I am gauging interest in some harps, thought I’d try posting them here first before I try them on ebay.
These harps are all from the late 90’s/early 2000s and have been sitting in a box for well over 15 years as I have no use for them these days. Not the greatest period for Hohner products, I know, but these are all gently used (except where noted) and seem to play fine for me—no bad combs or reeds, no beating chords or ridiculously out of tune or hard to bend notes. I did not tweak my harps back then, so the bad news is they may need a little work for those who are inclined to do this…the good news is I never did anything to them to ruin them, lol! I gave them a very rudimentary cleaning—they are indeed used harps; you’ll need to disinfect them like any used harp…but totally playable and there are some odd and discontinued keys here that may be of use to a techie or a fan of Golden Melodies and original Marine Bands.

Golden Melodies, all combs intact and cover plates are not bent:
Low E
Low F
G—comes with box, red plastic, like new
C—this one used more than others, cover plates a bit tarnished.

Marine Band 1896, all in the white plastic boxes:
E—like new
Eb—front of cover plate slightly dinged up
D nat minor—like new, not sure I ever played this one

Hohner Special 20, in gray plastic box:
Low D—cover plate slightly tarnished
F#

Hohner Marine band SBS (Steve Baker Special), comes with the vinyl button-snap cases it came with:
F
G—front of cover plate slightly dinged up

I’d like to sell them as a lot for $170 plus shipping. Or make me an offer!
I’d have to investigate shipping cost once I hear from you. I’ve never done this before, so we can talk shipping. I have a PayPal account.

I really don’t want to sell these off one by one—too much hassle— but if you are interested in say four or more of these perhaps that would work too.

I’ll throw in a Golden melody Key of B that is a good player but has the classic cracked comb that these Golden Melodies get.
