Hohner mini harmonica -- yes it actually plays - (a $4.95 value).
For more than 100 years, the Marine Band has been the favorite harmonica of artists like Little Walter, Paul Butterfield, Mickey Raphael, and Kim Wilson. Ever since 1896, discerning professional harmonica players in search of an unmistakable and unique sound have played the Hohner Marine Band as their instrument of choice.
The Marine Band Deluxe Harmonica combines the features of the legendary harmonica with a variety of state-of-the-art improvements, which can best be described as a modified version of the Marine Band Classic.
In comparison, the Marine Band Deluxe optimizes all the great characteristics of the original classic Marine Band in a player friendly harmonica. Hohner's goal was to offer a contemporary ten hole diatonic with the long, successful history players associate with the Marine Band legacy.
Hohner has developed state-of-the-art improvements, which include optimized handling to ensure greater volume & faster response while retaining the richness and power of the Hohner Classic Sound.
The reedplate covers have been opened up considerably in the back of the harmonica and folded in a way as to make it very sturdy and hard to bend in when grasping the harp in a playing manner. They are solid with extreme quality in this respect.
By having the reedplate cover openings further off the comb you get better sound projection, air flow over the reeds, as well as more resonance and sustain!
The covers are held on with 4 screws per cover.
