Vintage Hohner PreWar Marine Band 1896 Key C Harmonica
This harmonica is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-05-14)
Price : US $37.00
Auction for One (1) Pre-War M. Hohner Harmonica Marine Band 1896 Key of C, with box, also marked ''C'' for key.
Affectionately known as the ''Mickey Mouse'' model due to the early style ''mouse ear'' tabs on the cover plates. All reeds in good shape, and notes play as designed, no buzzes, rattles, etc. I do not have a tuner and do not tune my own harps so cannot confirm ''perfect'' tuning....it sounds right to my ear. If it needs anything my best estimate is it would just be a touch-up. Includes Matching Prewar Box with ''C'' Key siganture on back. Box has some scotch tape around edges pf top and on back at ''hinge'' to protect paper. Sorry for the photos, the covers shine and create glare. The finish on the face of wood comb does have wear however, no problems with comb swelling. Although covers show some tarnish and wear this harp plays great!!! It really barks, bright tone and very punchy.
36 year harmonica player, please check feedback on other harps sold, there is also a key of G up for auction now. No returns on this item due to hygenie issues. Please note 362 100% positive feedback. Listing several other nice harps, to raise funds.
