Hohner is owned by KHS http://khs-america.com/contact/

Suzuki USA is owned by KMC, a division of Jam Industries

Anyone who says otherwise is itching for a fight.

Oh, and I am still the authorized warranty repair guy for Suzuki USA.
Did I mention the one year warranty?

Your repairs on my low D and the chromatic are holding up very well indeed Gnarly!

Yes, I did an out of warranty repair on a Manji for you that turned out great! Draw 1 left the building . . .
This thread was started in response to a post on the MBH Facebook page, a fellow was claiming that I had been fired.
There are two guys working harmonicas for Suzuki now--Daron Stinton was given a job working for the new company, you will see him at SPAH (and NAMM!). And then there's me--I am an independent contractor, which has been my status pretty much the whole time, except that my contract is now with KMC.
So they are having me cover warranty repairs and issues--like customers who buy chromatics and don't really know how to play them--I can usually solve their problems over the phone.
I am quoting Rockin' Ron, without permission . . .
"wow, you fixed a manufacture defect (says Mickey) over the phone. You are a sorcerer. "
Sorry Mickey if I have outed you.

Ownership matters, but not as much as the folks that you have to deal with.
Like Ron, or Brendan, or Joe Spiers--or me!
(see how I did that . . .)
