Price : US $91.01
Beautiful German made antique Hohner 'Up-to Date' Goliath has Hohner STAR trademark and original wood box. Both harmonica and box are in great condition!
That STAR in the trademark means a lot to the harmonica collector. It proves that this harmonica is a genuine antique Hohner harmonica! The STAR trademark was the standard for all Hohner harmonicas before the Nazi take-over of Germany just before WWII. The Hohner company discontinued it's use fearing that the Nazi government would think it was the Jewish symbol, the Star of David.
Many harmonica buffs today mistakenly refer to it as 'The Star of David' trademark, but, legend has it that the six points of the STAR actually represented Hohner's six children!
The Hohner Goliath is one of Hohner's finest standard harmonicas. It boasts 24 holes and 48 reeds, brass of course, and is a huge 7.5' in length. Like most older harmonicas, it has a wooden comb that generates great tone and volume.
This Goliath has no defects in either comb or cover plates. It plays very well, and can be used for playing, and/or display. Seldom do antiques in the fine condition of this one go up for auction on eBay, so don't let it get away!
Also includes a free PDF File copy of my Harmonica Resource Manual. This is a wonderful tool for all harmonica enthusiast!.
I only ship VIA USPS Priority Mail Service with free tracking. I never use Parcel Post, or other low priced alternatives! It's more expensive, but faster and much more dependable!
