This set gives you keys C, G, A, D, & E. There seems to be a consensus that if you buy F and B-flat you're pretty much set, though the Special 20 comes in 14 keys, maybe in case you want to play Mozart. These are so much better than the cheap Hohners I grew up playing, real musical instruments that produce sound effortlessly, bend notes with considerable expressiveness, and work very well on both the blow and the draw--if those are the right terms. I remember my cheap set being a trial for note-production on the draw notes. These are made in Germany, as printed on the harmonicas, and as stated on the Hohner website. Don't panic, the case of course is made in China, and that sticker is the first thing you see, of standard Case Logic type quality, but very nicely fitted for the harps plus space for a couple more, which in due course, for me, will be that F and that B-flat. Btw I also checked the price all over the 'verse (as they call it on Firefly), and every place has the same price, so you can just stop looking and get it here. Great way to enjoy playing music. I own a pretty complete set of tools for that job--nice Yamaha stage piano, Gibson Les Paul electric, Martin dreadnought acoustic, and recently a cool Yamaha electronic drum kit, which is the bee's knees, let me tell you. But this is the ultimate portable, entry-level musical instrument, very unpretentious, and honestly you can sound pretty passable on them soon enough that you won't toss them aside with a snarl of frustration. Also a great gift. But folks, don't play like Bob Dylan. I just bought the mono recordings box set of his first eight albums, and the guy, genius though he is, sounds like he's signaling ships at sea when he blasts that harp. I'm not the only one who seems to think his headache-inducing harmonica work renders many tracks unlistenable. Bobbie, think of the neighbors! I mean, am I missing something or is Mr. Robert Zimmerman truly bad at playing the harmonica? OK, you're a bard, but stick to the lute, will you?
