Hohner Inc. is expanding the A+ line of student guitars to include uniquely styled student Bluegrass instruments (banjos and mandolins). Hohner is recognized worldwide as a preferred supplier of superior student guitars. Extending this tradition, an F mandolin, A mandolin, Travel banjo, Open-back banjo and a Resonator banjo will now be added to the A+ lineup. “The A+ brand was created expressly so that we could highlight the many manufacturing and design improvements that have been incorporated in the production of these instruments,” said Rock Clouser, Product Manager for stringed instruments. “These refinements produce instruments that have been optimized for maximum playability, featuring stable and reliable quality, improved tactile response and accurate intonation,” he added.
“The goal of A+ by Hohner is to provide excellent instruments for a positive enriching learning experience for players of any age and any skill level,” stated Scott Emmerman, Director of Marketing & Sales. “We start with high criteria, carefully review details and develop instruments that are “fun-damentally” different.”
The F and A style mandolins feature well blended traditional tobacco sunburst finishes, solid one-piece tailpieces for sustain and convenience, a rock-solid multi-pin body-neck joint, larger player friendly side position markers, and of course, properly seasoned wood with good grain. Additional A+ features include custom bracing, specified fret sizes, and upgraded strings, nuts and bridges. The F mandolin even has a convenient sculpted fingerboard extension for fast bluegrass picking styles.
The A+ by Hohner banjos features a rich mahogany red 24 bracket shell, deluxe tuners, a warm tone Remo Weatherking Fiberskyn™ head, an ebony top three leg maple bridge, truss rod, and upgraded strings.
All A+ by Hohner Student Bluegrass instruments ship with a padded black nylon gig bag.
