What type of music does the Hohner Echo Harp play?

I am looking for a harmonica that i can play with rock songs, would this one do it?

The echo (tremolo) is for melody playing of folk/gospel/and ethnic music best. It's not so hot for that bluesy harmonica sound we hear in American pop music.

The larger Hohner echos (such as the 56/96 M2 "Echo Harp") will sound a bit like a slightly out of tune accordion you might hear in a French cafe. Probably not what you'd want in "rock" music.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGDZTdamEQ4 is a really good example of what a tremolo harmonica sounds like played well. If that's the sound you're after in your music then it'll be fine. The Hohner tremolo is even wetter than is the Suzuki.

Add: What you typically hear in American pop music (country, rock, blues) is a 10-hole diatonic such as the Hohner Marine Band, Special 20, Blues Harp, models or the Lee Oskar style blues harps. You can get one for about $7 (Hohner Blues Band for example) but you'll probably enjoy (and have an easier time learning) one in the $25-$35 range. The typical key to start with is C major. Reason being that it's pretty common and most tutorials are done for C harp.
