The Hohner Student II piano accordion is a classic small accordion, perfect for folk sessions where you need to play in a range of keys not easily available on a melodeon. This instrument has a wonderfully bright sound, with German made reeds. To make it super versatile it has thirdless bass chords (so the C chord sounds a C and G, which is a perfect 5th – the E does not sound). This enables the player to accompany tunes in major and minor keys, with a nice folky ‘drone’ effect. It has 12 basses (Bb,F,C,G,D,A). It has a medium to wet tremolo.
