          Comments about Hohner 1896 Marine Band Low Tuned Harmonica:

          Good harmonica. I bought it because of the low tunning that was available. Old design and that will be the problem for some people. Read plates protrude and makes it kind of uncomfortable to play. (comparatively speaking). Real down side is that it's nailed together and you WILL have to dissamble it eventualy.Not a bad price for a low tuned harp but otherwise it would not be worth the price.
