Customer Only Return Policy

Health and sanitary regulations prohibit the return of mouth blown instruments such as harmonicas and melodicas to the place of purchase for warranty, exchange or credit.  Any customer owned harmonica or melodica needing warranty service, replacement or reconditioning should be sent directly by the instrument owner to the Hohner Service Center.  Return instructions and service options are located in the SERVICE section of Hohner’s website at www.hohnerusa.com.

Harmonicas must not be removed from the original packaging until after consumer purchase.  Once a harmonica is removed from the original packaging it is considered property of the purchaser.  Purchased or used harmonicas sent to Hohner by retailers, dealers or distributors will be returned to sender in the condition received.

The more you play, the more your harmonica wears out.  Like all instruments, your harmonica will need routine tuning and maintenance, such as cleaning a slide or replacing a valve.  There is no such thing as a maintenance free harmonica.

-- All harmonica reed materials on the market naturally develop signs of fatigue and eventually fracture.

-- Advanced playing techniques such as high-powered bending or tongue vibrato often increase the rate of reed fatigue.

-- Fatigued and fractured reeds are replaceable. This type of maintenance is similar to changing guitar strings. Almost anyone can learn how and it is both fun and satisfying!
