Most of you probably
                  know Waltraud Bauer from my last visit to Hohner - some wanted
                  to know what she is listening to: It is German pop music.

             

         
           
             
           
         

               
             

         

         

 


         


         

This time we get a chance
            watching her assembling a candy blue Corona II classic. Only 100 altogether
            of these candy red, candy blue and cyan to purple instruments are
            made.


         


         
           
             
           
         

               
Parts waiting for
                  assemblance. 100 candy blue, candy red & cyan to purple
                  in all are made.

I agree Hohner has a major rep worldwide. I think it's awesome that you get to visit the factory and see up close how it's done. Thanks, Peter

So Pete, is the Corona III still been made in China? or Are there plans to bring it to Germany?

Ok.  I found the answer to my question at one of Mr. Gilbert Reyes messages.  He says Coronas III are made in Germany.  I guess I got confused because in the picture tour PU posted of the Hohner Factory he mentioned that Coronas III are made in China.
