Blues

Although early harmonicas (and the Richter tuning system, which is still ubiquitous) were originally designed to play a kind of German Oom-pah music, they are, perhaps most closely connected with the blues, with artists such as Sonny Terry, Junior Wells and Sonny Boy Williamson using the instrument in quite a different way to the musical intentions of its inventors. Blues is generally (but not exclusively) performed on a 10 hole diatonic harmonica, its popularity amongst early blues musicians being largely related to its low cost, decent acoustic volume and its easy portability

Suzuki Olive Harmonica

£56.99

14 Keys available

The Suzuki Olive harmonica has modern slightly vented cover-plates that have a bright olive colour, achieved through the use of a high tech process that doesn't utilise any colouring material, ensuring lasting durability and a clear tone. Hybrid Wood-Resin Comb Historically, most harmonicas had wooden combs. This type of comb provides a warm tone, but is prone to absorbing moisture, leading to warping and deformation over time. Many manufacturers responded to this problem by creating a plastic comb, which solves the issue of expansion, but which results in a different tone to wood. Suzuki, in contrast, created a wood-resin composite material for the comb, which is composed of over 50% wood fibres encased in impermeable resin. This provides the tone of a traditional wooden harmonica with the swell resistance of plastic. First utilised on the popular Manji diatonic, this comb has been widely praised by players. Made in Japan Air-tightness is incredibly important in producing a harmonica that is both easy to play and responsive. Suzuki harmonicas use state of the art manufacturing processes to ensure an extremely high level of airtightness. As a consequence, the  Suzuki Olive responds rapidly to quick phrases, and provides excellent responsiveness to bends. Suzuki is unique in its utilisation of a welded-reed process, which ensures an extremely high level of accuracy of reed attachment and reed/slot alignment. This enables the reeds to respond to advanced techniques, such as over-blowing, to achieve consistently rich and exciting sounds. These achievements are a consequence of Suzuki's adherence to the Japanese tradition of 'Kaizen', which involves seeking continual, incremental improvements in all areas of a harmonica's production, from manufacturing through to assembly and quality control. Tone-wise, the Olive is similar to the Manji, with which it shares the same composite comb material. It's vent design, however, is different, which gives it a subtly warmer sound.

Suzuki Overdrive Harmonica

£59.99

7 Keys available

The Suzuki overdrive has been years in the making, the amazing Overdrive Harmonica is so unique, it even has a special patent to protect its amazing design. Precisely placed holes in the top and bottom of this mouth organ allow you to produce thick, rich and beautiful over-blow and over-draw sounds. Although players have been bending notes for more than a century, it has only recently been discovered that when you draw bend, it is the BLOW reed that makes the bent note. Conversely, when you blow bend, it is the opposite blow reed in the same air channel that makes the bent note. With practice, the new Overdrive Harmonica will let you blow and draw notes with greater control and much bigger volume than any harmonica you've ever played! Comes with a deluxe carrying case. Solid plastic comb   Warning: It has come to our attention that counterfeit Suzuki Harmonicas are being offered for sale through overseas sellers.

Suzuki Promaster Harmonica

£51.99

14 Keys available

24The Suzuki Promaster harmonica (MR350) is one of our most popular upper end diatonics, and is part of the professional range by Suzuki Music. It features ergonomically designed, polished stainless steel reed covers, which provide supreme playing comfort. The comb is precision milled from billet aluminium, then given a satin anodised finish for durability and ease of playing. This provides it with a similar tone to other harmonicas which feature the same comb construction, such as the Seydel Noble, plus outstanding resistance to warping and temperature and humidity related swelling, which can afflict many wooden combs.  Phosphor bronze reed plates, which are a signature of most Japanese-made Suzuki harps, produce the rich tones and clarity so sought after by professional players, and also offer great durability and lifespan. As you'd expect from a Suzuki, airtightness is first class, and the attention to detail in its construction is class-leading. Harpists who try a ProMaster often find that it rapidly becomes their 'go-to' instrument for all styles of music, such is its ease of playing and responsiveness. All ProMasters come with a hard shell, soft lined case to keep your harp in optimum condition. If you want an all round harmonica that can fit with most styles of music, has a great tone and will require minimal maintenance then the ProMaster is definitely one to try! The Suzuki ProMaster is available in all of the 12 standard major keys, plus low F and high G. A valved version of the ProMaster, which enables bending on the blow cycle as well as the draw is also available here.   Warning: It has come to our attention that counterfeit Suzuki Harmonicas are being offered for sale through overseas sellers.

