Hi..

I have a question regarding the new Hohner extremes>   I have not tried one personlally, but every video I have seen, it seems that the air runs out very quickly.  Is this a fact or just my imaginaton or the player at the other end of the tube hitting the release valve.

Also,  to my ears the sound is a little different to the regular Coronas..  it sounds a little brighter.
Are they the same reeds??  The regular coronas seem to have a thicker fuller sound.

I been thinking of jumping the bandwagon to the hohner extreme and i want to get someone elses opinion.

I have one in Mi and I really like it. The action is soft and I think the difference your hearing maybe the tuning. The extreme have more hours dedicated to tuning. They don't sound as harsh, in person, then a corona II, or the other lower cost accordions. I haven't had air issues with it, so I can't comment on that.

One thing I forgot to mention is that mine has no switches, so this is my point of view from a no switch standpoint.

Saludos and good luck!

Thanks Ricardo.  I apreciate your input.



I have seen 2 videos with Juan el cachoro Villareal playing the same Redova. (rio progreso)..  one with a a gray corona extreme and the other with a hohner tri-color corona .
To my ears... the tri-color sounds "more happier"    Maybe.. it's because this is sound I'm used to.
