 Model Electronium NG Accordion
 Description Electronium NG Accordion Very rare electronic accordion with a beautiful classy design, from the endlessly innovative Hohner company. First made in 1952 as the Electronium A, this model probably dates from the 60's but is in near-mint condition. New, unsold old stock, evidently (see name tag in photo). Has no bass/chord buttons - plays single notes on the right-hand keyboard. This is not an electronic attempt to sound like a real accordion - it provides 16 voices mostly emulating wind instruments: 8' Flute, 8' Oboe, 8' English Horn, 8' Klarinette (Clarinet), 16' Fagott (Bassoon), 16' Saxophon, 16' Horn, 8' Trompete (Trumpet), 16' Posaune (Trombone), 16' Tuba, 8' Violine, 16' Cello, 16' Bass (actually 32', like a Sousaphone - powerful!), 16' E-Bass, 8' Pan Flute, and 16' Perc (a mellow marimba-like sound). Each voice can be raised or lowered by an octave and has a nice bright red indicator lamp next to its button. Vibrato speed/depth and tuning are variable over a wide range. The two percussive voices (E-Bass and Perc) can have their decay time set from a short pluck to a long sustain. Master volume is controlled by the usual movement of the bellows. The sounds are not exactly authentic, more evocative, and like early preset synths, really come to life with the addition of reverb or other effects. Comes complete with a power supply unit (was 220V, now set to 100V, can probably be easily reset if needed), also a schematic, leather straps, and a deluxe Hohner green baize lined wooden fitted case.
