The Little Bit More

Sometimes you just need a little bit more to fully express how you feel. When Sonny Boy Williamson II discovered the rich, deep toned sound of the 12 hole Echo Vamper harmonica, it inspired him to record one of his best known pieces, Bye Bye Bird, dedicated to the great Charlie Parker.

Now known as the Marine Band 364/24, very little has changed since Sonny Boy first played this classic harpexcept the engraving on the top cover and the color of the comb.You always felt there was something missing from your perfect blues tune?
