I started playing a bit of harmonica when I lived by myself, I am still very definitely a begginner but now have 4 flatmates!! I don't wanna disturb them but I want to practice. A friend suggested I by a low pitched C (seydel) cos they're quieter, but then I read it can be harder to bend notes on lower pitched instuments, not good for a begginner!

Does anyone have any advice??

low c is pretty low, kind of difficult as you say...

a low F, E or D might be a better compromise.. low F has the most probability of being used in the future, but is a bit higher pitched. another alternative would be go with a G, that is in the lower range, but pretty useful

to me a standard C is very important for a new player since most lessons are geared to aC harp. thinking creatively, why not try practicing in your car say? or if there are woods nearby, take a walk and practicew when you are out in nature.

i do like a low C for some things, and one of my most used harps is a hering chromatic bari in C. you might consider a G or a low F as well, these are keys i use a lot in the duo.
