Hi Everyone- I'm looking for an appraiser to certify my vintage echo bell tremolo harmonica, made in the 1920's or 30's. It's been in the family for generations and need to find a good home for it since times have become so tough. I'm looking at as sort of an ace in the hole, left by relatives, to use when in dire need.... sadly. Any info or connect on this harp would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, Ozdan4.

Welcome to the Harmonica Club.

We need more information about your Hohner Echo Bell harmonica, to make an accurate appraisal. If you post a picture or pictures, we will be able to give more information.

Go to this e-mail for more information:

hcrain@harleysharps.com

The monetary value of your harmonica depends on it's condition, relative scarcity, and size.

Generally, the more reeds a harmonica has, the more valuable it is for performers. The more scarce it is, the more valuable it is for collectors.

The monetary value is whatever the seller and buyer agree is a reasonable price.

You will never make a fortune selling used harmonicas.

On your Echo Bell tremolo harmonica:

How many pairs of double vertical holes does it have on the mouthpiece?

How many bells are attached to the top cover?

Is it a re-issue, or an original tremolo with bells?

Does it have a mouthpiece on only one side, or on 2 sides?

What printing is written on the covers?

Happy Holidays

John Broecker
