John is a harmonica repairer and customiser. Following years of experience as a toolmaker John moved into repairing musical instruments, initially for woodwind instruments, before tapping into a rich vein of work repairing harmonicas. As well as many private clients, he now does repair work for the big three manufacturers.
This has led to John now making quite possibly the only hand-made harmonica in the world today, under the name The Great British Harmonica company.
