The result of over 100 years of tradition and German craftsmanship, it is still the number one choice of top professionals and the most recognizable model all over the world, known for its full tone and wood comb. Play the Marine Band and be a part of history. Available in 12 major keys, lower and higher octave and minor tunings.

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.

After several frustrated years of playing, wearing out, and replacing cheap harps, I bit the bullet and bought the Marine Band. I had high hopes, (my teacher spoke highly of them) and I am not disappointed. The sound is smooth,balanced, and in tune and it's just easy to sound good. I guess you get what you pay for!

Hohner's Marine Band series delivers some serious quality for any harp player. With the various keys available and the very good longevity these are sure to serve well for a long period of time per instrument. I have an entire case full of all the variations and I haven't gotten a dud yet! It's definitely a good investment for the gigging professional or a serious enthusiast. Five stars!
