Re: 9-Button

sorry to dredge up the past....

(not really)

was wondering about 9 button cajun boxes....
specifically the time period that John E Hebert was building boxes....

and is it 'normal' or 'customary' for a 9 button to be a little higher priced than an equalivent 10 button?

thanks y'all

Re: 9-Button

I guess paying more for less seems logical for me if it's a specially built instrument, more work & designing things differently.

As for button one pull on a C instrument .. i prefer a 4th, so F instead of G, you can play partly an F major chord for backing up songs & soloists. Example:
