While it is true that trying new things is good, there are few people in this world that can argue: tried and trusted things are always good. Which is why whenever I go looking for a reed based instrument, I turn to Hohner. This manufacturer has yet to prove me wrong in my choice. They have been producing reed instruments for ages now, harmonicas and accordions included, which is why I am always proud and excited to present a hohner accordion, and talk about it. So prepare to hear a whole lot about the Hohner Panther G/C/F 3-Row Diatonic Accordion, and the virtues of it, for the beginner accordionist especially.
Alright so hear me out about something. I like to talk a lot about how I enjoy unique looking instruments and how it is important to me that an instrument looks distinctive among its peers. This is because the design of an instrument usually allows for such unique adjustments. Though there are some instruments that don’t really handle body adjustments well, and the accordion is one of them. Designed to be perfect as it is, any changes in looks might cause it to fail as an instrument. Which is why I am not going to rave about how this Hohner Panther G/C/F 3-Row Diatonic Accordion looks just like a little more expensive model from Hohner. It works, so it shall be good enough for me, and it shall be good enough for you. The materials it is made of are sturdy and do a good job of staying in tact years after you’ve bought it. The metal cover for the sound hole is stylish and adds a bit of flair. And the red cloth bellows add class to the instrument, working well as a nice contrast to the rest of the accordion. Great stuff, so why worry about uniqueness, right?
The Hohner Panther G/C/F 3-Row Diatonic Accordion comes with a set of 31 treble buttons and 12 bass buttons, as well as two strap brackets. The buttons are pretty much the same as in the more expensive models, not having too many issues with either the pressure required for control of the buttons.
The accordion comes with a set of very capable reed located within it. The sound resulting from the reeds is incredibly high quality, with deep tones that can be bright, warm and customized in any way that a musician might want them to be customized.
Hohner Panther Sound
The sound of the accordion is on par with the more expensive model produced by Hohner that I have mentioned so many times up to this point. The tones produced by Hohner Panther G/C/F 3-Row Diatonic Accordion are clear and clean, loud and incredibly enjoyable for anyone listening. The controls present on the accordion are not in any way intimidating, while also providing a great level of control over the sound. The range of the instrument is impressive, while the expressive nature of the sound so very detailed and powerful.
Overall, this is a great accordion to get your hands on. Coming with a strap and an accordion guide, it is perfect for beginners. You will have to pick up a case separately, but while you are waiting for it to arrive, the warranty should be sufficient protection.
