Dave Gage Review: This is indeed the classic model of all wood comb diatonics. Although never announced publicly, Hohner decided to finally seal the original pearwood combs so they no longer swell and shrink from moisture as they once did. The standard Marine Band is a great diatonic for blues, rock, and country players and players of all levels. If you prefer a Hohner diatonic harmonica with a plastic comb, be sure to take a look at the Hohner Special 20 (link below).
A common question is whether or not the wood comb makes these harmonicas sound better than plastic combed diatonics? The answer is no for the vast majority of players. 99% of the overall sound quality comes from the player's own abilities.
