Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band - Key of B Item #260-61
Hohner Marine Band 1896
Key of B
No Box Included
Adam Gussow’s Notes:
- Moderate Wear
- Clean Comb
- 1-4 blow octave a little sour
This Marine Band 1896 shows signs of moderate use. It is in the key of B, which, according to Blues Harmonica Guru and Harmonica Historian Joe Filisko, was Sonny’s favorite key. The covers are tarnished from Sonny’s hands and lips. There is a tiny bit of rust on the covers. There is very little, if any, dried saliva inside the comb and the covers are nice and straight. Overall, the harmonica is in very good condition considering it is probably close to 50 years old and hasn’t been played in nearly 40 years.
In addition to the actual estate harmonica, all purchases will also include the following:
- A Certificate of Authenticity from the Sonny Terry Estate LLC.
- An attractive Shadow Box Display Case with a brief Biography of Sonny with which to display your estate harmonica.
- A stock black and white photo of either Sonny alone or Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee – suitable for framing. These photos were provided by Hohner and were the photos that Sonny might hand out at performances. (Picture frame not included.)
