Comments about Hohner Case of Marine Bands Harmonica 5-Pack:

Works fine lasts a long time won't rust won't bust its a product you can trust.

If I wanted to expand the set to include all the notes the case won't hold them. It's like buying hot dogs and rolls. Buy one package of rolls and one package of hot dogs and you are don't have a matching number of rolls and hot dogs.

Hohner 1896 Marine Band is the classic harmonica.

      Comments about Hohner Case of Marine Bands Harmonica 5-Pack:

      These are Hohner 1896 Marine Band harmonicas with a pear wood comb. Marine Bands (1896 and Crossovers) sound the best to me. 1896's have been used on countless recordings by some of the most renown musicians. Crossovers really are better--but also cost more.

      All five G A C D E work fine our of the boxI did not have to gap any of them. This is good because Marine Bands are held together with nails, and are not as easy to take down and reconstruct as a Special 20 or Crossover. I always replace nails with screws when i service mine. The holes and reeds matched adequately.

      Many musicians complain that draws are difficult on 1896 Marine Bands. Granted, 2 hole draws are difficult for many players, and in particular in lower keys. When I have trouble I just check my embrochure and focus on good fundamentals. This works for me if the reeds are gapped correctly. That said, all of these harmonicas drew fine, and I did not have to gap any of them.

      I started on an 1896 i my teens. As many point out, 1896 Marine Bands are not as easy to play as a plastic combed harmonicas like the Special 20.

      With plastic, the holes are fully enclosed on 4 sides. The holes have a left side, right side, top and bottom. The comb sticks out past the reed plates and the covers. As a result, your mouth only contacts the covers and plastic on the comb. This makes plastic easier to play with worse embrochure.

      With wood, the comb is a little recessed and there is no top or bottom, just the reed plates. When playing, your mouth will contact wood, the reed plate and covers.

      Because of this difference, your embrochure must be good to play wood well--otherwise wood will be airy and feel leaky. I still prefer wood for sound and feel. I do not soak mine, but I do xarwfully sand the front reedplate edges with 400 grit to take off the sharp edge. This makes the harmonica a lot more comfortable to play hard.

      The case holds 7 harps and is great. I will use it.

                I love my harmonics and I love to play them. I caught onto the harmonica very quickly, but I atill need lessons. If Musicians Friend has DVD lessons on harmonica, I would like to know. Thank you.
