Literally millions of musicians across the world are playing Hohner instruments across the world. Founded in 1857, the Hohner company launched its first guitar models in the 1960s. Between 1970 and 1985, Hohner built up an assortment of acoustic nylon string and steel-string guitars and started working with famous guitarists such as Hank Williams Jr and the session musicians of many world-class Hohner harmonica endorsers.
Hohner plays a key role in music education. Music teachers recognize reliable quality, good sound and playability of the Hohner nylon string guitars. The Hohner HC Series of classical guitars has become a de-facto standard in many countries. For thousands of new players, their first guitar (their first love?) is a Hohner.
Since 2008, Hohner has completely revamped its assortment of acoustic steel string guitars. The highly successful Essential Series was launched in 2009. In blind tests, guitarists frequently select Hohner Essentials over competitive guitars that cost double the price.
Hohner launched the Hohner Professional Series of electric guitars in 1985, the result of a historical collaboration with Thomas Weilbier (Music Center No. 1 in Hamburg, Germany) and Jack Westheimer. Hohner licensed the ingenious Steinberger headless design. Hohner still manufactures its headless guitars and basses today.
In 2003, Hohner expanded in ukuleles, launching its new Lanikai brand. Today, Lanikai is one of the fastest growing ukulele brands worldwide and a market leader in this exciting segment.
