CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
The Falcon accordion I have up for sale is NOT an E. It's an F. Never tried to play along with anyone. Was TOLD it was an E when I bought it. Just checked it at Cory McCauley's suggestion and it IS in the Key of F.
LOW "F" ( bel0w the C, Bb, G boxes.) o0r High "F" above C and D boxes ?
High. It was built with the previous owner's wife's voice in mind.
I do not think the Low F (and high G) keys even exist.
The high bank reeds of an F accordion are as high as reeds go, and conversely, the low bank reeds of a G accordion are as low as could be.
But then, I've been proven to be wrong more than once :)
Ed Poullard built a low F box a while back. I have no idea how one pumps air into such a windjammer.
LOW F boxes have been made.
As to the Poullard..
How about MMMH ?
Or MMH? 3 stopper.
Or MM ? 2 stopper.
I may have imagined it, but I thought I had heard of a high G made not long ago. I had tried to order a set of high G from Binci by request, and they do not make them.
