Of the harmonicas that we've tested that cost under $10.00, our own "Blue Steel" is the best! It's brass reed plates are recessed into the blue plastic comb providing a smooth(meaning comfortable and fast)feeling instrument. Great for folks just starting out - not yet sure if they want to try to become the next PT Gazell. Inexpensive enough to give away at Sunday schools, classrooms, family reunions, backyard get-togethers, and as corporate promotions, the Blue Steel is the best harmonica value we've found! Now we can sell them 12 at a time in a single key for a great discount price, which comes out to $2.50 harmonicas each. Currently only available in the keys A, C, D, and G.
