The new Sonny Terry Heritage Edition Harmonica posthumously commemorates one of the most influential artists in the blues harmonica scene.

The harmonica, a Marine Band 1896 with custom engraved cover plate and an orange/black lacquered pear wood comb, is a specially-made 10-hole diatonic in the key of C, paying homage to the original instruments upon which he created his unique style. The Sonny Terry Heritage Edition Harmonica is packaged in a beautiful vintage cardboard box. For fans, collectors and players alike, the box also contains a signature stamp, which is a replica of the stamp that blind musician Sonny Terry used to sign autographs.

The instrument is handcrafted in Trossingen, Germany – where the original Marine Band 1896 that Sonny Terry played was made.
