The Hohner Pokerwork melodeon has been the world leader for many years and first choice for beginners and morris musicians and has been made famous by the playing of John Kirkpatrick.
Remember: If it's Hohner and you've seen it advertised cheaper elsewhere, call us last!
The Hohner Pokerwork melodeon derives its name from the attractive black and gold pokerwork pattern on its body. Not only is this melodeon widely used by performers and Morris musicians alike; it is a great beginner's melodeon.
It's robust build results in an instrument that will give many years playing service.
If attention is ever needed, the spare parts for a Hohner Pokerwork melodeon are readily available and easy to fit - and, once having mastered the art of playing the melodeon and considering a more deluxe model, its second hand value holds a good proportion of its original purchase price.
More than anything, it has the true, unique Hohner Pokerwork sound that many other melodeon makers try to emulate but never seem to quite manage. It features 21 buttons on the treble side and 8 buttons on the bass side with a flat metal grille that not only serves to add brightness to the instrument's sound, but also looks fantastic. Strap brackets and shoulder straps included. In many respects the Hohner Pokerwork set the standard by which all other melodeons are judged.
