The new BRAVO series boasts a redesigned treble grille which is both modern and appealing. The new technical development SILENTKEY minimizes irritating key noise by means of an improved keyboard mounting.
New register switches with pleasing haptics optimize contact with the instrument and ensure security and comfort when shifting between registers. In addition, the anodized bass mechanism guarantees almost wear-free operation of finger sliders. The new BRAVO series comes with an improved, extra stable gigbag with ergonomically shaped grip.
As has been the case for many years, these accordions are built on original HOHNER machines by a factory in Jiangyin, China, which works exclusively for HOHNER. Compliance with the high quality requirements is ensured by skilled staff trained by Hohner and is controlled by Hohner in Trossingen.
The Bravo Series sets the gold standard for students and beginners. The rugged and musically versatile instruments in this series offer performance features previously available only in considerably more expensive instruments. A good example is the Bravo’s incorporation of the T-keyboard mechanism, offering outstanding playability and ease of service.
The HOHNER project team was led by the input of both accordion teachers and students regarding another important aspect of design: the instrument should be as light as possible, especially for the youngest pupils. The 48 bass accordions weigh only 4.9 kg (10.8 lbs.), making them perhaps the lightest available instruments in their class on the market. The larger instruments are also exceptionally light.
