OVERVIEW

Exceptional sound and a sealed bamboo comb make it the professional player's go-to harp.

With the Marine Band Crossover Harmonica, Hohner has expanded the Marine Band series to introduce a top-of-the-line, professional-quality harmonica for discerning musicians who play modern blues, rock, jazz, soul, or funk.

The Marine Band Crossover Harmonica's revolutionary laminated-bamboo comb is completely sealed, making it water repellent and exceptionally stable. In combination with the screw-together assembly, the Marine Band Crossover is extremely airtight, with fast, even response and a raspy, powerful sound that's exceptionally well-suited to amplified playing as well as acoustic styles.

The crossover Marine Band harmonica's modern-compromise tuning is ideal for single-note playing in different positions as well as easy note bending for contemporary blues, rock, jazz, soul, and funk, while still ensuring a full chord sound. The Marine Band Crossover is an optimal addition to the Marine Band harmonica series. The Marine Band Crossover uses the same reedplates as Hohner's Marine Band Deluxe harmonica for interchangeability.

Due to the Marine Band Crossover's compromise tuning, chord playing is smooth and full and the single notes also play nicely in-tune, so playing in positions other then 1st and 2nd is not a problem for intonation. Because of the airtight construction (a sealed comb and screws instead of nails to attach the reedplates), bending, overblows, and overdraws are much easier then on most other diatonic harps. This is great news for beginners learning to bend and speedsters and overblowers out there looking for an airtight harmonica that can keep up with their playing.

Choose your desired key!

Testimonials about Hohner's Marine Band Crossover:

Dave Gage: "One of the best-sounding and playing diatonic harmonicas out-of-the-box. Great for players of all levels and musical styles and worth the extra penny for the increased quality and playability. The sound is bright, but not overly bright. It plays as well as expensive, customized harmonicas."

Joe Filisko: "This Crossover is an exceptional harmonica. I have to say that this is without any doubt the best playing out-of-the-box harmonica that I've ever had my hands on. It's a notable, substantial upgrade to the diatonics I have played. It played very well. That's a big deal, because I trusted it. The tuning is superb; responsiveness is excellent. It's very responsive. The bends are right there."

Steve Baker: "As a Marine Band player for 40 years I really love the Crossover and am proud to have been closely involved in its development from the very beginning. The first time I played the very first prototype with a bamboo comb I was blown away by the sound, volume, response and playing feel and thought 'this is it!' I own a lot of custom harps, but this is what I use on stage because it's tough, reliable, and both plays and sounds great."

Jerry Portnoy: "The Marine Band Crossover is a terrific harp in every aspect: beautiful, sealed bamboo comb; strong, attractive cover plates and; most importantly, well tuned with good volume and projection; plus smooth, responsive playability from bottom to top. It also comes in a handy and unique zippered case. I've made it my personal harp of choice. Another winner from Hohner!"

Phil Wiggins: "It's beautiful. It is nice right out of the box. Great tone. Great feel. I'm loving it."

Dennis Gruenling: "I like the comb a lot: how it felt, how it responded, how it sounded. The feel and response is closer to a custom Marine Band."

R.J. Mischo: "The Crossover is a great instrument! I've been playing professionally since 1979 and have tried all the models and this is the best out-of-the-box harp yet."

David Barrett: "The Crossover is Hohner's best harmonica to date . . . great feel, playability, and most importantly, great sound! For those who want the great sound of our forefathers but the playability of a modern-designed harmonica, put Hohner's Crossover harmonica at the top of your shopping list."

James Conway: "I needed a five overblow and it was there. To get a rack-mounted, five overblow right out of the box-I was happy with that."

