I recently purchased a Corona lll (5-Letras) for playing Vallenato. As soon as I opened the box, I noticed the Keyboard Buttons were very high (approx 3/16" or more as compared to my Corona ll's, which are about 1/8" high). Is this normal for the Corona lll's because of the 3 Reeds per Button ? In other words, is this the way they're supposed to be on the Corona lll's ? Because of this, I find it very hard to play compared to my Corona ll's. Does anybody know the answer to this ? Could the Action be lowered & how do you do it ? Thanks

Some Corona IIIs have high action, others low action. It's more of chance, from my experience. Every Corona III I've owned has low action, but these were models made in the 90s. I noticed that the newer Corona IIIs have higher action (and really dislike that). I believe you can get a tech to get it lowered. I'd email Hohner, to see.

Thanks.

You can lower them yourself...contact me if you want a vid 😂 but its really simple just needs to have the grill removed hold the pallet from the metal end tightly with your hand or appliers then press down on the button until you reach the desired height . . Repeat 30 times..

I’d say the first few buttons as a first timer my be 10 minutes each as you wanna try it out make sure your pallets dont become leaky if you lower the buttons ( im sur if yur box is relatively new it wont leak) im used to playing around with older boxs 30s 40s 50s so the metal for the keyboard mecanism is a bit softer easily can be bent but ive done it on a panther keyboard system just to test and its not a big difference..but once you become familiar with the process should be no longer a minute per button unless you get fancy using a measuring tape and all that to ensure same heigh theought .... if u don’t wanna play with the lowering this manner the buttons Yu have the alternative to buy lower buttons that will not stick out as much like this dude on the video:


*Warning* If you plan to sell or recycle the original buttons never use a pliers like dude on video that will put some ugly markings on you buttons. Either use a cloth to cover the buttons or tape up the appliers so they’re not bitting into the buttons.
