Thread Name: Harmonica keys available in early days
Subject: RE: Harmonica keys available in early days
I bought my first Hohner Marine Band harmonica in 1958. At the time, Hohner harmonicas in the key of "C" were readily available, and Sister John Bosco's St. Rita Elementary School Harmonica Band played everything in "C." I didn't know about harmonicas being in other keys until the 1980s - and then I bought "A," "G," and "D" from a local music store that was going out of business.
