Hohner Clavinet Restoration

The Clavinet is an intriguing instrument with a unique sound that has many specific traits. They are often overlooked for servicing and restoration if they just “make sound” but can be clunky as hell. A well performing Clavinet is a true audible and tactile difference.

The first step in any servicing or restoration project is the initial assessment of the various parts and tolerances necessary to achieve a high quality instrument.
