Anybody ever heard of these? I guess they're made in TX.
Check out the link above.
Did you e-mail him?
I did email him to get some info on his accordions and see how much he usually builds for.
Never heard of him. That might be a warning right there. And the website is pretty shy on details.
Mr. Brisco is for real. He is originally from Church Point and retired from what is now Bayer in Bay Town TX. I see him and his brother every year in LeJeune Cove for Mardi Gras, but I have never played his accordion. Nice guy. Good people.
If Cory knows him and vouches for him, he must be legit. If he replys to you, would you ask him if he minds posting a little more info on his products on this forum, that is, of course, if that is acceptable to him and to Joanie. And Dwight is right. he needs more clout in his website. One page just can't tell the story. Does sound like an interesting alternative, though, especially for us Texas boys.
no reply from Longhorn Accordions yet but if he does I will definately ask him for more information.
As a guy who took one whole summer course at Universiyt of Texas, Austin, and who's neighbor mysteriously raises longhorns in Upstate New York, I am intrigued by the idea of an accordion with a profile of a longhorn imprinted on the face plate!
(I'm not sure that's what this guy does, but my imagination took over)
What a great name for a Texas made accordion.
And isn't it good to hear of makers cropping up who you never heard of? As long as the quality is there.
If you get a reply , ask him who does the tuning ?
