Marine Band 1896
The Marine band 1896 is the archetypal blues harmonica. Since being patented in 1896 it has remained almost unchanged in its materials, design, and tone.
It’s the iconic tone that you would hear from the likes of John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Little Walker, Neil Young and countless other musicians.
It is the number one choice of harmonicas for professionals, and is likely the most recognizable model of harmonica in the world.
