Different approaches to wet tuning


I have another one for techies.

What is your preferred approach to wet tuning?

1/ Tuning "X%" wet (same pitch difference throughout the buttons).
2/ Tuning all the buttons for the same frequency of tremolo (the lower buttons then have more percentage of tremolo than the higher pitched buttons). I've heard it referred has progressive wet tuning by Larry Miller.
3/ Tuning for more tremolo the higher you go in pitch (little to no tremolo on the lower buttons and faster tremolo on the higher pitched buttons). This seems to be the traditional approach for trad music other than cajun.

Also, how wet can you get?
Like, if I wanted my accordion to sound like Joe Falcon of Joel Sonnier, how many "percent" should I ask for?
