Hohner Steve Baker Special

The "Steve Baker Special" (SBS) uses the same construction as the classic Marine Band 365, but the sound range is extended downwards instead of upwards. The same tuning and bending capabilities traditionally reserved for the first three holes of a diatonic harp have been extended downward over an additional octave. This allows for typical draw bend phrasings to be played over a range of 2 octaves.
Steve Baker is one of today's most influential harp players and an integral part of the modern harmonica scene. He was born and raised in London, England and now lives near Hamburg, Germany, where he first came in the late 1970s with the legendary jugband "Have Mercy". Steve has been a full-time professional for over 30 years and has earned an enviable reputation as an innovator and pioneer on this frequently under-estimated instrument.
Available is the key of C only.
