Re: Problems removing the Spindle

... I did the WD40 solution and it worked! Thanks to everyone! Glad to hear that worked! Don't forget to remove any excess lubricant before putting everything back together. Accordions do not like any type of oil because as others have said it makes dust stick to it and in the end makes things worse.

Re: which bass reeds?

It is not all that surprising that the holes on both reed blocks line up. Standardisation results in cost reduction. For instance the same register sliders and the same base boards (wood or aluminium) can be used. Earlier I pointed at a YouTube video where the bass reed block on a Vignoni accordion ...

Re: Bass button stuck fix?

In most cases when a bass button gets stuck it is because it is slightly bent. Make sure the button goes through the hole completely straight. However, this happens mostly with buttons on the outer row (bent by either the hand or wrong handling in case or bag), and less frequently with buttons in ot...

Re: Wireless Audio Transmitter and Receiver

Xvive dongles run on Li-ion non-removable rechargeable battery, and they don't have auto-select (they have 4 manual channels). So you can run four pairs of them side by side. You can also run two senders to one receiver. The charm of them is the receiver is also tiny and rechargeable. So no power c...

Re: LMMM with high reed?

Is it possible to retune from LMMH to LMMM, must need some deep scraping This cannot be done through just tuning. It requires replacing the reeds and thus also reed plates by bigger ones, and it is likely that these will not fit on the existing reed block without changing the holes... WIth luck the...

Re: Hello from Holland

Yes technically speaking holland is a province inside the netherlands in the north west Actually there are two provinces, called "Noord Holland" and "Zuid Holland". There is no province called just "Holland". Since you refer to north west that would then refer to Noord Holland. But when far abroad ...

Re: Hello from Holland

Hi Peter. Welcome to the forum. I am in Holland (not from Holland) and am too lazy to convert from PA to CBA. I have a B system lounging behind the sofa but only get it out occasionally to make sure it’s still working. There appeares to be plenty of B system accordions in The Netherlands so that wa...

Re: Crucianelli

I know little about button accordions... but it's a beauty... and looks HUGE! I have often seen Crucianelli button boxes and they always looked huge to me. They are especially thick, which means your left hand has to reach quite far to reach the bass buttons. Maybe someone here knows why they are s...

Re: Hello from Holland

Welcome! I too am from the Netherlands (not Holland). My wife and I switched from piano accordion to button accordion 10 years ago (C system). No regrets. No study books either. We just learned to play everything we played before. It's hard in the beginning because you go from being a decent player ...
