THE ORIGINAL BLUES HARMONICA

The Marine Band 1896 is the archetypal blues harmonica. Almost unchanged since it was patented in 1896, this iconic instrument embodies the real deep blues like no other and is the benchmark against which all others are judged. Initially designed for European folk music, it quickly became a prominent voice of American blues of the early 20th century, played by all harmonica players of this era. It’s the soundtrack of broken hearts and dancing all night, of endless prairies and sweaty nightclubs. Like no other harmonica, the Marine Band 1896 is an invitation to express yourself in music, a key to unlock your creativity. When you discover this piece of living musical history, you won’t just play the blues. You’ll feel the blues.

Today was an exceptional customer experience at Arties music. Bought my guitar their close to two years ago. Had a issue with it and took it in. It was replaced without any of the usual haggle. Thanks Arties. Your service is exceptional and I’ll keep coming back. Highly recommend

Friendly staff and professional service, purchased a Maton Guitar recently and they gave me a great price! Love shopping at Arties!

I used the online order and pick up option for the first time. The level of communication about my order status was great and the music book actually arrived earlier than expected. The guys were busy when it was time to pick up my order yet engaged with all customers so you felt acknowledged while waiting. Really great work team, well done!
