De-Clubbing the Club

Does anyone have experience with de-clubbing a Hohner club pattern accordion, to make it a traditional pattern? Doesn't seem like a huge deal, change some reeds in the middle of the pattern, but maybe I'm missing something. I know it gets done, and since I've ended up with four of the things...including two Preciosas, which are, of course, precious...and I don't want to confuse my playing more than it is...changing it makes sense.

Glen, I'm sure you've done this.

De-Clubbing the Club - it can be done!

I don't know a lot about the details, but it can and has been done. I think you are right that it is not a big deal.


Re: De-Clubbing the Club - it can be done!

isn't it just one button?

Re: Re: De-Clubbing the Club - it can be done!

Yes, there is one button that plays the same note on the push and the pull. I think it is the one in the center of either the inner row or the middle row. All you do is retune that one button.

i think that is an 'extra' button

so you take it out and move all the other ones
down one, and you have one blank one at the top

This might help. Then again, maybe not. Perhaps somewhere else on this site.

Re: Re: De-Clubbing the Club

Yes, it does help - I remember now that I look at that chart.

On the middle row, there is a note that plays C on both the push and the pull. All you have to do to de-club it is to change the C on the pull to a D. That's all it takes.

Glad it helped. I figured it would, but it confused me.
