Re: Plastic components

I sure wouldn't want a plastic accordion, but the plastic rockers is definitely something I've pondered. Many other builders already use metal keyboard mechanisms, and if ever make another with more than one treble row or the base buttons on the frame, ti will be of metal mechanics, just due to the problems I had with wood. There's some inherent issues with wood rockers that could be avoided with a more stable material, and it would still have to be fit by hand, and once painted, no one would know it's not wood. No one seems to mind plastic or metal buttons.

I may be wrong, but I don't see a quality accordion not at least being fit and finished by hand. I think a more likely issue is some day the Chinese may decide to make better quality instruments, and if so, all American instrument builders are in trouble, because I'm pretty sure the Chinese are capable.
