My Hohner Gaelic 111
« on: April 16, 2021, 07:33:45 PM »
I got this box second hand in 1962 or 63. It had been in the attic for at least 30 years. I took it down a few weeks ago expecting it to be totally wrecked but is looked and smelled not too bad so I sent it to Gordon Pattullo who cleaned, rewaxed and tuned the reeds and now it sounds better than it ever did. Just need to remember how to play a 3 row.

Sure it will all come flooding back, might even see yourself and the Gaelic at Thurso or Wick Accordion and Fiddle Clubs in the not too distant future. Fingers crossed that these and other clubs throughout the country are able to get going again before too long.

Cheers Andy - my box is a bit more battered that your pristine one.

The Hohner gaelics are excellent boxes, as close in sound to the Shand Morino as possible I think.
