The Hohner Marine Band 125th Anniversary Harmonica is a special Limited edition model from Hohner to celebrate 125 years of this model being in production.
It comes in a retro box and features cover plates with the design known in the harmonica world as the ‘Mickey Mouse ears’, where the plates are attached to the comb with two curved extensions.
As you’d expect with a traditional Marine Band model, the comb is lacquered pearwood and the reeds are brass. Cover plates are stainless steel.
Only available in the key of C, this is the perfect harp for collectors, enthusiasts, or any player looking for a great sounding harmonica at a reasonable price. Made in Germant just like they were 125 years ago.
The Marine Band is the archetypal blues harmonica. Almost unchanged since it was patented in 1896, this iconic instrument embodies the real deep blues like no other and is the benchmark against which all others are judged. Initially designed for European folk music, it quickly became a prominent voice of American blues of the early 20th century, played by all harmonica players of this era. It’s the soundtrack of broken hearts and dancing all night, of endless prairies and sweaty nightclubs. Like no other harmonica, the Marine Band 1896 is an invitation to express yourself in music, a key to unlock your creativity. When you discover this piece of living musical history, you won’t just play the blues. You’ll feel the blues.
