What we say about the Crossover B
The Marine Band was the quintessential harmonica for over a century due to it's very high quality over that time. Now due to some modern refinement and a design made for increased durability and versatility beyond the blues, the Crossover may take the Marine Band's mantle. Furthermore the quality and volume of sound produced is among the best in the diatonic harmonica world. Its water repellant bamboo comb gives it an unrivalled projection and tone, with sustained articulation that allows single-note melodies and chords to sound clearer and fuller than on any other Hohner diatonic harmonicas thanks to its unique modern compromise tuning. This makes it ideal for jazz, folk and pop while remaining an exceptional instrument for blues players. All this combines to make the Crossover an optimal addition to the great Marine Band range and the first choice for today's professionals.
