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.
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…