The first thing that you notice when you pick this harmonica up is the way it feels in your hands. All the edges are rounded off for a smooth feeling, which also makes it very comfortable on your mouth when playing. It looks like it would be beard and mustache friendly, but I can't attest to that. The comb is laminated and sealed wood, and the covers seem to be much stronger than a regular Marine Band, which are easily crushed. It is put together with screws, so maintenance and cleaning no longer require major surgery. The sound is very sweet and pure, and easy to play. If I were asked for suggestions to improve it, I would indicate the key on the right end of the harmonica so that it is visible without having to squint to see the stamped key on the top cover plate. Also, it comes in a fabric case. The case is well designed, but I think that Hohner's hard plastic vented cases that are supplied with most of their other models are much more practical. At this price point, I would like to see a more substantial case. Which brings me to the third point, the price! I realize that harmonicas are no longer at yesterday's prices, but I know that I won't be purchasing a whole stable of Crossovers, no matter how nice they are. If harmonica were my only instrument, maybe, but I play guitar and sing , and accompany myself with the harmonica in a neck rack. Hohner's other German models have always been very satisfactory, and it comes down to affordability. But I do really like this harmonica. In my opinion, it is right up there with the Marine Band Deluxe.

I bought 5 Crossover harmonicas and I've been playing them for about 5 or 6 months now. I'm impressed with the tone these harps have and I like the bottom area of the harp as it's open and allows the sound to really flow.My problem is that 2 of the 5 harps I bought have blown a reed already. Not an ideal thing when these harps cost twice as much as most others.I'm not going to purchase any more of them. I'll stick to the Special 20's for half the price and longer shelf life.

    Comments about Hohner Marine Band Crossover Harmonica M2009:

    As a strong novice/potential intermediate player, those more experienced can take the following at face value. I started with the highly recommended Special 20, which I liked, but went through fairly quickly, largely, I'm sure, due to inexperience. That said, picking up a Crossover, suddenly everything was just that much easier. It feels, to coin perhaps a new term, 'cooperative.' Easier to bend, smoother; it was suddenly far easier to find my way up and down the register.

    I also tried Lee Oskars, the new Rocket, and a Suzuki ProMaster (heavy, clunky), but disliked the wider holes and brighter tones/volume. The Crossovers I have are all operating just fine. I plan on replacing all my keys with Crossovers. Great harp.

      D harmonicas, to play in A in the cross (2nd) position, have always been a problem. Most types sound flat. This one has the tuning and manufacturing quality to solve the problem. Highly recommended.

            Comments about Hohner Marine Band Crossover Harmonica M2009:

            This is a true improvement on a standard Marine Band. It feels better to play. I can bend better and have better breath contreol with it. I have never played a professionally set up harp so I can't compare, but it is better set up out of the box than anything I have played which includes most brands and models of harps in the mid- price range as well as the Suzuki promaster.

                Becoming my favorite harp for fast single note melodies such as fiddle tunes. Haven't been using the Crossovers long so I am unclear as to the durability of the reeds.

                Poor sound & low volume from hole 2 blow and draw. It's the same problem every other harp I get from Hohner.

                      I have three MB crossovers. In only the F key I am having draw problems in the upper register. I believe it is a quality control problem on with this harp alone. Too bad there is a no return policy because I feel this harp should be replaced by Hohner.

                          I bought two Crossovers one in F and one in Bb. The Bb harp is fine but No 8 hole does not draw on F harp without extreme effort. I don't bend notes and I don't believe I abused the harp in any way. Because of this the harp is barely usable. No doubt this is isolated case. I would not advise against anyone ordering a Crossover in F, so take my "No" for what it's worth.

                            Got this harp to replace a Hohner Blues harp, and the upgrade is amazing, easy to do bends and any other fancy harmonica thing you might want to do. Sometimes it can be a little hard to keep a straight note, but if anything that makes you have to play better. The sound is very responsive, so its also to whisper out notes but still hear them with clarity, but when you want, and with lightening response you can be blazing out rich tones.

                            The Neoprin cases that these harps come in are great if you want to bring a few harps along but don't want them rattling around in a bag, which of the price its better to keep them clean and safe.
