Hohner Instructional DVD

Hohner DVDOn Hohner's low-cost DVD, Steve Baker and Gabi Hand present the Hohner Service Workshops for Harmonica. Hohner has put together a series of videos, which will provide you with the information you need to enable you to conduct repair and maintenance operations on your harmonicas yourself. From time to time, harmonicas need tuning and maintenance just like any other musical instrument. The Hohner Harmonica Service Workshops on this DVD are intended to show you, what a quantum leap you can make, if you learn to perform these service and maintenance operations yourself. Because, once you got the hang of it, you will own instruments which are priceless, because they have been setup to reflect your requirements as a player.  Visit Hohner's CShop for their tools and kits.
