A thirty year guitarist and composer, I took up the harmonica in 2012. The Marine Band 1896 has a long storied history and was the choice of harps from Lennon to Dylan, if one considers only the pop/rock/folk form of music this harp was applied to, and this 1896 apparently has a reputation of being the standard that sets the standard. It is not undeserved. It is quality made with solid and secured metal or nickel plates, a fine wood comb, and projects a powerful, piercing, clear, clean biting sound, slightly mechanical. But it plays fast, and hits the notes dead on. I would not buy anything less than this harp. However, while they seem to be absent from this site, The Hering 1923 Vintage Harp, with its brass, antique-style, heavier plates and wooden comb (and let's be clear--the wooden comb is, beyond debate, better than any plastic comb) has a superior rich, sonorous sound, the likes of which I have never heard from another harp, and I have played my fair share to this point. The Hering 1923 is Coltrane. The 1896 is martial music. That is THE difference, in a word. While I have an even number of both, and regret neither, the Hering 1923 is the most complete and versitile harmonica sound I have encountered. I recommend getting one. But, if not, the 1896 delivers and satisfies perfectly well, so don't waste time with the nonsense.

This is a good little harmonica but is way overpriced. It is comparable to the Suzuki Folkmaster in tune and quality except for the way it is nailed together and it is twice the price. True, you seldom have to disasemble a hormonica but you will sonner or later and for a couple of dollars more, the Hohner special 20 is easier to work on and is a little slicker design.

        I use Blues Harps and the Special Twenty made by Hohner. They're all fine instruments. But, the Marine Band is still the most reliable, most rugged, and has the clearest tone of them all.

              Marine Band harps provide the best consistent sound for Blues music. They generally last as long or longer than other models. Eventually all harps wear out and hard to find harps can always be ordered in a quick easy manner. Most music stores don't carry the High G harps. Ordering on line is the way to go.

              I love all my harmonicas and the case I purchased. Ordering them is always easy and fun and you always seem to have what I want in stock. Thanks.

                Reminds me of the old Hohner Blues Harps I played in the 1960s but with great improvements in tone. Better Harp with Higher Price. Tons of Fun.

                  It plays as advertized. It works well and has a nice case.

                    I purchased this harmonica for my 92 year old Uncle. My Uncle purchased a Hohner Pocket Pal while in Germany when he was serving in the U S Army during World War II. He still has the harmonica and it still sounds great. We have not been able to find another harmonica that sounded anything near as good as the one he bought during WWII. He still has the original box the old one came in and still plays it ( he has neuropathy in his hands and can't play his guitar or mandolin anymore) and it still sounds great but wanted another one, I purchased one for him for Father's Day! He is very happy with it and loves the sound....he plays them both every day.
