The tradition of manufacturing of accordions in the Czech Republic is more then 100 years long. Apart from various small workshops accordions were manufactured in two famous companies: the producer of key and button accordions Keberlle Ho?ovice and the producer of heligon and diatonic accordions Josef Hlavá?ek Louny. All producers were using reeds from Italy or Dix Gera reeds.
After the World War II. production of reeds was started in Josef Hlavá?ek Louny factory. The first experience with production of reeds was gained here based on new technology - the merger between the Dix Gera reeds technology and Italian technology.
In 1984 the completely new factory was built. The factory was equipped with the most modern machinery of Swiss and German origin with new pressing and grinding technologies.
Lately the reed production started to use the experience of the long term research and development on very good machines. Professional skills and experience of well-trained personnel and a long tradition of manufacturing combined with cooperation with research and developmental workplaces result into production of the reeds with a very good sound and with guarantee of good quality.
