Comments about Hohner Bravo III 120 Accordion:
I just bought and recieved this accordion and played it for a couple of hours. I have a few other accordions and a bandoneon, and I perform French and Tango music. I have a sensitive ear and value good tone quality. After playing and listening to this instrument carefully, I am unsatisfied and have decided to return it.The Right Hand side of the instrument certainly sounds better than the Left Hand side, however, it lacks a tone quality, a smoothness/mellowness of tone that my other old accordions have (a child-size Titano and a Rondella musette, both old Italian-mades). It has a rough/rattly sound, which does not get smoother the more you play. The musette does not beat evenly in the tuning from key to key. And the button selecting the sound of all the reeds going at once sounds so bad as to be completely unusable, because of the rough tuning and harsh texture.The sound of the Left Hand side is what really makes me think this instrument is not worth the price. There are 3 different selections of reed combinations, and each one is very clumsy/rattly sounding, even more than the RH. All three are different combinations of octaves - there are no single notes in the bass - so it is impossible to get one pure-sounding note in the LH. The LH overpowers the RH because of its harsh/clunky tone quality.It is certainly a good-looking instrument, but I wish as much care would have been put into the sound-producing materials on the inside as is put into the beautiful casing and gigbag that comes with it.Some research will reveal that the Bravo line is made in the Hohner factory in China rather than in Germany, where their high-end models are made. I suspect the materials used are the cheapest availabe, and the craftsman are much less than enthusiastic about their work.Hearing this accordion makes me wary to even try one of Hohner's high-end models.
