For sale is a very special, very sweet sounding Hohner Pokerwork in the key of Bb/Eb. The instrument was restored and tuned following a baroque tuning system from Andreas Werckmeister first published in his writings from 1691.
Readers of our website know about our praise of Ollie King’s fantastic solo record and obviously we had to make a Bb/Eb box after hearing it sound so mellow and pure on that recording. To generate an even more harmonic and sweet sound we choose Werckmeister’s non-equally tempered tuning system in combination with a flat and modern tremolo.
The Hohner Pokerwork itself, is an early one with a black wooden keyboard. Some normal, age related, wear and tear, can be seen on the outside of the box but it comes in overall perfect playing condition.
brand new reeds
new felt pads (to quieten the noise of the keyboard)
