Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Hohner Marine Band Special 20 - Item # 121 Key of Bb
Key of Bb
Original Box Inlcuded
The Marine Band Special 20 was introduced in the 1970s when Sonny was in his prime. It is sort of a step-brother to Sonny's favorite harmonica, the Marine Band 1896. It features a plastic comb instead of a wood comb, and non-vented covers vs. vented covers. That said, there are several Special 20s in Sonny collection and it apparent that he liked them just fine. This particular harmonicas shows obvious signs of use. The covers are tarnished from Sonny's lipe sna hands. There is some rust on the covers and there is plenty of dried spit on the inside of the comb.
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.
