Diatonic Harmonicas

Top harps for professionals and amateurs alike! Thanks to their excellent response and great tone, diatonic harmonicas from Hohner have earned a worldwide reputation for the finest quality. These harmonicas, constructed according to the Richter system, are single note instruments and can be recognized by their undivided air channels. They are frequently referred to as “Blues Harps" and are primarily used as melody instruments in blues, rock, pop, country and folk as well as other styles. By allowing the blow and draw reed in each hole to interact, their undivided air channels permit bending and overblowing of certain notes in order to create the typical wailing blues sound as well as offering the missing chromatic notes.


HOHNER Marine Band

When Jacob HOHNER registered his new harmonica design at the US Patent Office on January 30th, 1896, he can scarcely have forseen the impact it was to have on popular music. Conceived as a simple instrument for folk songs, the Marine Band went on to play a vital role in the development not only of the blues, but also of modern folk, rock and pop music - a process which still continues today!

The Marine Band was what truly made the harmonica the people‘s instrument, played in every conceivable location from the back porch to the concert stages of the world, featured in countless hits and film soundtracks, immortalized in literature. This amazing little instrument has shaped the way most people perceive the harmonica today!
