Buckeye Soul's Voice 12 Hole Chromatic Harmonica Key of C Gold w/ABS Comb & Wooden Case
These harmonicas were apparently made for the Buckeye music festivals. I just recently acquired a number of these. They are basically the same size as a Hohner 270 and have a similar mouthpiece. The comb is black ABS and they appear to be gold plated. The box is wooden. Some of the boxes show slight shelf wear. I read the reeds are phosphor bronze.
I've tried one of these and they are pretty air tight and play well. It is much better than some other less expensive chromatics I have tried.
I found out they were specially made for Buckeye by Qi Mei in China. They play well and sold for over $100. I read a review on Slidemeister that said they play favorably when compared to a Hohner 270.
• holes: 12, 3 octave range
• reeds: 48

This model has the same dimensions as the Hohner 270.
