Re: Goodbye... And Hello to a morino VC

I am glad that you found an instrument that you are happy with, the two do look quite similar, though I would be interested in hearing it, especially the Free Bass. :) As far as the heat is concerned, Paul is right, any accordion with wax is a concern in a very hot environment. I don't think it is a...

Re: Sticky bass button

Even so that photo of the bass mechanism taken apart and not kept very firmly in the right order (presumably she did lay things down in the right order but it's easy to "trip" and ruin everything)... to me that looks like a horror picture. ... and yet no accident happened, the Morino lived to play ...

Re: Sticky bass button

A far different system from the one in my Hohner Morino... with 185 bass buttons, each rod had to be taken out individually. For my repair lady (who was very good), she said it was the most intense and time consuming work she ever did on any other accordion in all her years. A picture of a part of h...

Re: 1920's Casali Verona Piano Accordion

I am sure that it is from an esthetic point of view. This is one of those industry failed experiments that I find it particularly beautiful, however unless it was like 75% ready to be played, I don't think that I personally would invest money in getting it restored, however, if I had the necessary s...

Re: 1920's Casali Verona Piano Accordion

It pretty much always has been this way in the past 20+ years. Repairs are expensive because repairers are rare and good repairers even rarer... not to mention that if parts are needed they are pretty much non-existent! This is why a lot of this is DIY, and most of those are likely done at a lower l...

Re: PA with double keyboard

To answer the question of the OP, this is one of those failed experiments made by a popular or well known accordion manufacturer. The left hand notes are single notes. Honestly, even if it was in very good condition at 77 pounds it is about 75 pounds overpriced. Sadly, this is more a novelty accordi...

Re: The 'Cordeen and Me: Coming to Terms With Myron Floren

Anyway, we American piano accordionists wound up with "Lady of Spain". Well, that and "Beer Barrel Polka". And "Chicken Dance". I don't generally mind the cliché and Beer Barrel Polka and Chicken Dance are at least fun for me to play because I can really fool around with the people on the dance flo...
