2 reviews for Hohner Marine Band Deluxe Harmonica

  1. Luna Lauritsen

    The most popular models are either single-sided or double-sided Echo harps, but the single-sided ones can be combined into quadruple or sextuple ‘corncob’ setups, with a different key on each row. The Chord Harmonica consists of two harmonicas hinged together. Together, they are capable of playing 48 chords. They are 23 inches long, and each chord takes up 4 holes. The chord harmonica is used to provide chordal and rhythmic backing in an ensemble, much as rhythm guitar might do. Jerry Murad’s Harmonicat’s 1947 “Peg O’ My Heart” was played on a Chord, with a cleverly arranged sequence of chords that produced the impression of a melody. Hohner’s main Chord is known as the Hohner 48, because it plays 48 chords. Hohner from the 19 to the late 19 also produced the Polyphonia No. 8, which played 36 blow-only chords, in three rows. The concept failed and is often frowned upon by professional 48 chord players.

    The go to harp for players such as Jerry Portnoy and Kim Wilson, although this iant publicised as the Marine Band Deluxe isn’t marketed in the US. The instrument is basically a Marine Band with Marine band Just intonation with improvements such as a sealed comb, screws instead of nails, open covers and comes with a semi solid zipper case. If you’re looking for a traditional blues harp to play Muddy, Walter (s), Sonny Terry Ted and don’t customise, this is it. I’m working my way through every key to fill my harp case.
