Ready-to-Go Pre-War Marine Band 1896 in E
Pear Wood Comb
Stock Covers


Featured in this listing is a Hohner Pre-War Marine Band 1896 Harmonica, in the Key of E, with a Pear Wood Comb and Stock Covers.  It is tuned to 19-Limit Just Intonation @ A=442 Hz. 

This vintage harmonica has been fully restored and is ready to play.  The nails have been skillfully replaced with screws for easy assembly and maintenance.  If the original pear wood comb has been retained, it has been flat sanded and sealed.   The tips of the tines have been coated with a dollop of Liquid Glass to make them slick and smooth.  The edges of the combs have been treated with a thin coat of polyurethane to enhance the beauty.

This harmonica is set up with our Standard Blues Set-up.  Our Standard Blues Set-up is the harmonica of choice for most players.  These harps are airtight, responsive, in tune, very comfortable in your hands and on your lips and tongue.  Although we don't promote them as "Overblow Harps", it very easy to Overblow the 4, 5 and 6 on these harps (assuming you know how to overblow). 

If you want a full-blown custom harp that can be played chromatically by use of Overblows and Overdraws, we can accommodate you.  This will require an extensive amount of additional reed work and customization. Consequently, there is an additional charge to produce such a harmonica and it will take additional time to prepare the harmonica, which will delay the shipping time by about a month.  If you want the additional customization on this harmonica, just click on the radio button for Upgrades that says, “Please upgrade my harmonica to an Overblow/Overdraw harp. (Additional $50 charge.)
