The Hohner company and Bob Dylan are proud to unveil the Bob Dylan Signature Series Collection of hand-signed and played harmonicas celebrating the legacy and accomplishments of both Bob Dylan and Hohner. Morrison Hotel Gallery is pleased to be able to offer a limited edition of these individual harmonicas, of which only one hundred (100) are in existence.
This single Marine Band key of C harmonica is hand-signed by Bob Dylan and displayed in a handcrafted inlaid ebony box with a "Record of Authenticity" certificate (signed by the President of Hohner inc.) secured inside the box lid. The instrument features gold-plated red plates, custom cover plates bearing Bob Dylan's signature and carrying case embossed with Bob Dylan's personal "Eye" logo.
This new harp is designed to produce a brilliant or "bright" sound, which, when combined with the warm tone of a wooden comb, creates greater sonic versatility allowing artists such as Bob Dylan to more easily express themselves.
