Re: [Harp-L] Hohner Professional 2016 CBH

Yo Paul - I can answer some of your questions about the CBH.  It was designed by (and named after) Cham-Ber Huang.  They were assembled in the USA in the 1970s when Hohner USA was located in Hicksville, New York.  Chamber-Huang worked for Hohner at that time, before he left to start Huang Harmonicas.

Mine says that it was made in the USA. While the reedplates are marked as being made in Germany, were the plastic parts and the final assembly all done here? Were they all made here, or were some made in Germany? Finally, how do these stand up to Hohner's newest models? Mine was clean and in beautiful shape when I got it and it plays quite well (but, then, I'm far from being an expert).
