Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

... I heard great things about Bugari. This one certainly sounds outstanding. The bass on this one like the AKKO/Jupiter, has the feeling of pulling each low notes from the ground, double bass like in some ways like others have mentioned. ... I can tell you only great things about Bugari. Between m...

Re: I thought the forum had ceased

This website requires a login and password yet it does not use https (encrypted communication). This is a BIG RED FLAG for...

Re: Reluctant reed rarely sounding

Thank you both very much - it sounds a bit daunting opening up and taking out blocks, but I will try to get my head round the instructions and have a go. It's actually a 1950s Marinucci that has been overhauled and the problem has only just started, so I am hopeful this might do the trick. Very bes...

Re: Stolen Accordion?

...This was a 3 voice Mignon Accordiola for 200.00 37 treble keys. 2 bass switches. Right. $200 for an old 3 voice Accordiola is a good price, but not a killer price indicative of a stolen instrument. (Of course all types of accordions get stolen so a sale by someone who does not play and already s...

Re: Help identifying Giulietti Accordion

This one may be a 2/5 reed but the construction is the finest and this one is made by Zero Sette in Italy. Julio Giuletti had his brands made by the finest makers in Italy and are well sought after today, and command high used prices. ... It is also worth noting that this is highly likely an instru...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

Thank you all again for your insight. I will check out the flips later tonight. I agree that the bayan has the double bass effect that is different from all other. The Italian sounds nicer and sweater. The c system Jupiter is quite expensive to my standard. I have to think hard about it The asking ...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

... I personally do not like the fact that Bayans have such growly low notes. I think of them as being so disparate as you have the bass notes so far removed (in tonality) from the treble side. It's like having a Double Bass instead of a cello in string quartet. That's a really interesting observat...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

The Jupiter on eBay France seems to have lots of switches on the treble side but only one on the bass side, why is that? Every bayan has an interesting bass section, different from Italian accordions. I am showing a picture below. The lowest 13 notes (E-E) are on one block and these are LM reeds. A...

Re: The New England Accordion Museum

Amazing is the right word indeed. What an interesting place, judging from your story and pictures. 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. I have lived not...
