Testimonials Marine Band Deluxe

In my present armory of harmonicas, the Marine Band Deluxe with its bright raspy tone and weight versus balance has become as reflected in life, a friend I can depend on. You can, too.
Mark Feltham

I just love the quick response that marine band deluxe offers, it has a great tone and volume, it`s just perfect for my playing, sometimes I do a few overblows and the response it`s just great!...
Gonzalo Araya

For years I dreamed of a series-made traditional wooden body harmonica with improved covers, assembled with screws. With the Marine Band Deluxe, this dream has finally become reality.
Steve Baker

I play Marine Band Deluxe and Marine Band Crossover. Their fast response, the great tone and wood sound make you sound big!
Victor Puertas

I can’t imagine myself playing any other kind of harmonica than Hohner. I’m using the Crossover because it gives me more volume and accuracy when I’m on stage together with the whole band and two powerful guitar players on my side. I don’t thing no other harp can give you such power, although I also use the Marine Band Deluxe. Both models produce great tone, playing acoustically or through an amplifier. In terms of the chromatic, I enjoy the Chromonica 64 and the Deluxe 48. They are long lasting instruments that keep their tuning and I’m very proud that I had become Hohner’s first endorser in South America.
