About Hohner:
Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.

      Comments about Hohner Old Standby Harmonica:

      I own the Hohner Piedmont Blues set of 7 harps which I like a lot. But the E and F harps were hard to blow on the high notes. I am a novice and didn't want to spend a fortune for instruments. The "Old Standby" I thought would be a slight upgrade and bought two to replace my E and F. They are both worse and hard to blow for almost the entire range. Save your money.

      Old Standby


      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Hohner Old Standby Harmonica:

      I have found this to be a great Harmonica for a beginner or even a person who would just like
      to play around with a harmonica and this Hohner even tho a beginner harmonica is a reliable
      Harmonica and easy to play right out of the box.

      A Welcomed Standby


      from Honolulu, Hawaii

      Comments about Hohner Old Standby Harmonica:

      Having this Hohner Standby Harmonica is very reassuring that neither I nor my audience will be left music-less. My father played only Horner harmonicas and in his legacy, I now am a proud owner of several Horner harmonicas and this Standby is one of them!
