Each accordion is hand crafted and designed with crystal patterns and color schemes to fit the artists taste and create stage presence. In order to meet the functional demands of different music styles, the Anacleto collection offers 3, 5, and 9 registers for different tonalities. Norteño, Conjunto, Tex-Mex, and Zydeco players will find the Anacleto Series has products designed specifically for their music genre. For those who demand even more versatility, the two-tone (two accordions in one) and 4-row diatonic models extend the note range.
In creating the Anacleto Series, Hohner consulted with the world’s most famous artists to specifically address fingerboard dimensions, tactile feel, and smooth mechanism action for precise playing. Eduardo Hernandez of Los Tigres Del Norte commented when playing the new Anacleto Series “When I first placed my hand on the fingerboard, I could tell right away what I had in my hands without even playing it.”
Every Anacleto Series accordion is made using hand made (a mano) reeds of the highest quality available. Our reeds are fabricated from the finest ribbon reed stock and are placed in hard aluminum frames with exceptionally tight tolerances. “Machine reeds,” “dural reeds” and “tipo a mano reeds” used by many other famous brands simply do not provide the level of performance and durability required to meet the Anacleto standard.
