C#/D/G accordion: Both an English Melodeon and an Irish Box!

C#/D/G accordion for English and Irish Music. Two melodeons in one!

Here’s a cool custom restoration project. Following a customers suggestion, we converted a three row vintage Hohner accordion to the keys of C#/D/G.

This unusual accordion tuning has several interesting advantages. First of all it’s two different accordions in the same instrument. An English D/G melodeon and an Irish C#/D box.

transition between english and irish music with this C#/D/G accordion.

This unique C#/D/G accordion allows you to switch from a lovely, bass line driven English Morris tune into a lively Irish reel both sounding authentic on their characteristic instrument tunings.

Check out Ole’s demo of such a transition.

If we were to be sent to a lonely island and we could bring only one box then why not bring two wrapped into one…
