how do you find Marine bands for robustness? Back in the day when I played with my street band I used to find I blew those harps out far more than was economically viable... or it could have been youthful enthusiasm! I went over to Lee Oskars because I didn't wreck them every few weeks...I've tons of harps lying around here: Lee Oskar, Seydel, etc.,
but on the whole I much prefer the Marine Band harps these days, the De-Luxe model is a little more expensive.
I find them to be louder and far more versatile than any other make of blues harp.
Depends on what type of music I'm playing, -
I tend to pick up the Lee Oskar for Piano Man or Pop songs where there's no big bending tricks required.
But when it comes to down home blues the Marine Band harps are my weapon of choice.
Yes, you're quite right Jules, this is it. The Marine Bands don't last as long but the sound and playability are for me the deciding factor.how do you find Marine bands for robustness?

Check this page out.... Hohner Blues Blaster Harmonica MicrophoneThanks Jules,
can't find a Hohner Blues Blaster here in my neck of the swamps,
Seems like they don't make it anymore.
The Shure 520 DX does have a volume control and the 100 - 5.000 Hz sounds about right.
My new band wants me to play a lot've blues harp.
What the freak - for €129 minus my spike's special deal rebate.
The marine band harps do have a lot more "cut".
