Looking for a D accordion

Hello! I'm in the market for a handmade LA accordion in the key of D and I'd like to buy a used one if possible. Preference would be a Savoy or Martin but I'm not opposed to other builders. Anyone trying to get rid of a D box?

Re: Looking for a D accordion

J.E. Doucet has a new one listed on Craigslist in Lafayette for $1750. I have played some of his accordions, and can assure you he builds a nice instrument. Check out link #1 below.

Ah thanks, I'll keep that in mind if I don't hear from anyone else here

Re: Looking for a D accordion

J Doucet makes an excellent accordeon.. and $1750 is a bargain.

Keep in mind, he makes parts for other accordeon "makers" (assemblers).
