Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band # 134-35
Marine Band 1896 #?ÿ134-35
Key of A
Adam Gussow's Notes: "1 Blow is almost dead. 2 blow is sticky. 123 draw chords are out of tune. Fair."
This harp shows signs of wear but is not as beat up as some of the others in the collection. I tested the reeds and Adam's comments not withstanding, the reeds are not broken, just likely stuck from dried mouth juices. I have pledged not to aleter the state of these harmonicas unless otherwise directed to do so by the buyer. If you are interested in playing this harp I don't think it would be difficlut to free up the 2 and 8 blow reeds without damaging the authenticity of the harp. Adam's rating of "fair" applies to the playability of the harp since that was his priamry focus. Physically, the harp is in very good condition.
This harmonica includes the original box.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case, a framed 8X10 glossy black and white photo of Sonny and an individually signed Certificate of Authenticity.
