Hohner 125th Anniversary Commemorative Edition Marine Band
The legend turns 125
January 30th, 2021 will mark the 125th anniversary of the most iconic and influential harmonica model of all time – the HOHNER Marine Band. Since 1896, it has stood for craftsmanship, quality and the spirit of HOHNER around the world, helping create the musical history of the 20th century. To mark the occasion, we are releasing a special edition replica of the instrument that shaped the music of legends like Little Walter or Sonny Terry and is still synonymous with blues harmonica today.
The Marine Band’s importance on popular music throughout generations cannot be understated. With very little changes made to the original design over the years this instrument has withstood the test of time. The Marine Band has been utilized in all forms of popular music since the 19th Century.
This original style model features stainless steel coverplates with original “Mouse Ear Tabs”. The pearwood comb has been sealed and is emboldened with the original style orange and black lacquer. Its classic cardboard “case” is a simple nod to the humble beginnings of this instrument that brought millions of people the gift of music.
The Hohner production factory is still located in Trossingen; a town in Southern Germany and near the Black Forest where they have been producing harmonicas and accordions since 1857.
