This harp was played in the Sonny Terry Tribute at SPAH
This Marine Band shows visible signs of use. ?ÿThe covers are tarnished where Sonny's lips and hands connected with the harp. ?ÿThe covers are slightly crushed in the back from Sonny's squeezing it. ?ÿAt the recent SPAH Convention in San Antonio we?ÿhosted?ÿa Sonny Terry Tribute featuring Joe Filisko, Peter "Madcat" Ruth and Grant Dermody. ?ÿObviously we featured Sonny's music but we also thought it would apropos to use some of Sonnyƒ??s harmonicas.?ÿ So, even though our policy has been to leave the estate harps ƒ??as-isƒ?? when they have been offered, we thought it would be a good idea to make sure the harps used in the Tribute were in tune and playable.?ÿ So we selected a handful of the estate harps and did some minimally invasive surgery to make sure the reeds swung freely, they were gapped properly and in tune.?ÿ This Marine Band is one of the harps that was playing in the Sonny Terry Tribute at SPAH.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case, and will include an?ÿ8X10 glossy black and white photo of Sonny - suitable for framing. ?ÿAn individually signed Certificate of Authenticity and Bill of Sale will also be included.
