Specialist comment:

The Marine Band Classic 1896/20 is a Hohner classic. The model has more than a century of history. It is a recognized classic in sound coloration and a remarkable design that has stood the test of practice and time. The body is made of pear, the lids have side holes, the brass plates are fastened with a large number of nails, the tongues are optimal in size - rather long and narrow, this gives them high sensitivity and mobility, a timbre with a "characteristic hoarseness". Marine Band is a recognized standard for blues sounding, but with a good imagination of the performer, it can be used in any musical context.
