About MS-Series harmonicas:
The acronym 'MS' stands for Modular System, an integrated concept of Hohner's harmonica designs. MS-series harmonicas benefit
from innovations that improve their playing characteristics and also significantly facilitate maintenance and handling. All
MS-series parts (combs, reed plates, and covers) can be combined individually. Simple screw connections allow for easy assembly.
This benefit offers players the possibility to adjust the instruments to their individual requirements. For example, some
players prefer the body of one model and the cover plates of another, and so a "custom hybrid" is possible for the discerning
player. Replacement reeds are available (see item: RP565 MS Replacement Reed Plates).
Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention
to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide.
Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall.
Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their
simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.
