Hohner Pokerwork melodeon this one is dg but available in other keys too

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.

But don't just take our word for it... Here is what John Kirkpatrick has to say about it...

I have just had a go on one of the new Chinese made Hohner Pokerwork two-row melodeons. I have to say I'm absolutely delighted to see them back in circulation. There is a general feeling of unease about the new version of this trusty old war-horse.
It looks good- the classic Hohner shape and style. I found the touch of buttons to be slightly more responsive than I'm used to with a Hohner - it's always been a real battle to get those buttons down, and on this model reaction was faster, making it easier to play.
The volume level seemed maybe a couple of cent less than I would have expected, with the highest three of four notes on the G row sounding particularly weak. But they always do up there, and only a dog hating lunatic would stay up at the squeaky end for more than a fleeting moment in any case.
The Chinese Hohner still sings with a lovely clear, bright voice it is still the perfect sound for carrying over a rowdy morris team out in the street or a noisy hall full of ceilidh dancers. The tremolo tuning breathes warmth and life into the playing, and immediately imparts a quality of Englishness that the far more expensive models, with their currently fashionable dry tuning, simply never achieve.
I unhesitatingly recommend it- great value for money, a superb starting instrument, and one which should be valued and cherished by anyone who loves the traditional sound of English Folk music.
