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.

When one piccolo isn't enough

Post by Morne » Fri Oct 05, 2018 2:59 pm

In the world of the Russian Garmon there are a couple of tunings/timbres that involve two sets of piccolo reeds. These include combinations like LHH, LMHH, MMHH which are absent in the Western tradition. I don't know if there are some underground diatonic scenes where players/builders experiment with such tunings, but at least in the PA and CBA worlds this doesn't exist (as far as I know).

Here is a (Google Translated) page with a few snippets of such tunings:

And here is a longer clip of an MMHH garmon (which also includes a high reed in the bass):
