Classic Concertone button accordion made in Germany in the Hohner factory. It is in excellent condition. There is little wear anywhere. The stained/ clear coat case is in great shape. The original bellows are tight. No wear to the bellows tape so it probably wasn’t played very much. It has 21 treble buttons and 8 bass buttons. The low buttons on each row of the treble side are the standard Hohner accidentals. The zinc reed plates have the ‘H’ marking on the treble and chords and ‘T’ marking on the basses. It has steel reeds.
As the photos shows, the metal grill is intact and has a new grill screen. The wooden keyboard is intact with very little wear. Often there are cracks or entire sections missing between keys on some of these old Hohners. The original thumb loop has been removed. I have just tuned all 124 reeds. On the treble side the tremolo beat frequency is around 1 Hz for the lowest notes gradually rising to 3 Hz on the upper notes. The original leather one way valves were all removed and replaced with modern plastic one way valves for long trouble free life. All reedplates were removed, cleaned, one-way valves replaced and remounted & rewaxed onto the reedblocks. Final tuning occurs in situ with the reedblocks inside the case.
As the photo shows, the metal grill is in nice shape. The original front and rear grill clothes have been replaced. The wooden keyboard is intact with no cracks or missing pieces. Often there are cracks or entire sections missing between keys on some of these old accordions. The bass and bellows straps have been replaced. The thumb loop has been removed. This has two shoulder strap brackets mounted. No strap is included.
