I am growing an interest in getting a Swan Bass Harmonica & was wondering if anyone here has or has played a Bass Harmonica.

Any & all comments welcome.

Edit: Nobody?

That swan bass looks pretty cool.
I'd love to play with one.

Not played one myself, but I do love lower tuned instruments in general. I have LLF diatonic which is cool, but hard to sound melodic (at least with my skill).

Bass harmonica seems to be a bit of a niche, something that's more often used as accompaniment for another lead harmonica.

If you do get one, I'd love to hear a recording.

The Huang double bass looks cool too, as do the mini Bass and Mini Chord harmonicas that Tombo and Easttop make. Maybe the smaller less expensive bass and chord harmonicas will help bring them out into the mainstream more.
