Following in the footsteps of the popular Bob Dylan and Steven Tyler Signature Series, Hohner Inc. announces the release of the John Lennon IMAGINE Signature Series harmonica. Featuring brilliant white cover-plates, stylish white packaging, and a clear acrylic comb, the ‘IMAGINE’ harmonica will pay tribute to the legacy of John Lennon, one of the greatest musicians and composers of the 20th century. John Lennon began playing the harmonica when he was a child in Liverpool and was greatly influenced in the 1960’s by American blues music. His playing on #1 hit songs by the “Fab Four” like “Love Me Do’, “From Me to You”, “Please Please Me”, and “I Should Have Known Better” inspired a whole new generation of harmonicas players.
“Hand-made in Trossingen, Germany, this premium harp is perfect for any collector, fan, or serious harmonica player” commented Scott Emmerman, Director of Marketing and Sales. “Hohner is proud to celebrate John Lennon’s spirit of creativity which continues to inspire musical and popular culture”, he added.
The 592JLS John Lennon Series harmonica debuted at the 2012 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA and will be available through select Hohner dealers beginning in April, 2012.
