Buckeye Soul's Voice 16 Hole Chromatic Harmonica Key of C 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 280 but have a mouthpiece similar to the Suzukis. 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 about $180
• holes: 16, 4 octave range
