The quintessential image of Dylan is one with his harmonica hanging from a neck holder near his lips.
Check out the picture featured on the inside cover of the presentation box by Daniel Kramer from the 1965 “Bringing it All Back Home” recording session at Columbia Recording Studio.
Now you can own one designed by the legendary harpsmith with the Bob Dylan Signature Harmonica from Hohner.
This exceptional Hohner instrument is presented in a special box with a magnetic clasp that fits both the harp and a special, molded carrying case. The case and the box feature a special eyeball/crown design created by Dylan himself.
Hohner’s collaboration with Bob Dylan naturally lead to the development of a next-generation Harmonica. “This Harmonica has an enhanced sonic versatility and produces both uncharacteristically warm tones while also achieving a brilliance or ‘brightness’ that allows musicians to more freely express themselves” stated Scott Emmerman, Director of Marketing for Hohner, Inc. “It was not easy to achieve the standard that Bob Dylan represents.
Among other things, we gold-plated the reed plate in order to achieve the specific sonic requirements” The Harmonica is appropriately named the Bob Dylan Signature Series.
