Hohner 1896 Marine Band Harmonica

10 holes, 20 reeds, 41/8" long, octave tuned, wooden comb.

Internationally recognized by performers for its beauty and simplicity, this is the most favored and famous harmonica in the world. The Hohner 1896 Marine Band Harmonica features finely chrome-plated heavy convex covers and a distinctive pearwood comb, packaged in a plastic hinged case with U.S. Marine Band photo.

The original blues harmonica with the legendary sound. The Marine Band with its traditional pearwood comb and unique cover design has been manufactured for more than 100 years and is still the instrument of choice for top professional players. 

This is the harmonica we all grew up with, and it's a favorite among the oldtimers, however the wooden comb makes it like playing a corn cobb - it is definetly not recommended for beginners. A beginner in search of the Marine Band sound should choose a Special 20 which has a plastic comb.

They are now a good choice f...

Should not be your first choice.

The most overrated harmonica in the world. In its price class there are many better. Hohner makes some great harps, but this isn't one of them. Go for a Special 20, Suzuki Promaster, Manji, a Lee Oscar. Stiff reeds, soggy comb. Why fight the harp? - you ...
