Watch out for the storm!

The Thunderbird is the latest avatar of the Marine Band line. This diatonic harmonica, which features the rolled bamboo wooden mattress (patent pending) of the Crossover series, is tuned one octave below the standard models. Developed with Joe Filisko, a world-renowned "customizer", the Thunderbird has been designed with a tapered ergonomically designed bonnet that avoids the knocking of aspired reeds, especially those of the first octave. A new profiling gives them a frank and constant answer. The box spring teeth and plate edges have been rounded for better playing comfort. This new instrument, which pays tribute to both Little Walter Jacobs and Kim Wilson of the "Fabulous Thunderbirds", is fully compatible with the Marine Band Crossover and the Marine Band Deluxe. Available in nine tones: Low Fa, Low Mi, Low E flat, Low Re, Low Do, Low B flat, Low La, Low Sol and Low low Fa (two octaves).

Characteristics

- Reed with a special new profile for a frank attack and a big volume of play, even in the lowest octaves
- New conical design of the lower cover to avoid knocking reeds in the low octave
- Triple-lacquered bamboo wood bed base (patented), an innovative material that respects the environment
- Screwed plates and covers with, respectively, three and four Philips screws to increase sealing and facilitate maintenance

- Rigid neoprene case with zipper and elastomer loop for carrying the instrument at the waist
- All parts of this harmonica are available as spare parts
- Fully compatible and interchangeable parts with Marine Band Deluxe and Marine Band Crossover
