The legend turns 125!
January 30th, 2021 will mark the 125th anniversary of the most iconic and influential harmonica model of all time – the HOHNER Marine Band. Since 1896, it has stood for craftsmanship, quality and the spirit of HOHNER around the world, helping create the musical history of the 20th century. To mark the occasion, we are releasing a special edition replica of the instrument that shaped the music of legends like Little Walter or Sonny Terry and is still synonymous with blues harmonica today.
