Marine Band Master

The J.A. Custom Marine Band Master Harmonica has unique features, including its own serial number. Players will enjoy the authority they have over this instrument, which is capable of loud and crispy regular notes, stable bends, and easy overbends. The cover plates have been meticulously reshaped to improve performance and player comfort.

Tuning

All my custom harmonicas are Richter tuned to 441hz with a compromised temperament. However, I can accommodate your preference for an alternate temperament or tuning. Most players are happy with my compromised temperament.
