Hohner HA114C Cajun accordion/melodeon. One row, four voice melodeon in the key of C.
This accordion appeared to be brand new, in mint condition. It was made in Germany and had the characteristic red and gold bellows tape of instruments made in Germany.
This is a rare example of a mint condition German made 114C.

Hohner Verdi I piano accordion – a classic instrument from the 1930/40s. (SOLD) This one has a striking art deco design on the grille. A two voice instrument with 48 bass (counter bass, bass, major and minor chord). Light weight and ideal for gigging and busking. This was restored and sounded marvelous. I was able to play it for a few weeks before a customer bought it. I am on the look out for more Verdi I’s. They are very nice when fully functioning.

Hohner Atlantic III piano accordion. Three voice (low reed, and two medium reeds) with 9 couplers (4 are repeats), mute switch, 3 couplers on the 5 voice bass side.
This is a lovely instrument – the 1960s Atlantics were fitted with composite pads (a sandwich of leather and foam attached to the keys and which form an air seal until you operate a key e.g. sound a note), and over time the foam in the pad disintegrates. All the pads on the bass and treble were replaced. The internal condition is good with no valve noise, and the instrument is in tune and sounds great. See the video below.
What can I say? These little boxes don’t quite have legendary status, but they are so dainty and very desirable. This one is in Eb Bb, a very nice key. It does require quite a bit of work – but it will have new bellows to replace the old ones, which are beyond repair. This one will be declubbed.
Check back later for pictures and video. This box has been ordered.
