Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Hohner's Echo Tremelo - # 23 Key of C & G
Hohner Echo Tremelo - Bell Metal Reeds
Key of C - G
Original Box Not Included
This is the only Echo Tremelo in Sonny's collection. It is a double sided tremelo with the key of C on one side and the key of G on the other. I have seen lots of these harmonicas over the years and it is easy to tell when they have been played extensively. The paint or finish is worn off the front of the comb which exposes the wood comb. I don't know how much Sonny's played the tremelo harp compared to the diatonics, but when he did, he played this one. The covers have a nice patina from his hands and lips. Both covers are slightly crushed on the treble end of the harmonica which has forced the cover to overlap the reed plates slightly. The harmonica is still playable but I would say this is a show piece more than a harp you want to play.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case, and will include an 8X10 glossy black and white photo of Sonny - suitable for framing. An individually signed Certificate of Authenticity and Bill of Sale will also be included.
