These harps are wonderful. There's a reason they've been being made since 1896. Sound good, bend easy, etc. Everything you look for in a good harp. The value of buying this case, which comes in the 5 basic keys (natural keys, except for B and F), is great. The only reason I give it a 4.5 is because it went on sale about 2 days after I ordered it. These are top notch harps!

I though MB 1896 harmonicas were supposed to be high-end but these are LOUSY!! No bettger or even worse than the cheaper Hohner Blues Band, Piedmont Blues, and the Swan harmonicas I had. Inconsistent sound or NO SOUND on 8. 9, or 10 hole, blow flat inconsistently, etc.

The best harps

Comments about Hohner Case of Marine Bands Harmonica 5-Pack:

I am a somewhat experienced harmonica player. These harps are fantastic. In tune perfectly, very responsive. I played a gig last night with them and they sounded great through the microphone. Thanks musiciansfriend for the fantastic service and speedy delivery.

                    I love my harmonics and I love to play them. I caught onto the harmonica very quickly, but I atill need lessons. If Musicians Friend has DVD lessons on harmonica, I would like to know. Thank you.

                      Every once in a while a new product comes around that turns the music business on its ear, I'm sure that Hohner did just that when these piggies hit market over a century ago. Today, you probably won't be turning the music business on its ear however, if you learn what you're doing (via youtube perhaps) you will certainly amaze some innocent standers by.

                                      Although this product took mooooonths to arrive, the quality was as-expected when it arrived.
                                      It literally took almost 4 months before I received these harmonicas due to a delay in the order from Musician's Friends' suppliers. The quality was worth the wait and they have such a raw, raspy, but crisp sound.

                                      As expected - Great choice!!
