Let me start of by saying that I usually love Hohner harps (the Marine Band 1896 is my go to), so I've come to expect a lot from them. Sadly, the Big River fell short, way short. It definitely has some of that classic Hohner tone, but all the tone in the world can't make up for how badly it leaks. Given that this is (supposedly) still a hand tuned, German made harp, the insane amount of air leakage ( on the low notes especially) is absolutely unacceptable. These may not be horribly expensive, but they're still not exactly cheap, so to me it definitely seems like they're ripping off their customers. This MAY just be an issue for the one I bought, maybe I just got a defective unit, but I've since read othere horror stories about this harp and others on the MS Series being notoriously leaky. My advice? Save your money and get a Marine Band, Special 20, Suzuki Manji, Seydel Session Steel or any other pro grade harp. If you're looking for something cheaper but still decent quality, I'd recommend a Suzuki Bluesmaster. The Big River Harp is one to avoid.
