Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band - Key of Bb Item #287-88
Hohner Marine Band 1896
Key of Bb
No Box Included
Adam Gussow’s Notes:
- Light/Moderate Wear
- Comb shows wear
This Hohner Marine Band 1896 in Bb shows the classic signs of use by Sonny. The covers are tarnished by his lips and hands. There is a slight amount of dried-up saliva in the comb. Since according to Adam, it is still a good playing harp, this might have been one the harps in Sonny’s gig case at the time of shortly before his passing. It looks broken in but not worn out.
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.)
