The soundproofing in the 3000 is super-stealth, compared to the lesser padded 2000. If disturbing the neighbors is your concern, the 3000 is one of the quietest ones around.Perhaps due to the entire frame wrapped from top to bottom. The 2000 is still a bit loud. But nothing a solid felt pad can't resolve.
Bottom line: if you're after that elusive Hermes touch, but are not enchanted by the 3000 design and want a traditional look with some design flair, get the 2000. One of the best typewriters ever made is a quality Swiss product. Great for typing fast, keys are highly responsive, and the carriage is light and snappy. Some say the Hermes 2000 is more durable and reliable than the Hermes 3000. The body is solid metal.
It comes with the original case, which is in good working order. The Typewriter shows cosmetic signs of use, typical of a vintage typewriter. Please see images taken from all angles. The Typewriter is fully checked/serviced and functions just as intended.This would make an excellent typewriter for someone planning extensive writing.
