Which Harmonica to buy?

Hey folks I want to learn to play a musical instrument I used to be rather good with the piano but quit it after i moved house. So I decied to get something a bit more portable and cheap! Aparently a good harmonica can cost as little as £30 problem is I'm not sure which one I should be getting.
I have decided it is problem best to get a C-harmonica but I am wondering what brands out there are decent.

^ is one I am looking at buying.
Any tips or links to sites are welcome
Thanks.

If you're planing to play blues style improv then you'll want a 10-hole diatonic. Some really good instruments come in the 30-ish range. Hohner (Marine Band, Blues Harp, Special 20, Big River), Lee Oskar, and Suzuki Blues Master.

If you're wanting to play folk/gospel tunes then you might prefer a Hohner Golden Melody or any number of Tremolo and Octave harps. The Suzuki Two-Timer is a good tremolo in that price range and you can get two Hohner Echo Celestes in that price range.

If you're thinking classical or more traditional tunes that need chromatics - the Hohner Educator 10 is in your range. Chromatics are easier for people who have played another instrument to grasp.

Related to the chromatics, solo tuned diatonics are pretty good for tune playing too. The Hohner Marine Band Soloist 364S (the "s" is important) is great for tune playing. Coming from piano, you might prefer this particular model because of the way the scale is layed out. http://www.themusicroom-online.co.uk/product_info.php/cPath/294_297_298/products_id/4795 It's also not as hot for playing blues improv.

You have a choice about a few issues here. Diatonic, Tremolo/Octave, or Chromatic. Each has a place in their types of music.

Then your choice is whether you want a wood comb, plastic comb, or sealed wood comb. Some people (myself included) prefer the tone of the wood comb. But, wood tends to split and crack when it gets wet and beginners play wet. With plastic combs you don't get the swelling of wood but you have a little different tone quality. Sealed wood is a compromise between the two.

Hohner is the world leader. They've been around a long time and most pros use them. Suzuki, Lee Oskar, and Seydel are really good too. The Marine Band you're looking at is very standard for playing improv blues - but it does have a wood comb.
