Pre-War Mouse Ear Marine Band in C - Original Pear Wood Comb
This is a pre-war Mouse Ear Marine Band in the key of C. ?ÿIt is in spectacular?ÿcondition. ?ÿThe original pear wood comb has been flat sanded and sealed.?ÿ All the nails have been replaced with screws. ?ÿThe draw plate has been flat sanded to create an airtight seal with the comb. The reeds have all been gapped and straightened for maximum response. It is tuned to the original?ÿMarine Band tuning, which is 7-Limit Just Intonation?ÿ@ A442. ?ÿThe Mouse Ear design was changed in the early 1930's so we can confidently date this harmonica from some time in the 20's to very early 30's, making it a 90 year old harmonica. This is a great playing harp. ?ÿIt is not meant to be a show piece. ?ÿIt belongs in your gig case and needs to be played. ?ÿDon't worry about playing it. ?ÿIf it ever needs service or repair, just look me up.
