New to the boards but was curious where Hohner manufactures their
accordions. If this has already been a topic, please put me in the
Welcome. I am not the resource for this question but I know that most
of them, the cheaper lines for sure, are from Chinese factories.
Are the higher end models still madfe in Germany? Are there still
'Gola's' being made?
I looked At a Gola (but wasn't able to play it) at Montmagny two years
ago. The shop was asking $1000 CND which seemed cheap. Somebody
borrowed it for a performance so it was in pretty good shape.
Are you sure it wasn't 10,000? Hohner gets basically 2 kinds of
accordions from China. the Hohnica which is purchased form a Chinese
factory mad the Chinese way to Hohner specifications and inspected by
Hohner before being shipped to retailers, and the Bravo line and the
Amica whicha re said to be European quality and ae made by Chinese
technicians trained in Germany using hohner-supplied parts and
equipment. These latter are in my opinion, the most bang for the buck in
an imported new accordion. They are as good or better than the
entry-level European imports and for a much lower price.
