Harmonica Key

What is the best harmonica key for the following types of music that I play (listed below)????

My old harmonica that I normally use finally broke and I have decided to invest in a Suzuki Promaster valved harmonica.
The music that I normally play is blues type rock and folk rock.
Normally I play a lot of music from Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Neil Young. I also like to play a lot of the newer Christian music (not the slower old stuff).

What would be the best key of harmonica that I could get that would cover all of this? Or what is the best key overall that would cover the majority of music that is out there (ie: if you could only have one harmonica key, what would it be?)?

I am not a beginner, but I have never really owned a lot of different keys so I want some ideas from those who might have used all 12......?

C,A,D,G Harmonicas are what you need!
________________________________

A little advice....You should know what you are getting into before you buy a "Valved" Harmonica. Valved harmonicas are not necessary unless you use a chromatic (which has 4 slots per hole. Thus the valves [Windsavers]).

Valved harmonicas respond Much more differently than regular diatonics. Not always for the better.

I would suggest Actually practicing and trying to achieve overblows and overdraws before buying one.
________________________________

The best key would be to have 4 keys.

C, A, D, G.

Most guitar players play in G,E,A and D.
So to play 2nd position for those tunes you would need C,A,D and G harps.

***If you play a lot of 1st position, it sounds like you do, then get the keys of the guitar players songs. G,E,A and D.

*****If you do not know what 1st position or 2nd position is, DO NOT buy a valved harmonica. You should be nowhere near purchasing one yet.**** (The overall benefits of the instrument would NOT be compareable to the price paid.)*****

Suzuki makes great harps. But they can be too pricey. Way more than a good harp should be.

Hohner Marine Band 1896 and Special 20's are good harmonicas.
