Philosophy

Music is one of the most fundamental forms of human expression. For over 150 years it has been HOHNER's declared mission to bring the joy of music making to people all over the world, to provide them with the best possible instruments so that they can discover their own musical creativity and experience the emotional and communicative power of music for  themselves.

To fulfill these aspirations, HOHNER not only works closely with well-known artists, but also with hobbyists, amateurs, and teachers. Whether in management, the R&D department or in production, numerous HOHNER staff members are enthusiastic musicians themselves and are also closely aware of market developments. This ensures that our instruments are always attuned to the current needs of the player.

Today our assortment ranges from harmonicas and accordions to melodicas, recorders and guitars as well as children's instruments. At the company headquarters in  Trossingen, stateof- the-art precision tools, constantly optimized   production methods and finest craftsmanship come together to create top quality musical instruments which are sold in over 85 countries.

For decades, HOHNER has been the worldwide market leader in the area of harmonicas and accordions and regularly sets new standards for quality and innovation in these fields.

This position is not merely a consequence of technological  advantage, but is primarily a result of closeness to our customers, focused marketing and a real passion for music.
