Suzuki endorsement

April 2020.
Suzuki music is the world’s largest player in the field of harmonica making.
Qualitatively the best and most beautiful thing for sale.
You could say the Rolls Royce among the harmonicas.
There are chromatic harmonicas for sale at Suzuki
€ 200.- to about € 4000.- If you receive an email from CEO mr Shun Aoji that you can represent Suzuki for the Netherlands as a professional harmonica player, through an endorsement, that is remarkable and I feel it as an honor. I had tried the standard ChromatiX model for a while,
but I can get started with the Sirius, pretty much
the showpiece of Suzuki. Thanks also to Marco Oonincx from EMP Music, who introduced me to Suzuki.
