A good harmonica

31.03.2015
I bought it to start my customization training. After changing the comb, embossing, tuning and reed gaping it is playing like a charm. The quality OTB it is good too, if you like the rough wood comb.

Still good after all these years!

Marine Bands have been around for ever and are simply the classic Blues Harps. They bend easily, have responsive reeds and produce plenty of volume.

As the reeds are very responsive they are also great for quieter folk music - which I mainly play these days.

Marine Bands are not necessarily the easiest for beginners though. They are smaller than some other models which can make hitting single notes difficult when you are just starting out, and they do benefit from being broken in gently.

The older models had uncoated wooden combs which could swell quite badly and cut the unwary players lips, but Hohner are now coating the wood so this should not longer be a problem.

A highly recommended harp!

The original "Old Faithful!

Gerry F, 02.09.2017
I first took up the harmonica around 30 years ago, but at various stages I have given it up for a time in favour of other instruments. That said I always come back to it.

In the early days I worked my way through quite a few of Hohner?s Brands Silver Star, Blues Band, Special 20, Big River and Marine Band. I settled on Marine Bands as my ?go to? harmonica as many years ago. Why you might ask, when they are not as easy as some to play?

For me it?s all about the sound - I believe the wooden comb with the MB?s reeds and side vents in a smaller body produces a warm clear mellow sound, ideal for anything from blues to folk to country music.

The wooden combs do not now seem to swell as they used to and if you are not a big bender of notes you can get years of pleasure out of a Marine Band, and I firmly believe it is worth putting in the work to master them.

Hohner Marine Band

06.05.2014
Very nice harp for little money. Excellently manufactured and a nice handling for a beginner.
An advantage for maintenance is that she cover plates are fixed with screws.
The sound is nice, it makes a warm tone and is easy to bend.
I would recommend this harp especially to people who look for the sound of Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash.
