Hohner 270 Nails
« on: August 05, 2022, 05:29:06 PM »
I know this subject is not new. I recently bought a new model because that is the Model that works with my Hands Free Chromatic Harmonica System.  When I bought my first Model about 1953  I think it was called 2601/2  it was a pain up the [butt] for maintenance so I replace the Nails with St Steel screws many times over the years. Why do Hohner have their head in the sand while even Chinese Cheaper Chromatics are put together in a more Engineered way? When I was a young Boy in London in the 1950s if a Reed died out on me I would jump on a Tube Train & travel to Farringdon Rd where Hohner UK used to have German Tech guys, they cleaned & replaced the damaged Reed & wrapped the Harmonica in tissue paper just like new, guess what NO CHARGE for a future 15 year old  with a bit of talent  when I played them a tune . Most of the ones I met were not very good Harmonica players but unbelievably skilled in pulling apart the Nailed plates with ease & fixing for the young scruffy kid waiting outside in that depressing part of London. The same Tech’s used to fix the Accordion’s also , I doubt if Nails were used in them, all the best from NZ

The only thing good about nails is that it makes taking them apart and putting them back together again is a snap.
