Hohner Marine Band Soloist
Frédéric W., 20.05.2011
The Marine Band Soloist is a harmonica with more notes than the traditional Marine Band. It is therefore very practical for the solo game, as the name indicates.
In practice, it covers all the notes of the diatonic scale in C on several octaves. In order to get the intermediate notes with the bending technique, it goes well except on a few notes that remain very difficult (if not impossible) to obtain when not professional. From memory, it seems to me that the middle sib is very difficult to obtain. But is there a diatonic harmonica of this type among competitors that is easier and with this sound ??
For the bending crazy, there is also another model, the XB-40, but be careful, the sound is not at all the same (the blades are thicker and the harmonica much bigger too). The technology used has nothing to do with the Marine Band.

Let us note however that this Marine Band Soloist is thicker than its "standard" colleagues. This is surprising initially at the level of the lips for the habitués of the ordinary model, but it is done there.
A good harmonica, in short, with some gambling difficulties, but it is part of this type of instrument.

Three whole C major octaves
17er Peter, 20.12.2017
Thought that I unpack the harp and go. No way! So I'm basically satisfied with the instrument, but I do not understand why you have to do something with a new harp. I already played chromatic and diatonic for a couple of days, so I was even more surprised that I had some teething problems with the soloist. The reason was the hole spacing, larger than the diatonic and unlike the Chromonica. For simple hits and folk melodies a very good alternative in C major. Have not regretted the purchase in any way and like to play with the soloist!
