OVERVIEW

A back-to-the-roots harmonica combined with state-of-the-art technology.

The Hohner Marine Band Deluxe Harmonica is a contemporary addition to Hohner's Marine Band legacy. Combining the features of the historical, legendary harmonica with a variety of state-of-the-art improvements, the Marine Band Deluxe produces greater volume and faster response while retaining the richness and power of the harmonica's classic sound. The deluxe Marine Band harmonica has a sealed pearwood comb plus rounded channel openings and outer corners for greater playing comfort. Assembled with 3 reedplate screws and 4 cover screws to make it airtight and easy to service.

For more than 100 years, the Marine Band harmonica has been the favorite of renowned artists like Little Walter, Paul Butterfield, and Kim Wilson. Since 1896, discerning professional harmonica players in search of an unmistakable and unique sound have played the Marine Band as their harmonica-of-choice.

About Hohner:
Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.

    Comments about Hohner Marine Band Deluxe Harmonica M2005:

    I have been playing Hohner Special 20s for about 4 years now; I enjoy the Special 20, but wanted to take a step up in the Hohner roster to try a more responsive and craftier harmonica.

    I purchased a C Marine Band Deluxe as well as a C Marine Band Crossover to test them side by side, because I have found little to no (helpful) material online to help make my choice. If you're discerning between the two, I hope this comment helps you!

    Most of my playing is waiting for trains, around campfires, in friends' apartments having little jam sessions, or in religious settings like a Mass with an acoustic band. I am not a professional, but I play every day and value a good instrument, one that can amplify my (hopefully) growing skills.

    I prefer the Marine Band Deluxe to the Crossover, though they are close. In terms of playability, both provide far more responsive reeds than the Special 20 or Marine Band 1896, playing louder, clearer, and quicker than their less-expensive friends. The bends can be pulled far deeper, as well.

    I prefer the Marine Band Deluxe, yes, for its appearance (I think the pear wood is more attractive than the bamboo), but mainly for its sound: whereas both play beautifully, the Deluxe I think has a WARMER sound than the Crossover, which sounds more metallic. Related to this, I think the Deluxe has better sounding chords than the Crossover.

    Yes, the Crossover's webpage boasts many, many quotes from professionals, while the Deluxe only has a handful of even consumer reviews, but going simply by my feel and by my ear (which is the same way I play; I'm no musical whiz like most of you), I easily prefer the Deluxe to the Crossover and will (re)build my set with these.

    (Two notes: At least for the one I purchased, the harmonica's metal plate is different than in the picture above; "Marine Band Deluxe" is all on one line. Also, I received a neat neoprene case much like the Crossover's, instead of the blue plastic box shown above.)

    A Quality Harmonica

      Comments about Hohner Marine Band Deluxe Harmonica M2005:

      This is one of Hohner's best. The covers have been improved, they screw on and are stronger and less likely to bend out of shape. The reedplates also screw onto the comb, which is still wood, but is sealed. The hole channel openings are rounded, as well as the corners. This feature makes it more comfortable to play and to handle. It is a good looking harmonica, and an improvement over the old Marine Band, which has always been a favorite of mine. The hard plastic case is attractive, but lacks the vented design of Hohner MS series harmonicas. The sound is quite good, as expected from a German Hohner. Most notes were accurately tuned on mine, with the exception of two or three, which could have received more attention at the factory. I always test mine with a chromatic tuner, and have cheaper Hohners that are more accurate. All said, I like this model quite a bit. It plays easily and has a sweet tone. I'd hate to have to spend the money for a complete set, but it is a fine instrument.
