Hohner Crossover the best in Class?

I use Meriane band, blues ,Sp 20s and know Crossovers.Some Reason the
20s play bullet proof live love the new Crossovers though. What’s your preference?

I was closely involved in the development of the Crossover, so I can’t claim to be impartial, but I love it. In terms of sound, playability and ease of servicing, it’s hard to beat. I’m also a big fan of the Marine Band Deluxe and use the two models interchangeably. The standard Marine Band 1896 is a great harmonica too and the comb is now sealed, so it isn’t as prone to swelling as it was in earlier times. I don’t play them as much as Deluxe & Crossover, because the screw together assembly of these models makes them much more service friendly and I prefer the slightly rounded channel openings. The Special 20 is as you say a workhorse and very comfortable to play.

Hi, The Crossovers are great! But if you like the Special 20 harmonica be sure to check out the Rockets as apart from a great name, they are really nice to hold and play with a superior comb to the Special 20 in my opinion.

Hi Tony, the comb design of the Rocket series is indeed killer, all external surfaces are rounded and the larger channel openings help make them louder.
