Which harmonica is better?

Well, im stuck between these two harmonicas. If you have any experience with them, please share.

1. Hohner special 20 Marine-Band in KEY C

2. Lee Oskar

Also, which one is better for old rock, such as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Kiss, etc.

Some people like the sound of the Special 20, some like the Lee Oskar. Most can't tell the difference. It really comes down to personal preferences.

The Lee Oskar has a timbre that's just a touch brighter than a Special 20. Both are a lot brighter than a Marine Band (1896) or any other wooden comb. If you like to tinker and tweak your instruments then the Lee Oskar is a little easier to open up and work on. You can open a Special 20 pretty easy too but Hohner doesn't make interchangeable parts as readily available for that one as does Lee Oskar. [Hohner's Blues Harp is equally easy to tweak as a Lee Oskar though and has parts readily available] A Marine Band isn't any harder to tweak than any other but the thing with nails is that they get loose over time as the wood shrinks and swells.

Playing them is identical no matter which you get. Some people prefer the feel of one over the other. I find the Lee Oskar feels more "hefty" than a Special 20 and bigger in my hands. Some people like that - others don't. They both pull hairs from my 'stache - the Golden Melody and Comet are the best for not ripping hair from your face.

"Better for rock"? Most of the pro players from the days of Zeppelin, AC/DC, Kiss et all (pre-80's) played on a Hohner Marine Band. Probably because that harmonica was readily available back then and cost about $5 -- Some played on a Hohner Super Chromonica 270, it wasn't $5 but is an awesome instrument.

At that level harp: (Hohner Marine Band, Special 20, Blues Harp; Lee Oskar; Suzuki BluesMaster; Hering Blues, Master Blues; Seydel Session, etc...) there isn't a "which is best" - it's a matter of personal tastes and what you like when you play. 90% of everyone wouldn't be able to tell the difference between any of them.

Me? I like Hohner almost exclusively and of the "blues harps" I prefer the Marine Band 1896. My Special 20's are good for taking out in the elements though - they stand up to abuse pretty well. The best benders I have are Hohner Blues Harp and my favorite players tend to be solo-tuned Suzuki Su-21H and Marine Band (364S). Get into harmonica very seriously and you'll find yourself with a big box of all sorts of different harps in all sorts of different keys for all sorts of moods and styles. The reason I tend to prefer the Hohner is probably simply that's what I got used to playing over the years. I'm used to them and know what to expect. That, of course, doesn't make them "better" except for me personally.

But, for what you're asking: either of those two are about the same and you really ought to consider the Marine Band (1896) in your set of options as well.
