The Hohner Tex Mex accordion is a fantastic mid-budget choice! It has a good handling, easy button placement, and looks professional. It provides consistent, clear sound, making it great for both studio and live use. I mainly use the Tex Mex for recording, miking it with a pair of pencil condensers, and sometimes sampling this accordion to use in different genres. All in all I'm very satisfied with this product and my overall purchase!
