Hohner is a musical instrument manufacturer with a reputation for innovative design and invention. The company was founded in Germany by Matthias Hohner in 1857, who began making harmonicas with his wife and one other employee. During the 1950s the Hohner company added a newly invented instrument they named ‘melodica’ to their catalogue. The melodica was a success, and was soon copied by several other companies around the world.
The claviola was invented by Hohner technician and designer Ernst Zacharias, inventor of the pianet and the clavinet. It was put on the market in 1996, and discontinued after only a few months.
