            ANTIQUE HARMONICA THE IRONCLAD HOHNER PRE WAR

Anyone who has played a wooden combed harmonica for any length of time will have noticed that the wood has a tendency to absorb water and swell, then it shrinks as it dries out. In 1911, the Hohner company was awarded a patent that attempted to rectify this problem a little, as well as provide a more comfortable playing surface, by making each chamber partition a little short and wrapping a strip of metal in and out of each chamber.

 An additional method was also shown where an individual strip of metal was used for each partition:

Hohner also received an American patent for the first idea in 1911, US Patent 1009903. US Patent 1009904 was granted on the same day for a metal lined comb for a double reed harmonica. These combs were used on the Hohner Ironclad, Hohner Song Band Vamper and Orchester I models. I have also seen a Gretsch harmonica (made by Hering back in the 1960s) that used a very similar idea, which they termed their ''New Protectongue Improvement''.
