I am Marine Band!
Joe Filisko

I have played Hohners since I bought my first Marine Band back in 1969. I've tried many different brands of harmonicas, but for me Hohner has always been the best. 
Howard Levy

I’ve been playing harmonica for more than sixteen years, and I have tested so many brands and custom harps. But I haven’t found anyhing like HOHNER. I have tried every Hohner harmonica, but my favorite one as a blues instrument is the Marine Band.
Victor Puertas


The Hohner Marine Band Harmonica is my voice in the Blues. No other instrument has given me so much, and no other brand has performed so well for me. 
David Barrett

I have tried all the Hohner diatonic harp models and I find that Marine band works for me just the way I needed to. It's easy to play it and it has a soft but rich sound. For me, it is the nearest to the perfect diatonic model. And yes, it has got that old blues mojo to...:)

I've been using the Hohner Marine Band Harmonica for 40 years. It's one of the very few products where a professional like me will choose to use exactly the same instrument he began with.
