Hohner Double Ray (black dot) BC

£550.00

Hohner Double Ray from the 1930s.  I have given it a full overhaul with all reeds cleaned, re-valved, re-waxed and tuned to a moderate tremolo.   I have converted the bass to the modern bass layout shown here.  I’ve put in a limit to the button travel on the right hand side, re-faced the pallets on both sides and fitted felt bushes to the bass buttons.   It’s now ready for a new owner and a new 21st century playing career.

Description

Hohner Double Ray (aka black dot) BC. A lovely early example from the 1930s and the model that Hohner developed with input from Jimmy Shand.  I have complete a full overhaul with all reeds cleaned, re-valved, re-waxed and tuned to a moderate tremolo.   I have converted the bass from the Hohner layout designed for playing in B to the modern bass layout shown here.  I’ve put in a limit to the button travel on the right hand side, re-faced the pallets on both sides and fitted felt bushes to the bass buttons.  Externally the black painted finish, with its striking white and green graphics, is all original. I have done very little apart from cleaning and fitting new bellows straps.  It’s now ready for a new owner and a new 21st century playing career.
