Product Description

Classic Hohner A/D button accordion made in Germany. It is in good condition. There is wear on the bellows tape but not much elsewhere. very minor tiny chips and bumps. The black and gold wooden embossed case is decent. There are a few bellows corners that have been replaced but the bellows are tight. It has 21 treble buttons and 8 bass buttons. The low button on the outer row of the treble side is non-standard and is a low F# both push and pull. The inner row is the standard Hohner accidental although flipped from original so now Bb on the push and C on the pull. The aluminum reed plates all have the ‘T’ marking. It has steel reeds. The newer style metal grill is perfect as is the grill screen. The plastic keyboard is intact with no apparent wear. The bass and bellows straps are used but functional. The thumb loop has been replaced and is heavy duty.

Hohner moved manufacture of the Pokerwork model to China several years ago. I have recently heard they are ceasing all production of the Pokerwork line. This is an earlier Made In Germany model that is higher quality. Since it has been used for a number of years, the bellows are well broken in and the reeds have had time to ‘settle’. I have just carefully checked and tweak tuned the reeds to even out the tremolo. I completely tuned all the bass and chord reeds. On the treble side the tremolo beat frequency is around 2 Hz for the lowest notes gradually rising to 8 Hz on the upper notes.

One negative to this design is that, as manufactured, the treble buttons will dive down well below the surface of the keyboard during play. Someone previously has added button travel limiting so they stop about flush.

It has shoulder strap brackets. New and used straps are available in the Miscellaneous product area.

This is a nice German Hohner Pokerwork. Current new Chinese made instruments retail for around $1100.
