What we love about the Clavinet C

The Clavinet C is the precursor to the D6 and is when Hohner started to hit its stride with the Clavinet’s design. A noteworthy claim to fame for the C that it is the model featured on Stevie Wonder’s studio recording of Superstition. This model of Clavinet is great for fans of the D6 and are seeking more vibe/colour than the latter E7 models. –Sound sample coming soon!

Clav C OG-13

The electronics feature the original germanium transistors that are part of the heart of the C’s signature sound. The preamp circuit was serviced with replacement capacitors that we selected to bring out the most of the Clavinet’s tone and keep the noise low. The C’s switches allow you to choose between the “neck/bridge” pickups and using them simultaneously “in/out” of phase.
