Re: Le Capitaine for sale

What do you mean by "CAJUN" tuned ?
Tuned by a "CAJUN"?..or one of the many "just" tunings also used by Cajuns, and is it dry tuned or other?

Swamp Cypress, Monterey Cypress, Spanish, Mediterranean, other?

Binci #2 reeds, sourced from Miller ?

Best of luck on the sale.

3rd and 7th notes flatted
about 15c. This offers some temperment balance. Ask Danny if he is of Cajun descent. Taxodium distichum. As a Luthier of 35 years, I also have fiddles, banjos, guitars
And such. As a retired engineer and analyst, lots of science stuff too.:crocodile:

Re: Le Capitaine for sale

Any pictures, Craig? I love the look of old cypress accordions.

Re: Le Capitaine for sale

Yes. I e mailed some to another player earlier. I can forward them to you. A scientist at work also doubled as the photographer and he took some shots when new. Still looking for that CD.

Re: Le Capitaine for sale

Go ahead if you don't mind. I won't be buying, but I was just interested to see. I get a lot of requests for used accordions so I can pass it on.

Re: Le Capitaine for sale

Your e mail acct kicked them back.
