This is the essence of the Classic line -- traditional values and cutting edge technology. Extremely precise tools minimize air loss and ensure a quicker response and bigger volume. As always, each Classic harmonica is exclusively handmade.

Hohner's diatonic harmonicas set the industry standard through their high quality construction, excellent response and unsurpassed tone. Often called "Blues Harps", they have been a fixture as melody and accompaniment instruments in blues, rock, country, and folk bands, as well as many other styles of music and musical ensembles. Richter tuning and undivided air channels allow for bending and overblowing the reeds, creating the signature wailing sound typical of the harmonica.

  • Great Sounding Affordable Harmonica
  • February 03, 2012
  • By: James

The Marine Band harmonica was highly recommended by my musician friends as the best classic sounding rock/blues harmonica available at a reasonable price. It was the harmonica played by many of the greats, so even though I was a beginner, I knew this was the choice for the sounds I wanted to achieve. I have spent many a Summer night out by the fire re-creating some of my favorite harmonica parts to classic rock hits, enjoying the ease of play of this harmonica. And it is durable too, as I may have dropped it once or twice, but it still sounds great after two years of play!
