Same Hohner box – very different tunings

Custom button accordion tuning: same Hohner box, very different sound! Listen to a side by side comparison below.

Recently I have fitted a vintage black Hohner box with a set of new Super Dural Reeds.

The tuning I choose was a medium wet tuning with +-10ct A.

Following the new owners wish, the box was re-tuned to a much wetter – Paolo like – tremolo. I am quite surprised what difference that makes but have a listen for yourself:

Personally, I love that new sound! So from now on, this particular – non-standard – tuning has a firm part in my tuning repertoire.
