What voices doHohner two stops have?
« on: March 11, 2018, 11:59:34 AM »

As the title says. What voices do Hohner one- row 2-stop melodeons have.
Am I right in thinking that a one row two stop would be an H112

I once had a Hohner 1-row 2-stop in C. The voices were M and M+.

Thanks Steve. That 's half my question (:)
Am I right about the other half, anyone?

HA112. Correct.
C and D boxes usually in MM, but the G versions will be an octave lower than you would find on a standard 2 voice D/G.

Thanks. Makes me wonder why they bothered with two stops? I was hoping it would be LMM.

That would be a HA113.

Ah, Thanks Rees.

Edit, and I suppose that will have three stops?

I have a Bailey/Hohner HA115 1 Row 5 Stop, normal L, M, M+, H in the treble but with an additional stop to change the basses from D/A to D/Em.   (:)

From today's perspective you'd wonder why they bothered, though they have had their fans even in recent years (you'll see used 2-stops by some of the top Quebec makers for sale on eBay). And 2-stops evidently used to sell for Hohner, but maybe the biggest sttraction was that they were cheaper.

If that had a  treble C natural note it would make it a great em box. Dorian is not quite so useful.

"additional stop to change the basses from D/A to D/Em."

That sounds more than interesting Mr Bailey, I don't suppose that you'd care to share some pictures of the adaptation?

Play single reed and or
I guess if for no other reason they help with tuning of the instrument and also act as a handle  >:E

I play my four stop with the low reed only but very rarely

"Here it is in action"

Thank you Mr B. I had hoped to see in the action as opposed to the in action. But I fully understand that you may not wish your ingenuity in design and implementation to be placed freely into the public domain.

Interesting, I think that would still be a 112 where there is two stops.
I have not seen a stamp on any 114, 113, or a 112 , other than the key stamp.
But I have not seen them all so who knows, maybe 117 is correct.
I sure someone will be along to educate me.😀

My 117 has two stops.

Looks like an early-1930's version of a No. 522 to me...
