Hohner Marine Band 1896
Key of B
No Box Included
Adam Gussow’s Notes:
- Moderate Wear
- Squeezed Cover Plates
- 3-6 Octave is sour + 4-6 blow
This Marine Band 1896 shows all the obvious signs of significant use, plus, according to Blues Harmonica Guru and Historian Joe Filisko, it is Sonny’s favorite key – B. The covers have a lovely patina from Sonny’s hands and lips. The covers have been slightly crushed by Sonny’s powerful hands. There is clear evidence of dried saliva inside the comb. This is a harp that Sonny played long and hard. A real gem.
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.)
