(fairly) early Hohner
« on: June 08, 2019, 07:19:50 PM »

Hi everyone,
Anyone good at (fairly)  early Hohner models?
What could this be then? I just won the auction, it's a CF but I haven't seen it IRL yet.
What decade?

It is, I suspect a three voice pre Corso. I have one that I'm slowly restoring, same colour and everything

Thanks John,
that's just it, Corso is a BIG heavy melodeon and this one is the size and weight of an Erica or Pokerwork. Looking at the metal grill, I'd prefer to call it a "pre pokerwork". Working with restoring one does that make any sense to you?
And when was it made?

I think if you take some measurements you will find it is a little bigger than a Pokerwork.
