"I Never Feel As Truly Alive As When I Play Music."
For generations, Hohner has dedicated everything towards music for a simple reason: Music is a way of life. In fact, you could say it’s the best way of life. People who aren’t into music simply don’t know what they’re missing. Of course we would say that, wouldn’t we? But like countless musicians all over the world, from beginner to professional, we feel so strongly about music that we want to help open the door to this experience to everyone. With instruments designed to convey the joy and the passion which inspires everybody to improve their skills and develop further.
We wouldn’t be where we are now, as world market leader for harmonicas and accordions, if it wasn’t for our passion and our shared commitment to our craft and the traditions which it has inspired. This is a defining element of the Hohner sound, a key to unlock the world of music. Our mission is to pass this passion on to you, with perfectly crafted instruments which enable you to truly Enjoy music.
“Music is my life, it is a reflection of what I go through.”, Lenny Kravitz
A lot has happened since Matthias Hohner founded his company in Trossingen, Germany in 1857. HOHNER became the market leader in harmonicas and accordions with a worldwide network of artists through consistent dedication to quality. Our instruments have strongly influenced the development of the Blues, become a vital part of Folk music traditions around the world, played a significant role in the ongoing evolution of Jazz and found their place on the Classical concert stage. Today we continue to develop new instruments and improve existing ones. Always with the intention to enable everyone, everywhere to Enjoy music.
