Jerry, it's a place I hope to visit one day soon. I think there may be a connection between the owner and the person I know who sells and repairs accordions.
I have tentative plans to go back in September, why not make a trip here to Montreal and you could come down with me for a weekend?

Re: The New England Accordion Museum

The second building has loads of instruments that should be played, not displayed in a museum. You do mention that he sells accordions so these must be among the ones for sale I guess. Yes, all the accordions in the 2nd bullding are for sale. He also has a ton of music that I just glanced at but th...

Re: The New England Accordion Museum

Suggestions include buying 2 seats beside each other or being smart amout it, getting to know the train layout and knowing what seats may have more room in front of your knees.

Re: The World of Russian Bayans (CBA)

The thing that impresssed me most was how fast the Bayan reeds responded, there was no audible delay between pressing and hearing the note. On the Vignoni reeds... wow, that was almost unusable! Those reeds just of themselves needed a lot of work.

Re: How many boxes you got and your favorites?

Having a Roland makes adding bass markers a breeze, but it's especially nice on a Free Bass, for me, it is important. I added a little rhinesone on every "C" of my chosen Free Bass style on the Roland. Free Bass on both the Roland and Hohner Morino is going to come back in to my life this fall/winte...
