Hohner Musikinstrumente was founded in 1857 by Matthias Hohner (originally a clock maker from Trossingen) and with only 3 staff members at the time Hohner managed to produce over 600 harmonicas in the first year. As harmonicas rose in popularity Matthias expanded his company exponentially and begun mass scale production and distribution to the United States.
In January 1896 Jacob Hohner the successor of the company patented a brand new harmonica design (Marine Band), little did he know how dramatic the impact would be on popular music. With his new 1896 harmonica being adopted by many music genre’s such as blues, rock and pop Hohner harmonicas became the most popular and first choice for musicians and aspiring musicians.
For generations, Hohner has dedicated everything towards music for a simple reason: Music is a way of life. In fact, you could say it’s the best way of life. People who aren’t into music simply don’t know what they’re missing. Of course we would say that, wouldn’t we? But like countless musicians all over the world, from beginner to professional, we feel so strongly about music that we want to help open the door to this experience to everyone. With instruments designed to convey the joy and the passion which inspires everybody to improve their skills and develop further.
