Hohner Student II Keyboard straps~?
« on: August 31, 2018, 12:41:15 AM »

Where's the likely fix to replace all the strapping and bellows snaps, state-side.
I'm warming up with a Hohner Student II Keyboard, but the leather is all kaput.

Waiting for a Lilliput from Germany for Kentucky Morris support.

I don't know about 'state-side' but Charlie Marshall (CGM Musical) in Scotland sells all sorts of fittings and other stuff for melodeons and accordions. Hohner replacement parts are one of his specialities. Yes - he is on the other side of the MAR to you but don't let that deter you from contacting and ordering from him. He ships overseas and his reputation and service are very good indeed. He is the first in line to call for many of us here.

Hohner Student II Bass sizing standard?
« Reply #3 on: September 01, 2018, 07:12:20 PM »

Philadelphia has a shop a bit closer.
Of three sizes they have handy, the smallest is 13.8 inches. My Student II measures 12 and a half inch, plus needs the hangover addition on each end for the strap hardware. Seems like it would come up short.
Is this a standard fit, from the production standpoint

These ones come with no hole for the fixing screw, so you can make it the length you want.
