Barronelli Button Accordian 2EXTRA
space

Okay, we don’t really have EXTRA space, but I couldn’t resist this little Barronelli Button Accordion in the key of C.

(A button accordion is a type of accordion on which the melody-side keyboard consists of a series of buttons rather than piano-style keys.)

The original bellows are decent at holding air but understandably show wear. It is in the key of C with 7 treble buttons and 2 bass buttons.  I just couldn’t resist.

Rochelle C-1 ConcertinaThe Barronelli is meant to amuse the senses until the C-1 Rochelle Concertina arrives. 

 

It is a beauty, and we are excited to experiment with a new rudimentary sound.

Our upcoming CD, Creekwood Crow, has a decidedly Folk feel, and it really came as a surprise to us.  So, this instrument felt like a natural experimental progression.  The Rochelle model (2nd generation) is a 30-button, key of C/G.  Black celluloid finish, white plastic buttons, riveted action, Italian reeds (Cagnoni) and 7-fold bellows.

    Hello, I read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one, and I was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
