This reliable workhorse offers Hohner's highest standard of German quality. Featuring a 10-hole, airtight, plastic body for increased volume, an open-ended cover for sound projection, and contoured covers that are comfortable to hold, the Hohner 590 Big River harmonica really delivers the sound you seek.

The Hohner 590 Big River harmonica is an attractive and robust harp model that's a fine musical instrument for beginners, with solid volume and easy playability. The 590 Big River is also the choice of seasoned veterans and professionals, who recognize the harmonicas strong, dependable performance and German quality at an affordable price. The Hohner Big River can be called one of the best-valued harmonicas on the market.

About MS-Series harmonicas: The acronym 'MS' stands for Modular System, an integrated concept of Hohner's harmonica designs. MS-series harmonicas benefit from innovations that improve their playing characteristics and also significantly facilitate maintenance and handling. All MS-series parts (combs, reed plates, and covers) can be combined individually. Simple screw connections allow for easy assembly. This benefit offers players the possibility to adjust the instruments to their individual requirements. For example, some players prefer the body of one model and the cover plates of another, and so a "custom hybrid" is possible for the discerning player. Easy-to-install replacement reeds are available (see item: RP565 MS Replacement Reed Plates).

About Hohner: Hohner is a family company founded in 1857 in Trossingen, Germany by Matthias Hohner. Hand-made quality and close attention to detail has set Hohner apart from the beginning. A top leading brand in harmonicas, Hohner harps are distributed worldwide. Hohner harmonicas are played on the street by buskers, in intimate nightclubs, on festival stages, and even in Carnegie Hall. Despite a diverse harmonica line used in music from country to classical genres, the most famous Hohner harmonicas are their simple, 10-hole diatonics used frequently by blues, rock, country, and folk musicians.

ROOTS: A Black Heritage Art Show”

 —  —

Amador County Arts Council , 617 South CA-49 (Mother Lode Plaza), Jackson, CA 95642

During Black History Month, AmadorArts is proud to present “ROOTS: A Black Heritage Art Show”. This landmark exhibit will celebrate the contributions of Black Americans with a presentation of art and artistry by our fellow citizens. The celebration of art and culture in America recognizes the contribution of all our various citizens over the course of our history. Black History Month is an established, nationally recognized observance that honors the lives, experiences, and history of Blacks in America. For almost 50 years, it has reminded us of the extraordinary men and women who achieved incredible things often in the face of unimaginable injustice and inequality. All too often the contributions of Black Americans, as well as those of women and other marginalized groups, have been forgotten or purposely relegated into the obscurity of a lost history amid bigotry and discrimination. Since Africans arrived on the shores of North America some 400 years ago, they have made significant contributions to the American motif in various fields including art, music, science, politics, technology, geographic exploration and industry. Public reception 01/31/2020, free and open from 4-7pm. This reception will include music, snacks, and performance artists

"I Never Feel As Truly Alive As When I Play Music."

For generations, Hohner has dedicated everything towards music for a simple reason: Music is a way of life. In fact, you could say it’s the best way of life. People who aren’t into music simply don’t know what they’re missing. Of course we would say that, wouldn’t we? But like countless musicians all over the world, from beginner to professional, we feel so strongly about music that we want to help open the door to this experience to everyone. With instruments designed to convey the joy and the passion which inspires everybody to improve their skills and develop further.

We wouldn’t be where we are now, as world market leader for harmonicas and accordions, if it wasn’t for our passion and our shared commitment to our craft and the traditions which it has inspired. This is a defining element of the Hohner sound, a key to unlock the world of music. Our mission is to pass this passion on to you, with perfectly crafted instruments which enable you to truly Enjoy music.
