I had no other idea where to post this! haha

Does anyone know what type of harmonica he uses on Subterranean Homesick Blues?

By what type i mean what key, and is it diatonic or chromatic?

If you know the brand, that's cool too, but not necessary.


I'm pretty sure the song is in A, but not positive.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

I'm sure it's diatonic. If the song is in Aminor, he's either playing a C major harp, which is the relative major of Amin, or he's playing a D major harp in second position so he can hit the more bluesy notes.

It's a diatonic in D, so he can play cross-harp in A. As for brand, Bob Dylan has always used Hohners.


Specifically Marine Bands.

Except sometimes he would use an Echo Vamper or something like that.
