Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Echo Super Vamper #6-7 Key of B
Echo Super Vamper Key of B - no box
This is a highly collectable harmonica. The estate only includes a handful of Super Vampers. The Echo Super Vamper is the UK equivalent of the Marine Band. It is identical except for the stamping on the top cover. It is easy to imagine how Sonny may have played this Super Vamper as he and Brownie toured in the 1950s, 60s and 70s popularizing blues music throughout Europe.
This harmonica was played extensively by Sonny and it is in, what I am told by Joe Filsiko, Sonny's favorite key B. It has half-moon shaped tarnishing on the covers which are also slightly crushed. It is a safe bet that Sonny used this harp in quite a few of his performances. All the reeds play nicely. It is a real trophy.
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.
