For Sale - Hohner Double Ray BC 12 Bass *SOLD*
« on: March 14, 2014, 04:27:15 PM »
I'm offering for sale my Hohner Double Ray BC 12-bass.  It is a made-in-Germany, wooden keyboard version dating probably from the late 1950s-1960s.  Externally it is in exceptional condition for its age, with scarcely a mark on it, and the bellows are in excellent condition with no rubbing. The following work was carried out by Theo Gibb in early 2011:
- reeds cleaned, rewaxed, retuned;
- treble and bass pallets refaced;
- treble button travel limited.
Internally, this instrument is now better than new.

In addition, I replaced the treble grille cloth, fitted a velcro-adjustable bass strap and new shoulder straps, and replaced the standard Hohner pull-down air button with a wooden push-in lever; this is easier to operate when playing the lower mini-Stradella bass buttons.

It has a Stagg padded rucksack-type zipped bag.

I doubt if there is a Double Ray 12-bass in better condition anywhere.

I have played this box very little since its refurbishment. I'm happy with the 3-row BCC# and don't see myself ever wanting to play anything else. This box deserves a better home.
 
Asking £430 plus £10 contribution to insured carriage.

This box is still available. I'm not in a hurry to sell, but I'm not using it either.
