The Marine Band 1896 Classic is the original blues harmonica and historically the world's most popular harmonica. Its uniquely authentic sound has defined the role of the harmonica in the blues tradition and made it the benchmark harp by which all others are judged. The pearwood comb, arched covers with side vents and traditional HOHNER tuning combine to create the legendary sound which can be heard on countless classic blues recordings from the 1920s to the present day.In the 1920s, the Marine Band harmonica was cheap and readily available in any general store, so it became the most widely distributed musical instrument in the USA at this time.
