Great look, excellent sound and good playability

johnomally, 24.10.2009
I picked up the Höfner HM 83 two weeks ago and I have to say that I am more enthusiastic every day. First to the optical - the HM 83 is really great here. The bright tone ants (similar to the maple) and the finely grained spruce top are perfectly matched. The spruce blanket hardly reveals any irregularities.

The guitar is very well processed, only on the side of the handleboard one sees where the frets were broken easy quirks which were overpainted. This was the case with my original guitar as well as with the exhibition model.

In the playability the HM83 is ideal for me. Playing is easy. A fact that may be the slightly asymmetrical shape of the neck profile (best seen at the base of the throat). This is not on the website or the catalog, but was mentioned in a test and is actually good to remember.

The best is however the sound (and I think that the spruce blanket further developed). Very clear treble and powerful, warm bass give the HM83 a full round sound which is in the price class of its like seeks (I have before the purchase so some guitars which were much more expensive and the HM83 can really keep up well).

All in all, I am really satisfied and will have a lot of fun. Who wants to see the HM83 times in "Action", can see this on youtube in one of my videos. Simply enter "TheLarghetto" and "Tarrega Lagrima". Have fun

A dream...

Stefan84, 22.10.2011
The Höfner HM83 is a wonderful instrument. In terms of price performance, it is even the best concert guitar (in this price segment) I've ever held.

The bright body is an absolute sight and gives the guitar a "fresh" look. The simple but elegant design is very appealing.

The processing is top! There is nothing more to be said here. The only drawback: Light "rattling" the A-string if not directly next to the covenant is taken (but I have already observed with Hanika guitars).

Now to the sound: Here the HM83 impresses with warm, voluminous basses. The mids are well balanced and the treble very fine in the sound. Here are no wishes left. Also the guitar goes very loud if you want ...
