hohnerHere's a name that has been on the folk scene since it first started. Manufacturing excellent instruments, Hohner has become one of the mainstays on the folk scene being played by most notable accordion and melodeon "folkies" - I own an old 2 row G/D melodeon myself (which I play very badly but enjoy) it is an excellent instrument and so easy to play.
