Hohner Marine Band de Luxe “Custom SB Standard”

 

The penultimate harmonica in the Hohner Marine Band line

Traditionally used by i.a.Little Walter, Sonny Terry and Sonny Boy Williamson

 

The Luxe represents the same design with today’s technique

 

More volume, better response of the reeds, or in other words an improved version of the Hohner Marine Band Classic.

 

Reeds: 20

Reedplates:  brass 0.9 mm

Comb: sealed pearwood

Length: approx. 10 cm

 

With the Custom Hohner several parts get an extra inspection and improvements are made.

And, not unimportant, the pitch of each reed is checked, the reedopenings are "embossed" (deburred) so there is less airloss and the reeds react faster and more accurate

 

The Hohner Marine Band de Luxe gets an extra treatment; a double varnish coating on the wooden comb to make it more moisture resistant and smoother, also the rims on the front of the reedplate are neatly minimized and rounded.

At the end a small sign "Marineband"is placed on the backside of the harmonica; yes appearance does matter!

This makes playing (and looking at)  this Custom Marineband de Luxe a pleasure.

 

A Custom harmonica gives more playing comfort, more ease and pleasure of playing

 

Available keys: low D, low F, G, Ab, A, Bb, B, C, Db, D, Eb, E, F and F♯
