Re: Le Capitaine

I'm not one to compare. Outside of a cheap E Bay box, My Le Capitaine is the only other box I've held. There are not many players where I live and life is too fast a pace for many here to even consider a gathering. I can tell you the workmanship is excellent, Binci reeds, well tuned. Danny used butt joints, which some dislike. Being an engineer and violin maker, I can tell you there is only the cosmetic factor on that. Butt joints are extremely strong. Those in doubt can request data which I will gladly provide.
I can e mail you a photo.
If you speak to Danny, send him my regards.
Cypress box.

Re: Re: Le Capitaine

Can you send more info on who is Danny, where does he make his accordians, and how does one get in touch with him. The Le Capitaine sounds like a box that would make a little more ummph than a Chinese wet tuned...Thanks
