Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band # 176-77 Key of A
Marine Band 1896
Key of A
Original Box Included
Adam Gussow's Notes: "10 draw is out. Sour 123 chord. Fair."
This harp shows less sign of wear that many of the others. It has a tiny bit of rust on the covers. the brass is tarnished at the front of the reed plates and there is some dried up mouth juices in the comb. Adam says the 10 draw is out, but it's just stuck. Adam's rating of "fair" is with regard to the playability of the harp. Maybe it is out of tune because Sonny played it too hard or maybe it is in good physical condition because he didn't play it very much because it is out of tune. Hard to say.
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.
