Suitable harmonica for playing classical Chinese pentatonic music?

(Disclaimer: I'm posting here because who knows--it might yield helpful research data for someone; what I'm seeking, however, is personal advice. Also, I'll readily admit my absolute ignorance of both the implicit subjects.)

Common agreement seems to be that Baby's First Harmonica is the Hohner Blues Band in the key of C: simple, readily available, and low sunk cost. If I can muster the focus to persevere beyond the 101 point, what sort of harmonica (ideally <~$50 USD) might lend itself to the scales characteristic of Chinese traditional music (or modern Cpop songs drawing thereupon?)

Why? Reasons.
