George Miklas (on this forum), Steve Malerbi (northern California harprepair -at- hotmail.com), Mike Easton (on this forum) in the eastern US are all techs who can work on older Hohners.
Just for some perspective, the Chromonika III dates from 1955 and earlier - before there was such a thing as an Edsel. And no car manufacturer maintains a parts inventory for 60-year old cars.
British players used to believe (and maybe still do) that Hohner kept the best chromatics for sale in Germany, and the Chromonika III was a Germany-only version of what was sold outside Germany as the #280 (aka 64). The older vintage instruments with their wood combs and straight tuning (as opposed to later plastic-combed, cross-tuned models) are prized by some players.

Need a recommendation for a repair person for a Hohner Chromonika lll.
Purchased recently at an antique store, very good cosmetic condition (and a
great box!) but has issues with some reeds. Hohner won't work on it as it is
a discontinued model. Would love to get it back to playable condition
