Classic Hohner D/G button accordion made in China. It is in like new condition. I purchased this from a business that was closing so I don’t think it was ever sold. There are a few slight bumps and bruises but looks new. It has some patches of surface peeling on the bass strap (hidden while playing) that looks like a manufacturing blemish. The black and gold wooden embossed case is in fine shape. The original bellows are tight and have orange papers and gold tape. 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 aluminum reed plates have the ‘T’ marking on the treble, chord and bass reeds. It has steel reeds.
As the photo shows, the metal grill is fine as is the grill screen and looks new. The plastic keyboard is intact and matte black. I added shoulder strap brackets and the thumb loop looks unused.
This design includes felt padding on the pallets providing quiet action and excellent sealing. It also has partial limiting of the button travel on the treble side. Instead of the buttons disappearing down into the holes when pressed they now stop a little below the keyboard top and have a soft ‘landing’.
I have just tuned all 124 reeds. On the treble side the tremolo beat frequency is around 3 Hz for the lowest notes gradually rising to 8 Hz on the upper notes. I kept the original Hohner zero-plus tuning configuration. I drilled pressure relief holes on some of the highest reeds to help them ‘speak’ properly at low pressures.
I am listing a very similar instrument by Hohner that was made in Germany before manufacturing was moved there. Some of the photos show both so you can make a visual comparison.
Hohner has now completely ceased manufacturing these Pokerworks so buy them while you can.
