Product Review: Fender Hot Rod Deville Harmonica Set


As seen in Guitar Girl Magazine Issue 3 – Ladies Rock the Blues – June 2018

The Fender Hot Rod DeVille 10-hole diatonic seven-piece harmonica set is great for any harmonica player from beginner to advanced. The sleek look and feel of the Hot Rod Deville really sets it apart from other more traditional instruments in this space. We noticed right away that the body has balance and weight, which makes it feel like a quality instrument, and the smoothness of the fit and finish along the note holes makes blowing, inhaling, and moving a breeze.

Upon opening the carrying case, the matte black finish with gold accents, including the iconic Fender logo, is striking. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, sound is not. This harmonica gives a crisp, clean sound with lots of bass in the home range and clear highs as you move away from that zone.

This seven-piece set includes harmonicas in the keys if A, Bb, C, D, E, F and G, all neatly tucked away in a handsome black carrying case that resembles a mini suitcase with loop straps. When you open the case, you see seven harmonicas tightly fit in their own space, with the key of each harmonica clearly labeled in gold, forming a straight line of letters from A through G.

This is the best-looking harmonica set we’ve ever seen and these instruments are a dream to play and to hear.
