Dave Gage Review: Not unlike the Hohner Marine Band
the 1847 Classic is one of the best sounding and playing
diatonic harmonicas out of the box. Great for players of
all levels and music styles and worth the extra money for
the increased quality and playability. The sound is not
as bright as the Hohner Crossover (link below), but
instead has a nice, even mid-range kind of sound, it's
loud and smooth. It is completely manufactured
in Germany and plays as well as expensive,
As advertised, the stainless steel reeds may
last 4 to 5 times longer than standard brass reeds. But,
this may depend upon the individual player and their
playing technique. I've gotten mixed reviews on this
aspect of the harmonica. Of
course you pay more initially for this harmonica, but
because the stainless steel reeds last so long, one of
these would likely match the life of two to three
standard brass reed diatonics. This and the
Crossover are my 2 favorite diatonics and recommended for
any one serious about their harmonica playing.
