Hohner Echo Harp Tremolo tuned harmonica 57/120
This harmonica is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-12-13)
Price : US $20.50
A beautiful German made vintage harmonica. I am the only one who has ever played this harp and that was over 30 years ago. So my cooties are dead by now. I couldn't do it justice. I have a couple of Marine Band Hohners that suit me much better. This harmonica has a natural vibrato that is very pleasant.
This harp has 120 notes. Key of G and key of C. It is the largest and best of Hohner's Echo Harps. I found it in a European automobile that we were scrapping in the 1970s. Why it was hidden in a Fiat sports car I don't know. I would like to know the story. It was made in Germany - not in the Czech Republic like the new ones! The original box has some wear on it but bears the original price ''81.55''. I think the price was in German Marks. It has the original box and paper that wrapped the harp inside the box.
This is a very nice vintage musical instrument. No dents. No scratches. It is almost perfect.
