"I like the clear, crisp tone and build quality of Suzuki Harmonicas, both Chromatic and Diatonic. One of the main reasons I play Suzuki harmonicas is because the reads last the longest of any brand I've tried."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!
