Pricing & Descriptions

Custom Marine Band & Special 20 harmonicas

You may order harps described on this page, by letting me know what you want and joining the wait list. I don’t require a deposit, placing an order implies that you’ll pay when it’s ready. I’ll provide the harp. If you don’t pay (or at least make arrangements) when I communicate that your order is finished, your order will be cancelled and I won’t trust you in the future.
