With the Custom Hohnber Marine Band de Luxe the wooden comb is inspected and flattened where needed for the connection with the reedplates.
And, not unimportant, the pitch of each reed is checked and the reeds are set tight and just and also the reed openings are deburred.
So there is less air loss and the reeds react faster and more accurate.
A Custom harmonica has more playing comfort and more ease and pleasure of playing.
