Beata Kossowska(Germany) Simply it is the best for me.
Chromatic, 10 Hole (Diatonic)
During my attendance at the Frankfurt Music Fair, a colleague asked me to collect some Suzuki Harmonicas. I had heard they were good, but only from what others had told me. The people on the Suzuki stand very kind and let me play every model. I was so impressed, I couldn’t hide my enthusiasm! That was the beginning - it was like a 'first love'. They were simply the best and finally I had found the ideal harp for me! Certainly proving why Suzuki is one of the most formidable Harmonica manufacturers in the world!
