely made instrument that I bought (2) 10 holers in different keys to round out the growing collection. Those are also great and it helps to hear the sound of different keys.
Overall very satisfied and hope I get good enough to discover its full range!

I have quite a few harmonicas but they’re all 10-hole diatonics. I thought this would be a fun way to branch out without spending a ton of dough. I knew a tremolo harp is supposed to play multiple reeds for every tone. At this price, I was nervous whether this harmonica would really work that way. It does! There are 48 reeds in this baby! It sounds beautiful as each note is actually a little harmony that gets a slight vibrato effect as the waves are ever so slightly out of phase with each other. I’ve noticed the amount of vibrato is mostly consistent from one hole to another and it is somewhat controllable by how you position the harmonica in your mouth. Holding the harmonica higher into your upper lip and angling the front face down a little produces more vibrato. The tuning is good. So-how do you play it? It was both more like a diatonic and less like one than I expected at the same time, in different aspects. The biggest surprise to me is that you cannot make a tone by drawing at the same position you can by blowing. The top reeds and bottom reeds for each position are identical and oriented in the same direction. But every other hole acts like a draw note on a diatonic. I didn’t immediately notice this nuiance because the holes are so close together, it is very difficult to play only one hole at a time. For the most part, they are arranged in the same relationship to each other as a diatonic but there are a few differences. This basically plays how a diatonic might if it had 12 holes. It took me less time than I expected to be able to play some of the same melodies on this as I can on a diatonic. But only first position stuff. I can’t get it to bend much at all. One factor is that it takes more breath than a diatonic, because you’re sucking air past twice as many reeds. Also, I find I can’t play it nearly as fast as I can a diatonic. Again, this may be related to it needing more air, but I also think it’s simply because it is physically so much longer. Having to skip over the direction-changes-direction-every-other-hole holes, you end up moving around a lot more. Also, I just Want to play it slower so I can hear the vibrato ringing from the multiple reeds harmonizing with each other. So I find myself replaying all the very first beginner songs I ever learned to play on a diatonic. And they sound amazing!

This is a beautiful and high quality 28 hole tremolo harmonica with hard case.
worth every penny!
It's awesome, it sounds good. Good quality. My husband likes it.. It worth the price.Came with a hard case for protection.
I annoy everyone with because I can't play it. But if I'm I bed and a song or commercial comes on I like... out comes the harmonica
For beginners even intermediate player. Sounds is greater than expected. Good price also! I am so happy to get this one!!
This is a great buy for a 2 octave harmonica. It will certainly give you more range than normal. It's in the key of C. Has a lovely case and sounds nice. Would make a great musical gift to someone who might be interested!
Its perfect and I encourage you all to purchase it
Sound is so smooth. Never had such sound quality harmonica and beautiful made.This great value for your money!
I bought this for my 9 year-old daughter. She could learn fundamental technics and finally make beautiful sound. Don’t compare to toy harmonicas from dollar shop. If you are on a budget, hands down.
I’ve played blues harps for years. This is my first tremolo harp. I got it for a different sound when playing solo melodies. I will enjoy learning to play it.

Wow! That is the best word I have to describe this harmonica. This is not a beginner's instrument even though it's priced for such. First, the case is sturdy and the liner appears to be well attached. When opened you first find a polishing cloth that easily removes the fingerprints left on the beautifully engraved plate covers. This harmonica has a good sound and the reeds respond easily with little breath effort.

This is a very well crafted harmonica. The tremolo feature is excellent and it projects beautifully. The chrome is brilliant and the note are all spot on. It came in a very solid hard shell case and also with a cleaning cloth.

"Mouth organ," "pocket harp", call 'em what you will, a good harmonica is a wonderful thing. And the Eastar 24 Holes Harmonica Admiral Performance Competition Harmonica takes that "wonderful" and extends it for another entire octave.
This is a melody player, not a "blues harp." It's principles sonarities come from being "blown" in the named key, not so much 'inhaled' and "bent" in the named key's 4th.
That makes the key of C a good choice. (Blues harps are usually better in the named keys of A and D so that their pentatonic inhaled and bent notes work in the oft preferred guitar keys of E and A.)
And it's also why the extended range is so, SO nice. Especially since the upper notes on this excellent harmonica are sonically rich, not thin and piercing as they often are on a lesser instrument.
The quality of a harmonica is best revealed by its sound -- the place where this one most particularly shines. But along with its rich sound there are other indicators that this, despite its very reasonable price here on Amazon, is no "cheapy."
One is the quality of it chrome covers and its comb. -The later of which has white indicators to help you find your place when starting a song. A nice touch I've missed even on some pretty pricey 'harps.'
Its case, too, is solid. "Deluxe" if you will. The Admiral Performance Competition Harmonica is thus one you'll be happy to take with you and, even more, proud to pull out and play.
Well, at least I will! More amazing because my own playing is most commonly blues.
But this 'harp' will be going places with me. After all, we should always be ready to break out in song!
The Admiral 24 Holes Harmonica is a well crafted solid instrument. Love it.
