The Forum Is Changing
Hi folks. Shortly this forum will be migrating to different software and, in addition, we will also have a new website address. To migrate all the posts, users, etc. will take a little time so there will be some downtime on the forum while this is done. I am trying to do this sooner rather than later so it may not be possible to give you prior notice of the downtime.
Once migrated to our new address, visitors to www.accordionists.co.uk will be automatically redirected to the new website address.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but the change to the software has now become really necessary.

Re: Any diatonic players here ?

if I were to buy new I would also go for the dryer variety (maybe a Castagnari, the one with the 18 basses)

Re: Any diatonic players here ?

Yes the Goudbrand (as we call them here) is quite popular, and a whole lot quieter than my stuff, which is from the 1930/40's. But I played one before and it is not dead quiet. But if you are in an untreated room and your harmonica is some distance of your microphone it will be better as well.

Re: Any diatonic players here ?

It's hard to pinpoint exactly what is causing the clacking anyway. There is a great deal coming from the pallets hitting the soundboard and some of the buttons hitting the sides of their holes. And some of the slack/movement of the mechanism (iron on iron). I don't know but I guess a newer model wil...

I still can't order with them because they haven't given me an account. Even after a couple of emails (one in Italian). I ended up going through my service guy again.

They did sent me their Happy Newyear email, so that is nice.

Re: accordion size

I play only 72 nowadays and I'm a happy camper :mrgreen:

Re: New Roland V accordion coming............

There is a sonic difference between the EVO and the 8x to my ears and to the ears of many others. I used to think that difference was attributed to the wood body of the EVO but then again, all accordions are made of wood. I heard another theory to explain the difference: Take 8x speakers and put th...
