Description

Hohner 2 row BbEb in a very attractive blue pearloid finish.   A lovely example of a 1930s Hohner restored to good playing order.  It has new valves and wax, and is tuned to concert pitch with a light tremolo based on 3Hz. It is third button start with standard Hohner accidentals. The tuning is Viennese with one reed below nominal pitch and one above so that the two sounding together are heard as concert pitch.  The keyboard, treble grill and straps have been replaced. The treble button travel has been limited to stop the buttons disappearing down the holes, and the bass buttons have been bushed.   This link takes you to detailed photos of some of the restoration process.
