There is a little town in Germany called Trossingen; it is home to the “largest factory of small musical goods in the world.” Since 1857, the biggest little instrument company in the history of the world has realized the dream and life’s work of its founder, Matthias Hohner, by the constant innovation and consistent quality of Hohner instruments.

Over the years things have changed. They make more and more of the world’s favorite instruments, expanding the line to include not just harmonicas but accordions, recorders, melodicas, guitars, ukuleles and drums. They manufacture and distribute for several companies like Sonor Drums and Kohala and Lanikai Ukuleles.

This year they have added Anacleto Accordions to the line. Made in Italy, these incredibly beautiful instruments are true to the Hohner brand, providing unparalleled accuracy and attention to detail. From the inlay and design to the handmade reeds, Hohner has done it again, creating top-of-the-line instruments at reasonable prices. This daunting task has been made possible by using intelligent manufacturing technology combined with old-world craftsmanship.

Matthias Hohner’s passion was building the world’s finest instruments. For 150 years Hohner Inc. has been doing just that. His profile now adorns millions of harmonicas and his name is on literally millions of instruments worldwide.

For generations Hohner has been making people smile and every year at the NAMM show there is always good music to be found at the booth. Last year we found Legendary blues harmonica player Kim Wilson, the lead singer and front man of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Next to him was one of my all-time favorite bass players,  Larry Taylor of Canned Heat and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers fame. They played a killer set of classic blues for a great crowd of dedicated fans and it didn’t take long until they were joined by everyone else within earshot!
