The Thunderbird is the latest addition to the legendary HOHNER Marine Band range and features the innovative laminated bamboo comb (patented) used in the Marine Band Crossover.

It is tuned one octave deeper than standard harmonica tuning to produce the meanest, fattest low-pitched sound around!

Named for the powerful rumbling and musical qualities of its sound, the Thunderbird is also named in tribute to Little Walter Jacobs, whose instrumental Thunderbird was one of many examples where he redefined the very landscape of the harmonica, and the possibilities of innovation on the harmonica.

The Thunderbird is also an homage to a modern day master of deep soul and innovation, Kim Wilson, whose work leading The Fabulous Thunderbirds redefined how blues, rock and soul can be melded together, and whose work with many blues masters, including Muddy Waters, puts him firmly in the pantheon of blues harmonica legends.

• Available in 9 keys (LF, LE, LEb, LD, LC, LBb, LA, LG, LLF).
• Special new reed profiles for fast response and high volume even at extremely low pitch.
• Conical lower cover design prevents reed rattle.
• Triple-coated laminated bamboo comb (patented), an innovative renewable natural material.
• Covers and reed plates fitted with Philips head screws permit easy assembly and disassembly and facilitate maintenance.
• Channel openings and reed plate edges rounded off for greater playing comfort.
• Sturdy neoprene zipper case allows moisture to evaporate while keeping dust out.
