Re: New Wisconsin Accordionist (and Technique Question)

Just to tidy this bit up - because I can't believe that one poster meant exactly what he said, his nomenclature may differ from mine: Rule 1 - Do not change direction while holding down a key - whether a tie or just a single note - is like taking a breath half way though a word in a song. Rule 2 - D...

Re: Unusual side effect of learning PA - want a piano now!

Good for you! While a digital accordion would be a nice way of practicing silently there's quite a cost involved! Might be worth considering a Casio SA-46, the keys are normal PA size and you can either play it "piano wise" or vertically in accordion position. It has a headphone socket. A...

Re: Hohner Piano Accordion: Info Request

Doesn't that look like an old Verdi I to some of you? Nope - maybe Verdi but not Verdi I - I's didn't come in 120 bass. Hohners from this period tend to look much alike to me, so if no model name on there it's any bodies' guess. I'm happy to be informed but for non-playability & value reasons n...

Re: Accordion Repair Course

Thank-you for sharing! Me, I'd be very interested if I was at least on the same side of the pond. Too bad they don't do something similar like this in the USA or Canada, I might be pretty easily convinced to attend such a course as I know this interests me. :) Maybe a business opportunity for someo...

Re: Hohner Piano Accordion: Info Request

Sorry to say, George isn't going to be far out, if a little pessimistic; when it's a charity shop, eBay seems to get bit better prices. Be careful saying it's in good condition unless you add the word 'cosmetic' - a bass button missing is not good and is likely indicative of it not being serviced an...

Re: Bellows sizes?

But even with a mismatching corner profile, the old adadge that "Beggars can't be choosers!" does ring true. Plus; the instrument in question would never win a beauty competition anyway. Yep It crossed my mind that 'I ain't that bothered for this one..' was a possible if not probable repl...

Re: New member from Minnesota

Thanks all for the warm welcome! One thing I noticed is that my left arm and shoulder is sore playing the FR7 so much the past few days. The bellows seem to require more effort than my Petosa which I played tonight and it was like nothing. The bellows 'issue' with Roland accordions is well known, b...

Re: Bellows sizes?

Just to complicate things, it may not look 'right' if the corners don't match your wood, too.
If you've got time on your hands & the inclination you can make your own fairly cheaply.. :idea:
