Weltmeister in A/D (“gedraaide 5de Toets”)

A very pretty Weltmeister button accordion for sale in A/D, freshly tuned and serviced – ready to play. The accordion sounds very mellow and quiet because A/D is much lower sounding in pitch than C/F. This is a perfect instrument for a beginner or someone with sensitive neighbors.

A Swedish waltz played on the Weltmeister A/D

The bellows are as new, the keyboard plays smooth and quiet and the instrument is light and easy to handle.

The accordion has the following features:

  • New tuning to medium flat tremolo (+8 ct on A)
  • Gedraaide 5de toets – push/pull of 5ths button on inside row is reversed. Note: I can remove this if needed.
  • Optional: Bass without thirds
  • Shoulder strap
  • Full 1-year workshop warranty
  • You can add a suitable hard case for an additional fee

Price: Sold.

RESTORED 3-VOICE HOHNER C#/D (~1930)

This beautiful Hohner accordion is from the 1930ies and was one of Hohner’s top range models in those days. It was originally tuned C/F before I converted it to C#/D.

It has been fitted with new super dural reeds and tuned to medium tremolo of +-10ct on A. Due to the three voices it plays loud and with a rich and mellow sound. The thirds have been removed from the basses.

The keyboard and buttons are kept original but have been setup (limited button travel, new felt pads and mechanics adjustment) to play much more quiet and easy. The visible metal parts have been cleaned and de-rusted and the bellows are in a good condition.

The instrument comes with a full 1-year workshop warranty and a shoulder strap. A suitable hard case can be added for an additional fee if needed.

For Sale: Hohner Marca Registrada 1-row

Playing one-row boxes has become a bit of a trend lately. Maybe it’s the search for simplicity or just Emma Corbett killing it on her melodeon (listen here)…

On behalf of an acquaintance, I’m selling a beautiful old Hohner Marca Registrada in the key of C. The box belonged to a relative that recently passed away and was hardly ever played. The Instrument is stunningly beautiful and in top condition: Ready-to-play. It does not come with my full workshop warranty but has been checked in the workshop and the felt pads on the bass-side have been renewed. It plays nicely, the bellows are tight and the tuning is good.

some say…. on the old one-row

Comes with the original fabric bag and shoulder strap.

Price: 300 EUR + shipping

Hohner Pokerwork in A/D

I am selling a german made Hohner Pokerwork in the Tuning A/D. The instrument has been improved with new feltpads (silent keyboard action, even in fast tunes) and a fresh tuning with less tremolo that suits the mellow sound of the box very well. New shoulder strap holders were added and the grill lining renewed on both treble and bass side.

Here’s what it sounds like solo.
Here’s what it sounds like when playing some reels

The instrument is in excellent playing condition and looks as shiny as new though it is a second hand instrument.

One or two shoulder straps are included and a suitable small Hohner hard case or gigbag can be added for an additional cost of 50 EUR / 30 EUR.

For Sale: Restored C/F Weltmeister

A nice pre-1990 Weltmeister Box tuned in C/F. I have come across a couple of Weltmeister Accordions already and this one is in surprisingly good condition. Accordion making has a long tradition in the area of Klingenthal as can be read in this little overview. This box was made in the days of the nationally owned enterprise, VEB Klingenthaler Harmonikawerke most likely pre-1990 as indicated by the sticker of origin (DDR – socialist eastern Germany).

The accordion is in mint condition, fully restored and tuned. The tuning is C/F with additional semi-tones (F#/G# , D#/C#) placed at the bottom of the keyboard. It plays light and makes an ideal first instrument for a beginner or travel accordion.

Watch me restore a beautiful vintage Hohner two-row

Whilst I removed all the old reeds and replaced them with new TAM reeds in B/C on the inside, I decided to keep the look and feel of the instrument on the outside.
The buttons show some tear from being used all those years, but in my opinion this adds to the instrument.
The only thing I had to fix on the outside was putting new feltpads to take away the button noise.

The result can be watched and heard in this little youtube clip
