After Matthais Hohner founded his harmonica company over 150 years ago, his products quickly rose above the competition because of his dedication to producing only high-quality instruments. Generations later, that same fundamental principle remains. Even an entry-level harmonica, such as the Old Standby, is built to a higher standard than most standard acoustic instruments of any price. Tuned to a highly musical diatonic C scale, the Old Standby is the perfect companion to anyone new to the harp or just looking for a fun way to pass time. With an Old Standby in your pocket, you'll never be without a great musical instrument again.
