Info about Hohner HA114C Cajun accordion/melodeon. One row, four voice melodeon in the key of C. This melodeon is German made and was in excellent condition with only minor signs of usage and with its factory box. These are classic instruments, light and powerful, with four stops to mix the for reed arrangement (LMMH). Hohner now make these instruments in China and sell them from £650 plus.
(Sold) Hohner Student II piano accordion in RED. Made in Germany. This (was) in unused condition with no wear at all and with its original matching shoulder straps. This little accordion has 26 keys and twelve basses, which in practice means bass fundamental and chords in Bb,F,C,G,D,A. Major chords are normal for the Student II, but I removed the major third note for each chord, so they work for major and minor tunes. Please see the video for further explanation and demonstration, This is a great little instrument, perfect for busking or learning.
Hohner Amatona IV button accordion (sold). This is the four voice ‘DeLuxe’ version of this classic instrument, tuned to BC, with five couplers to mix and match the LMMM reeds. As you can hear from the video it sounds fabulous and has a pronounced level of tremolo without being harsh on the ear.
Hohner one-row melodeon/accordion in the key of C and made in Germany. This instrument is in excellent condition with virtually no wear apart from some minor scuffs on the bellows tape. I tweaked the tuning and fitted a keyboard limiter to prevent the buttons dropping a long way into the keyboard. Please view the video to learn more about this melodeon.
Hohner Corona II in A/D/G. A three row instrument, with 31 treble keys and 12 basses. Tuned to give a light tremolo and to blend with the basses. The standard Hohner tuning is often brash and sounds sharp in relation to the basses. This instrument now has a sweeter sound than the standard tuning style.
The outside row of buttons in key of A give some useful note reversals not found on a DG melodeon. Specifically push E and pull D. If you happen to play across the G and D rows then familiar key patterns are also available across the D/A rows, without requiring hours of practice to learn new patterns.
