With the new Crossover, Hohner has expanded the Marine Band series to introduce a new, top-of-the-line professional quality instrument for the discerning player in modern blues, rock, jazz, soul or funk. The Low Tuned-High Tuned Crossover harps are available in several keys below the standard low key of G and above high F.
The revolutionary laminated bamboo comb (patent pending) is completely sealed, making it water repellent and exceptionally stable. In combination with the screw-together assembly the Crossover is extremely airtight, with fast, even response and a raspy, powerful sound which is exceptionally well suited to amplified playing as well as acoustic styles. The modern compromise tuning is ideal for single note playing in different positions in contemporary blues, rock, jazz, soul, funk, while still ensuring a full chord sound, making the Crossover an optimal addition to the great Marine Band range.
Testimonials about Hohner's Marine Band Crossover:
"This Crossover is an exceptional harmonica. I have to say that this is without any doubt the best playing out of the box harmonica that I've ever had my hands on and my mouth around." Joe Filisko
"It's a notable substantial upgrade to the diatonics I have played. It played very well. That's a big deal, because I trusted it. Tuning is superb. Responsiveness is excellent." Joe Filisko
"Very responsive. The tuning is fabulous. Fabulous tuning, fabulous response. The bends are right there." Joe Filisko
"These are a step up in basic quality out of the box. They are very close to customized harps that I've played." Howard Levy
"I love the playing feel of bamboo combs. The Crossover is exactly what I feel a modern Marine Band ought to be." Steve Baker
"As a Marine Band player for 40 years I really love the Crossover and am proud to have been closely involved in its development from the very beginning. The first time I played the very first prototype with a bamboo comb I was blown away by the sound, volume, response and playing feel and thought "this is it!" I own a lot of custom harps, but this is what I use on stage because it's tough, reliable and both plays and sounds great." Steve Baker
"Love the Crossover!" Mickey Raphael
"Great job on those Crossovers!!!!" Rick Estrin
"The new Marine Band Crossover is a terrific harp in every aspect: beautiful sealed bamboo comb, strong attractive cover plates and, most importantly, well tuned, with good volume and projection, and smooth responsive playability from bottom to top.
