Product Description

Hohner Marine Band 1896 Classic

The 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.

  • Original cover design from 1896 ensures the classic blues sound

  • Reeds: 20 Brass
  • Reed Plates: 0.9mm brass
  • Comb: Pearwood, brown
  • Mouthpiece: pearwood lacquered

  • Made in Germany
  • Check the Key for additional tuning options: Natural Minor & Harmonic Minor
