Hohner Marine Band Classic major D harmonica
The One, the Only, the Original. That's the Hohner Marine Band Classic's slogan. It's true too, as this instrument has been at the top of the heap since 1896, and is still played by professional harmonica players around the globe. Thanks to legends like Bob Dylan, the Hohner Marine Band Classic is an essential part of pop music history.
A real Hohner harmonica
Enthusiasts will surely agree that a real Hohner instrument stands head and shoulders above the competition. As far as design, sound, and feel are concerned, an authentic Hohner fits ergonomically in your hand for a great playing experience. Nothing beats the renowned Hohner quality, which isn't surprising if you consider they have over 150 years of experience making harmonicas! Some of the production process is done by hand because Hohner believes that good harmonicas simply can't be made by machines alone. Their instruments are therefore still inspected manually for their sound and optical quality, and are tuned by hand as well.
The Marine Band Classic in D
Hohner hasn't really changed the Marine Band Classic concept at all since it was introduced to the market in 1896. This reason alone makes it feel like you're holding a piece of history! The brown pearwood comb delivers sparkling, warm tones and rich chords. The tuning plates and reeds are made of brass and the covers are made of stainless steel. This particular Marine Band Classic is tuned to the key of D, which is used to accompany music in A. Invest in an original Hohner Marine Band Classic harmonica and play a part in history!
