Vincent, what is the going price for such an accordion? If I pay you an extra $100, would you put the "Name Brand" that I'm about to tell you at the top of the reed board, and Vincent Accordions at the bottom.
Made In Louisiana
Be warned! This may make you a millionaire!
I know all of these request from everyone are very aggravating, but at least think on my request.. If you make the "CHAMPION" brand.....They will come.......and so will I my friend. As far as I know, "CHAMPION" brand has not been patented as a name on accordions yet.
All we'll need is 3 distinct accordion players to always play the "Champion" brand in public. The same way Wayne Toups and Walter Mouton play on the "Falcon" brand exclusively. Before you know it, people that don't even play accordion will be buying a "Champion" just to have one their house. (A phenomenon similar to what happened with the rice cooker or the Magnelite Pot in Cajun Country, Lousiana).
Do you realize how many freakin Falcon accordions were sold just because Wayne Toups plays on them?!! So many in fact, that Falcon was willing to give accordions away to Wayne as long as he'd remain a living, breathing, walking advertisement for Falcon accordions. Walter Mouton played the part of the wise and crafty Grand Master and Wayne...his hip and popular student. Now do you see how you get to be one of the "Big Three"? You've got to play on the "Pride" and "Vanity" of the people. Works every time.
