Re: New acoustic piano accordions with built in mikes

Well... I guess it was my mistake to place the electronics so close to the plug... It could have been anywhere and I chose the worst position... that should be an easy fix but I doubt it will work right away: my stuff is a little further away from the jack as yours, but I had some of the wireless b...

Re: New acoustic piano accordions with built in mikes

I just installed a mic system in my bass accordion (not the Sennheiser but a cheaper one) and I replaced all the signal carrying wiring by shielded wiring and still when I plug in my G10 wireless transmitter which is then right next to the electronics there is interference. (bummer) yes those 2.4gh...

Re: I don't like that

I was playing that same song in a band couple of months ago wearing a three-piece suit in bright orange with little Dutch flags painted on my cheeks.

Very serious affair with the King's birthday and all :mrgreen:

Re: accordions on planes...

Jeeze, yes, I know bags get thrown around but actually seeing it is always shocking! I had a nice Hohner Morino IV smashed at Amsterdam airport coming back from Boston. I watched it being thrown from the plane cargo hold down onto a trolly and my heart sank. Sure enough there was splinters of wood ...

Re: Irish tuning

I don't know why your Concerto has 8 cents tremolo which is very low. Standard German tuning is 14 cents. (Standard Italian is 16 cents.) I don't know how many cents Irish tuning is. it's not, my tuner marked it -8 +8 so I guess 16, I can't reminder the last time we talked about this but it sounds ...

Irish tuning

what would be the best tuning / registering to "sound" Irish? This is for an upcoming FLogging Molly tribute, thinking about using my Concerto and as it needs a tuning anyway, might as well tweak the sound. For now it's still standard German(?) 8 cents tremolo. I have a feeling I could sound more Ir...

Re: Bugari owners

I have been reading up on the subject of reeds a little bit across the internet. But this is more complex than I thought :!: There is no universal quality standard or garantee. But there are huge price differences. Maybe most interesting to know is which type of machine produced reeds is best? At le...
