Hohner Morino
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:12:34 PM »

Do the Hohner Morino models including the clubs have Italian reeds in them?

Thanks,
Michael

Morino was Italian. Hohner Morino Accordions (I am talking of instruments made in the 1940s/50s whilst Morino was alive) combined the very best Italian reed making art, with high quality German Engineering.

Some of the very early Morinos that I have seen have what look like Hohner reeds in them.   The two examples I'm thinking of are both badged "Hohner's Morino". But I would expect to find the very best Italian reeds in anything except these early examples.

I've got a 1970s Morino Club N - I don't know where the reeds wer made, all I know is that they sound superb! They don't have the dynamic range of binci professionals, but they have a good rounded sweet tone. Look up my youtube vids by searching for hohner morino !

This is exactly what I was wanting to know.....if some models actually had Hohner reeds in them.  I don't think I've ever seen a "Hohner's Morino"