Suzuki Promaster Valved Harmonica

£49.99

13 Keys available

The Suzuki Promaster Valved harmonica is the valved version of the popular MR-350 diatonic harp from the Japanese company. It uses the same polished stainless steel reed covers and satin finish anodised aluminium comb as the standard Promaster, and is similarly comfortable and responsive to play. Where it differs from the MR-350 is in its use of an innovative valve system, which enables bending in the blow as well as the draw cycles. This opens up a whole new world of playing, as the range of notes available is closer to that of a chromatic harmonica than a standard diatonic. The aluminium comb provides the Promaster Valved with exceptional resistance to warping and excellent responsiveness.  Phosphor bronze reed plates, which feature on most Japanese made Suzuki harmonicas, produce the clarity and richness of tone you'd expect from an instrument at this level, whilst also offering class-leading durability. Suzuki is renowned for its attention to detail and the Promaster valved is no exception. Manufacturing tolerances are extremely fine, resulting in a harp with exceptional airtightness and projection. Few harmonicas in this price bracket can compete with the Promaster Valved when it comes to volume! Yet, at the same time, it responds very well to subtle playing dynamics. Like the standard model, the Promaster Valved comes with a custom designed, soft lined hard case, which will help to ensure that your harp remains in perfect condition when it's not being used. The Promaster Valved is available in the 12 standard major keys, plus high G and Low F.

The Suzuki Manji combines advanced technology and functional beauty to create a stunning 10 hole diatonic harmonica. This revolutionary Suzuki diatonic harp is named after Mr. Manji Suzuki, the company's founder — now in his late 80's, however still pretty much in charge. He started with a single hand-built model nearly 70 years ago, and has built Suzuki up into one of the world's premier harmonica manufacturers. Number of holes: 10 Cover plates: Stainless steel Reed plates:  Phosphor Bronze, 20 reeds Comb: Resin Wood Composite Keys: C/G/A (3 piece set) Made in Japan About Suzuki Suzuki is one of the world's leading harmonica manufacturers, and has been producing harmonicas and related instruments in Japan since 1963. Its signature feature is phosphor bronze reeds, which provide a distinctive sound and outlast traditional brass reeds. In common with other harmonicas made in Japan, such as those manufactured by Tombo, Suzukis tend to be tuned to equal temperament, rather than the compromised tuning more commonly found on German made Hohners and Seydels. This makes them ideally suited for playing melody lines, although chords are also possible.

If you're interested in a fresh sound on the 10 hole diatonic, LOTS more bending expression and easy jazzy playing, the Brendan Power PowerBender harmonica is a good choice for you! Same familiar breathing pattern in the upper-middle registers. All draw notes bend everywhere, holes 1-10! On the un-valved version you can overblow every hole 1-10, for full chromatic playing. Overdraws and blow bends are no longer possible or needed on a PowerBender - they are replaced with simple draw bends. On the half-valved version, a mix of normal draw bends and valved blow bends gives full chromaticism. Top octave easy to play (intuitive) as many familiar phrasings can be adopted from the bottom octaves Easy to play in the common positions: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th, and 12th. PowerBender Background PowerBender represents the culmination of 30 years experimenting to create personal alternate tunings. Each one is really usable; I’ve proved that by recording 18 albums with various earlier alternate tunings. They all have excellent qualities that remain valid for those who wish to explore them further, and will be described and demonstrated in other books. However, I believe that in the POWERBENDER I have hit a winning combination of strengths that rivals the Richter tuning for all-round playability, but surpasses it for expressiveness, ease of play and contemporary relevance. The POWERBENDER is a new universal tuning updating the 10 hole diatonic for modern music styles, which emphasize note bending and fluent improvisation in different keys. It builds on all the best parts of the traditional Richter tuning, while altering the scale to make the real juicy, important notes much easier to obtain, with fantastic expressive ability throughout the whole three octave range. Its beauty and strength is that it relies overwhelmingly upon draw bending for chromaticism and expression, an easy technique all players master quickly. Every draw note bends a semitone or more. Overblows are still available but significantly reduced in importance, as they are not required for most playing. A development of my earlier tuning experiments, the POWER BENDER reached its final form in 2008; since then I have adopted it as my main tuning for improvising in blues, jazz, rock, folk and pop styles. It’s such an easy and sweet sounding tuning on out-of-the-box harps that anyone who tries it quickly gets hooked.... Read more

