When the Marine Band was first introduced to the American market in 1896, no one could have foreseen the lasting impact this instrument would have on the future of popular music. The affordable price and small size made it the perfect travelling companion, while the unique wailing sound of note bending opened up a whole new world of creative expression to the player.

This was the starting point of our Marine Band Series, which has gone on to play a key role in unleashing the raw emotion of the blues, the free spirit of country or the energy of rock ’n’ roll. From the classic 1896 to the modern Crossover, the Marine Band Series offers a range of genre-defining instruments which are the choice for countless leading harmonica artists today.

The Marine Band 1896 is the archetypal blues harmonica. Almost unchanged since it was patented in 1896, this iconic instrument embodies the real deep blues like no other and is the benchmark against which all others are judged.

All Marine Band models are made in Germany.
