Need some advise with a purchase?

I am looking into buying a harmonica and I want to know what do I need to look for? As far as what is the best quility, style, and company to go with, ( include any other useful information you think I will need to know) Not looking to spend over 100 dollars for one. Please leave links with your responses thanks

It really doesn't matter a lot where you buy it - most places price them just about the same. What matters is picking one that meets your needs as a player.

When buying online, I like Musician's Friend. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/harmonicas but it doesn't matter a whole lot. A Hohner Marine Band in C from one is the same as one from anywhere else and will cost about the same.

You have essentially four type choices to pick from:

10-hole diatonic: This is what most people start on and is what you're familiar with in pop music and especially the blues. If you're planning to learn to wail the blues then this is what you want. It'll also work well for "cowboy by the campfire" type tunes.

Chromatic - it's a diatonic with a slide assembly that lets you raise each pitch a 1/2 step so that you get all of the notes of the scale. Just about essential for playing jazz and classical. Not uncommon playing pop and blues.

Tremolo (aka Echo) - it has two reeds for each pitch tuned slightly apart so that it sounds a little like a French cafe accordion. They're great for playing folk and gospel tunes. Not so hot for wailing the blues. Very popular in Asia and parts of Europe. Almost unknown in the US.

Octave - it also has two reeds for each pitch but they're tuned an octave apart which gives a fuller or bigger sound. Also good for folk and gospel but not good for pop and blues.

Brands:
Hohner is the all-time leading manufacturer of harmonicas in the world and has been for over 100 years. You can't go wrong with one of theirs. Lee Oskar is popular with a lot of blues players and are good quality. Suzuki is more famous for their tremolo harps but their 10-hole diatonics are good too. Herring has been competing with Hohner head-on all these years and some people really like their 1923 model.

Keys:
Since the harmonica is diatonic (do re mi fa... and no black keys), players generally collect a lot of them in order to play in all 12 keys. The harp to start with is C major. The reason is only that most tutorials and instructional videos are for C harp. Otherwise, it really doesn't matter so much if you're not playing with other people or recordings - any key will work identically.

Models:
(this is simply my personal preference and other people might not agree)
* 10-hole diatonic: Hohner Marine Band (1896) and Blues Harp. The Special 20 is great but I prefer a wood comb. The plastic comb of the Special 20 is an advantage to beginners though.
* 10-hole diatonic (equal tempered): There's really only one - Hohner Golden Melody. Outstanding for tune and gospel players.
* Chromatic: Hohner Super Chromonica 270. It's not cheap but it's iconic and very well made.
* Tremolo: Suzuki Hu21, Hohner Echo Harp (55/80 double sided) [the Hohner is wetter than the Suzuki]
* Octave: Hohner Comet
* Solo-tuned diatonic: Hohner Marine Band 364S
* Odd tunings and customizing: Lee Oskar [you can't beat the ease of customizing these]

notice that I lean heavily toward the Hohner models - that's my personal preference. I also like wooden combs but that too is my personal preference.

My preference for key when I'm playing alone is low-G or A. I just prefer that lower sound. But, for most folk/tune playing, a C or D harp is most suitable.
