Re: Re: Am selling triple row GCF Corona IIIR

Some of the older players used a two reed Corona.. Boozoo played a Corona and an Erica.. Ambrose Sam played a 2.5 row Hohner Club model ( in one video I saw of him at least ).. I may be wrong.

Queen Ida.. probably plays the Corona II because it is light...and more manageable for her stature.. ??

Al Rapone plays a Corona II, Big Hat Filds plays a Corona II, and Terrance Simien plays a Corona II..

Most zydeco players and listeners want to hear a three or four reed box.. two reed is for tex mex ( tejano and conjunto ) ? But modern Norteno prefers 3 to 4 reed boxes.. ( Ramon Ayala style )...


Re: Re: Re: Am selling triple row GCF Corona IIIR


Do you think if you play a Corona II but pump up the bass ( low ) setting on the PA mixer channel you could make them sound more Zydeco ' growly '.?

And what is Terrance doing with that cover ' thing' over the face plate of his Corona II..presume it's some tailor made mic pick up??..refer photos in link below.

Can you check that address again for Terrance. Can't seem to get through to it.
