32 Keys availableThe Hohner Marine Band 1896 Classic harmonica is the original blues harmonica. Today it is still manufactured in much the same way as when it was first introduced in 1896. Its uniquely authentic sound has defined the role of the harmonica in the blues tradition and made it the benchmark by which all others are judged. The archetypal blues harmonica with the traditional HOHNER tuning. The Marine Band Classic is one of the few Hohner diatonics that is available in a full range of natural and harmonic minor tunings. For low tunings, we recommend the Hohner Thunderbird, which has been designed from the ground up as a low tuned harmonica, but still has similar tone and feel to the classic Marine Band. Should you wish to replace reed plates on the Marine Band Classic, we recommend upgrading to the Andrew Zajac Marine Band Conversion Kit, which replaces the stock nails with a bolted setup, and makes the process of changing reed plates significantly easier.

Great company - fast service and shipping. I'll be back!
I've purchased harmonicas from here a few times; every time it came in perfect condition. Very happy with service!
Excellent customer service! My recent purchase required a couple of alterations in details and they were very responsive about it. Despite the changes in the order, the item actually arrived earlier than expected!
The Harmonica Company History
The Harmonica Company began life in 2008 when a talented musician and music teacher, Andrew Stradling, set the business up. He was a seasoned player and highly knowledgeable about harmonicas and harmonica music. He served a network of local music students who provided him with an initial customer base. He enlisted the help of a web designer and created a great little brand and website.
Fast forward to 2017 and the business was sold to Julian Deverell, the owner of The Regency Chess Company. The business had existing warehouse space and e commerce infrastructure combined with some knowledge of music and the musical instrument industry. Julian is a keen guitar player and has a good understanding of the blues and the history of modern music. He brought in Jonathan Prestidge to run the Harmonica Company in late 2017. Jonathan is a classically trained pianist, guitar player and has a fantastic mind for music and has become an expert in the harmonica.
Today the Harmonica Company sells all the major brands as well as some niche ones. The idea of the business is to stock everything that the harmonica player could ever need. A full range of harps, accessories, and spares all of which are geared towards all levels of harmonica playing. The business enjoys good relationships with brands like Hohner, Suzuki and Seydel as well as a handful of small specialist producers. We are proud to serve the musician community globally, with our customer base being mostly concentrated in the UK and the USA. We've been honoured to supply harps to some famous names in the past and we'd be delighted to service you as a customer.
