First Accordion

Hohner Bravo III 72 Accordion

Well, I've never owned an accordion before and this was my first foray into accordion purchasing and playing, but so far I'm happy. For the interest of other beginners, I'm a 5'8" 140 lb woman, and this is probably about as big as I can comfortably handle and play. I was contemplating trying the 80 or 96 bass but that would have been a mistake :-) For most beginners, even if you're bigger, I think this would be appropriate. If you're a beginner it's going to be a while before you feel like ripping around on all 120 bass buttons so you may as well start with something smaller and more affordable.

I think the tone's nice, the straps are ok although you can tell they were trying to use less-expensive materials (the buckles and compression straps feel pretty cheap), I'm happy with how the bellows feel, the case is quite well-made (it has backpack straps which makes it marginally less awkward to lug the accordion around), and I recognize that I was buying a cheaper accordion so I would say this is reasonably good value for what I got. Overall I'm happy with my purchase. I may replace the straps or at least the buckles on the straps at some point.

I love playing this instrument. I'm having a ridiculous amount of fun.

Comments about Hohner Bravo III 72 Accordion:

I bought this instrument about 1.5 years ago. I like the quality of the sound from the reeds, but the volume is a bit poor. I've had a lot of problems with valves that play more than one note at the same time. The snaps that hold the bellows broke. The valve selectors that control the Stradella bass buttons don't function at all; they're stuck on 1 setting. All of these issues arose after only 3 months. I know Hohner makes some fine products, but I'm sorry to say that I wouldn't buy this instrument again.

Excellent accordion for the price

By Alan T.

from Baltimore, Maryland

Comments about Hohner Bravo III 72 Accordion:

I have owned this accordion for 3 years. For the price, it is outstanding. It is rugged and has always worked perfectly. It has a musette, bassoon and clarinet reed which sound good. Even the Hohner gig bag is well-done. I bought it for the light weight and inexpensive cost. Musette is perfect for Dr. John-type New Orleans music. The bassoon works well for jazz. All-in-all, I use it more than the more expensive and heavier accordions I have. The bass is quite good as well.

Not a great instrument

Comments about Hohner Bravo III 72 Accordion:

I purchased this accordion, and after a week of playing it, returned it. There were reeds that did not respond properly, others out of tune. One reed was so flat, that I believe that it was about to break. Quality control is apparently not important in this line of Hohner accordions.The keyboard had the feel of a low end synthesizer. There was a constant growl in the bass section, not just when a button was released. The reeds are very stiff, requiring a lot of air to make them sound. They don't have many overtones, so the sound is dull and lifeless. The tremelo and master settings are ok, but the single reed stops (clarinet and bassoon) sound thin and weak.I purchased this accordion to have something small and light for portability. It just isn't worth the price for what you get. Better to put the money toward the purchase of a good instrument.

    Even tho' this accordion was listed as slightly used, it is just like new. I love the tone of a Hohner and have always wanted one. This was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up.

    Great little accordion for stroller or backup instrument for the money invested. Description in the add was accurate and I would buy from this company again. I have accordions that I paid 10 times this much...not bad at all.

    Comments about Hohner Bravo III 72 Accordion:

    I purchased this accordion in December 2011 and I played it daily for 5 years. I always liked the "swing tuning", the key size, the light weight, the tone. But, in the 3rd year, one of the basses, the A bass and it's counter bass stuck inside, requiring service. I thought it was because I played it a lot. On Facebook, however, a player from Europe said it also happened to him and that he had to leave a gig because of this failure. Then suddenly another, then another said the same thing. "The basses stick inside after a time". I went to a well known distributor who had well qualified technicians who said that they have repaired this model numerous times and the fix is to replace the entire bass module at a cost of several hundred. I paid about thirteen hundred with the gig bag. My decision was to upgrade this year to a very nice, although quite similar sounding accordion at 3 times the cost. I have kept the Bravo as a "rainy day" instrument. Had I known, I would have shopped around--but I did get good practice out of it. However, if you are planning on doing gigs with this, don't buy it, because it may fail. If it wasn't for the issue with the basses I would give it 4 or 5 stars for the price. The bass issue is HUGE if you play out because there is no faking it, it makes a continuous noise as you push and pull the bellows.
