Although they're still very popular today, like many harmonicas with a wood comb* they tend to leak quite a lot of air, which can make them harder to play, particularly when bending notes. While some experienced players prefer the look and feel of a wooden harmonica, beginners will generally be better off starting with a plastic comb harmonica such as the Hohner Pro Harp or the Lee Oskar Blues Harp.
*The comb is the name for the central block of the harmonica, made from plastic, wood or occasionally metal, which is shaped a bit like a comb.For help choosing a harmonica try our harmonica guide.
