Marine Band Brass Comb
Blue Moon Brass Combs are CNC Milled from solid Architectural Brass. They are then flat sanded, polished and buffed to a brilliant shine. A harmonica built with one of these combs is indeed a very solid instrument. We don't make a lot of claims about how comb material affects the tone of a harmonica but there is definitely something special about a brass combed harmonica. "Louder", "Brighter" and "Richer" are the words most often used to describe them. Brass, of course, is much heavier than Wood, Acrylic or Solid Surface and it gives a harmonica a very solid feel.
Our Marine Band Combs are pre-drilled to fit the Marine Band Deluxe, the Marine Band Crossover and the low-tuned Marine Band Thunderbirds. However, they can also be used to up upgrade a Classic Marine Band 1896 from the stock pear wood comb to a new custom comb. The conversion will require some hardware and some know-how. Below you will find links to a Marine Band Conversion Kit, offered on this website and a slide show providing detailed instructions about how to do the job.
Please note that this listing is for the comb only. The harmonicas pictured are for illustrative purposes only and are not included. If you are interested in purchasing a complete harmonica with one of our custom combs, please look under the Harmonicas section of this website.