Brendan Power PowerDraw Harmonica - if you're interested in incredible draw bending expression in the top octave whilst retaining all the best aspects of a traditional harp in the lower two octaves, the PowerDraw is a good choice for you! Just top off the standard Richter tuning in holes 1-6 with the logical breathing pattern and draw-bending soul of my PowerBender tuning on holes 7-10. It's a win-win! PowerDraw tuning is a combination of standard Richter (holes 1-6) and PowerBender (holes 7-10). The Best of Both Worlds! It's easy to learn because: The bulk of the harp (holes 1-6) stays exactly the same as normal, so there is no need to re-learn anything in that comfortable range you're so accustomed to. The breathing pattern of holes 1-6 (blow reed low, draw reed high in each hole) is retained all the way up to hole 10 on the PowerDraw! This gives the top octave an instant feeling of familiarity to anyone who tries it, because the techniques and riffs that work so well lower down work up there too Simplified Technique: There are no blow bends and no overdraws needed in the PowerDraw tuning. Two of the most important 'blue' notes in 2nd position (the flat third, which was overblow 6) and the flat fifth (overdraw 7) are now simple draw bends on holes 7 and 8: the octave-up equivalents of the familiar draw bends on holes 3 and 4. Every draw note bends from hole 7-10, soulful and easy! That's right - you can now really WAIL up high on your harp! Plus, in un-valved setup, every hole overblows for chromatic playing, and the upper octave overblows are much easier than the overdraws necessary in Richter tuning. PowerDraw works well with the octave-playing approach of tongue blockers. The notes in the top octave are similar to Richter, but the intervals are slightly different. Octave splitting is actually easier, because both blow and draw notes have a 5 hole split above hole 4. ... Read more

Blues Key Harmonica?

If you are playing on your own, then the key of harmonica you choose to play doesn't really matter too much. This said, higher keys (ie those from C to F#) tend to play 'quicker' and are easier to perform bends on (due to the thinner, more malleable reeds) than lower keys (B down to G and beyond).

If you want to play along with recordings of blues artists, the key of C is a good place to start, as it covers a range of popular tunes written in this key and its second position relative key, G.

Most blues harmonicas use the Richter system to lay out the notes, but, in recent years, alternative tuning have been devised to overcome some of the limitations of Richter (which, after all, was never designed with the blues in mind). Brendan Power's Powerdraw and Powerbender tunings aim to position the notes that need to be bent in places on the harmonica where they can be bent, making blues licks easier and more intuitive. Similarly Seydel's Wilde tuning enables more rocky blues based riffs to be played at higher speeds than would be possible on a traditionally tuned harp.

Best Blues Harmonica

Whilst the exact choice of harmonica is a matter of personal taste, you'll generally want a diatonic harmonica made in Germany or Japan. Our top picks are the Seydel Session Steel, Lee Oskar Major Diatonic, Hohner Rocket and the Suzuki Bluesmaster, but there are many other great models out there.

Blues Harmonica C

Not only is C the most popular key of harmonica, but it's also the one for which most online beginner lessons are created, so it's a good idea to make this key your first purchase in your harmonica musical journey.

How to Play Blues Harmonica

One of the major techniques of blues harmonica is the bending of notes. Unlike on guitar, where the bending is generally up to a higher note, harmonicas are always bent down to a lower note. This gives the distinctive blues sound and provides access to the blues pentatonic scale that is key to creating an authentic blues sound. Mastering bending first requires mastering the ability to play single notes; practise and perfect this first before you attempt any bends.
