Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band #242-43
Marine Band 1896 #?ÿ242-43
Key of B
Adamƒ??s Gussowƒ??s Notes: ƒ??Moderate wear. 4 draw a little sharp. Nice harp. ?ÿVery good."
I think Adam pretty much nailed it on this one. ?ÿI agree 100% with everything in his notes. ?ÿIt clearly shows signs that Sonny played this harp. ?ÿThere is light tarnish on the covers and the bottom cover (top for Sonny) shows the beginnings of being crushed. The comb is clean. ?ÿThere's just a little bit of crust inside the 6 hole. ?ÿAll the reeds play freely and it is in reasonably good tune. ?ÿI don't see anything at all wrong with this harp. There is no way we will ever know but it would not surprise me if this harp was in Sonny's gig case at the end of his career. ?ÿThis harp is broken in but not spent.
This harmonica does not include the original box.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case and an individually signed Certificate of Authenticity. ?ÿIt will also include an 8"X10" glossy black and white photo suitable for framing. ?ÿThe frame will not be included.
