Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Old Standby #118-19 Key of C
Item # 118-19
Hohner Old Standby
Original Box Included
Although this harmonica was part of Sonny's collection at the time of his passing, it does not appear that it has been played. It looks new and unused. For some folks, the thought of owning and perhaps playing a harp that was used extensively by Sonny has a strong appeal. That is certainly understandable. It is also understandable if someone would prefer a harmonica that is cleaner and less used - for sanitary reasons. If you are this person, then this harp would be a very good choice for you. It is essentially a New Old Stock Hohner Old Standby. Hohner has a long history of repackaging the comb and reed plates used on their best-selling harmonica the Marine Band 1896 but with different covers. The Blues Harp and the Old Standby are prime examples of this. Hohner marketed hundreds of commemorative harmonicas using the Marine Band comb and reed plates but with different covers.
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.
