Hohner Marine Band 1896 Classic
The Hohner Marine Band is a basic diatonic harmonica that is in the key of C. I don't believe that they make this in other keys, but I could be mistaken about this. It's a pretty thin harmonica compared to the other ones that I have and I have used, but it definitely doesn't have a thin sound. Although I don't claim to be a professional harmonica player, I have played it a bit here and there and this is definitely one of the best harmonicas that I've played before. It feels good to play and is easy to shift from note to note. It has a pretty full sound to me, but certainly sounds similar to many harmonicas out there. It's definitely great for playing blues more than anything else, as it just seems to have that sort of sound. It comes with the little case shown in the picture above, so you can keep in clean and even carry it with you if you want! I'm not really sure why they call this the 'Marine Band' harmonica, to be honest. While it isn't the cheapest harmonica out there, it's still a great place to start if you're serious about playing the harmonica since it's so easy to play. Of course you'll probably want to branch out with harmonicas in other keys, but if you just want to get your feet wet or if you want to get a really nice harmonica in the key of C, this is probably the way to go. You can certainly find harmonicas cheaper, many of them from Hohner, but you won't find too many this nice for this price. I wouldn't say that it's expensive, but most harmonicas will be cheaper for sure. For this reason it's probably best suited for the player who wants to take their sound to the next level, but is equally adequate for beginners and harmonics players on all levels.

Hohner Marine Band 1896 Classic
The morning of Christmas I found under the tree, my brothers, a small package the size of a harmonica cases! Me rushing to open there Vait a Hohner Marine Band in G!
(I spare you the details of the day, it has no interest ...)
I use it for over 6 months and I must say quite intensely. I wanted to take me to Neil Young, who frequently used this tone in his folk songs and Bob Dylan and I ended up quite well!
A beautiful stainless steel harmonica and box wood lacquered pear is what it says on the site ... I do not know what that means, but I have another mattress with plastic and the difference is obvious!
I had another Hohner series just below in the and it was not bad, but he's the best! A very brilliant, aptly and overblows for a good blues are great!
An unbeatable price / performance ratio as hand made in Germany (considering the price could easily doubt). I would do this choice with his eyes closed!

MacB's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" DESIGNED IN THE REMAINS OF OLD STEAM LOCO AMERICAN!"

Hohner Marine Band 1896 Classic
For 7 years, I have bought one, because in the end, good certe designed as the nineteenth century, but I find nothing any sound, I much prefer HOHNER CROSS HARP better one in the "high range "for the blues. Its design is well done, let him be, it exudes solidity. If it is in the single-use, one harmonica, which will hang around for a few years before he makes the soul, I think this instrument is all much in this regard.

The only negative point, a slight iron taste left in the mouth after using it can be a bit unpleasant.

Very good for blues, folk, and other style needing to have a punchy sound a bit "old school", but CROSS HARP is nicely too.
