Hohner Student VM 48 bass piano accordion. Complete reed refurbishment carried out by Jollyrogeraccordions – new valves, wax, tuned to concert pitch. See pictures below.
Ideal for learning or for taking to music sessions, or for busking or carrying while travelling. This instrument was made in Germany and has a bright Hohner sound and is very far ahead of any modern Chinese made accordions, especially in terms of its playability, weight and sound. Please see the demo video to hear it!
