What an ******* response. More great music has been made ( by Cajuns) on Hohners than any other maker.
A "real" box. Get a life you elitist millennial Euro trash twat.
I have owned several "hand made" ( there is no other way to make an accordeon) Cajun boxes. Without exceptions they were, at best, folk art to be hung on the wall.
I own several (15) Castagnaris, look them up and check the prices, and still prefer Hohner HA 114 models for Cajun playing
Fair enough Johnny Choda, the Hohner 114 is one fine instrument. It would be nice to have it cajun tuned though.´Ive never played a Louisiana handmade so of course I might be an elitist millennial Euro trash **** without a life but also heres a few quotes from yourself
"Cajun Tuning is tuning bey a Cajun.. As a Cajun Accordeon is one made by a Cajun."
- Johnny Choda
"Gabbanelli does not make a "cajun" accordeon.
Only a Cajun can make a Cajun Accordeon"
- Johnny Choda
So Ive gotten the hold of a 2021 black beauty accadian and Im telling you this is the real deal. I do like the hohner 114 its an exelent beginners accordion and if retuned its a pretty spectacular instrument, the reads are just great. However the acadian make it look like a model T ford next to a ferrari... so please be so kind as to suck my balls in hell Johnny Coda.
I enjoy my old Germany made 114 very much (same older look as the one pictured above). I play it often enough in addition to my Le Capitaine and Martin. Sometimes it has the "right" sound for particular songs. I know Savoy would recommend them as a "first" accordion and would "cajun" tune them. Don't know if he still does.
