The HOHNER Group's lengthy tradition of high quality musical instrument manufacture began in the mid-19th century.
In 1857 Matthias Hohner founded a small harmonica factory and in 1875 Johannes Link embarked on the production of SONOR percussion instruments.
In time, what started off as a cottage industry grew to become one of the most firmly established companies in international musical culture. In cooperation with global stars, the legendary instruments of HOHNER and SONOR created unforgettable musical milestones.
Music is one of the most fundamental forms of human expression. For over 150 years it has been HOHNER's declared mission to bring the joy of music making to people all over the world, to provide them with the best possible instruments so that they can discover their own musical creativity and experience the emotional and communicative power of music for themselves.
To fulfill these aspirations, HOHNER not only works closely with well-known artists, but also with hobbyists, amateurs, and teachers. Whether in management, the R&D department or in production, numerous HOHNER staff members are enthusiastic musicians themselves and are also closely aware of market developments. This ensures that their instruments are always attuned to the current needs of the player.
