The collection features 3 products; the first being a set of seven hand-signed Marine Band harmonicas in the seven major keys, that have been played by Bob Dylan, in an ornate presentation box featuring a classic photograph of Bob Dylan taken by Daniel Kramer and a certificate of authenticity signed by the President of Hohner. Only twenty-five of these sets exist in the world and the selling price for each is $25,000.
The second product is an individual Marine Band harmonica in the key of C that has been hand-signed by Bob Dylan in an ebony presentation box with a certificate of authenticity signed by the President of Hohner. Only 100 of these exist and the selling price for each is $5,000.
The third product is the new Bob Dylan Signature model. Based on the classic Hohner Marine Band harmonica, it features a gold plated reed plate and a special select wood comb which allows this harp to produce uncharacteristically warm tones, while also achieving a brilliance or 'brightness' that will allow musicians the ability to more freely express themselves. This harmonica has custom steel cover-plates bearing Bob Dylan's stamped signature, comes with a carrying case embossed with Bob Dylan's "Eye" logo, and an outer gift box featuring an exclusive picture of Bob Dylan in the inside cover that was taken by Daniel Kramer. The approximate street price on the Bob Dylan Signature Harmonica is $99 and it will be available at music stores across the US in October.
