Back to the roots state of the art.
For more than 100 years, the Marine Band has been the favorite harmonica of artists like Little Walter, Paul Butterfield, Mickey Raphael, and Kim Wilson. Ever since 1896, discerning professional harmonica players in search of an unmistakable and unique sound have played the Hohner Marine Band as their instrument of choice.
The new Marine Band Deluxe combines the features of the legendary harmonica with a variety of state of the art improvements that can be described best as a modified version of the Marine Band Classic. In comparison, the Marine Band Deluxe optimizes all the great characteristics of the original classic Marine Band in a customer oriented harmonica. Our goal was to offer a contemporary ten hole diatonic with the long, successful history that players associate with the Marine Band legacy.
We have developed state of the art improvements which include optimized handling to ensure greater volume and faster response while retaining the richness and power of the Hohner Classic Sound.
