It is a three voice Club made 1930s, and only produced in CF and BbEb. There were  two row three voice Hohnrs produced in the same period, mostly in CF and GC but also in semitone tunings, usually CC#, but also as the Double Ray deluxe in BC, and I think that there might be a ver small number in DD#.

Lester seems to have a typo on his website.  You can make out "Club IV"  on the photo of the box.

Brendan Begley has a 2 row in D/D#. A gorgeous box to play,but I don't think it has as much bark as the one Lester is playing in that video.
What is the tuning on Lester's I wonder? (I mean in terms of cents + and -)

Sorry for the delay I've been busy having a bit more of my 15 minutes of fame at Elstree Studios with Sky TV all day yesterday (will let you know if it ever makes the small screen ~ August probably)

The box is in C/F and should be standard Hohner wet tuned, mind you tuned is a bit of an overstatement as I have not looked at it since I bought it of eBay out of someones loft  :o

So long as you're not playing in a group I think there's a lot to be said for "untuned" boxes which have been allowed to mature in isolation.  I've heard a few boxes which sound duller after being properly tuned.
