    a top-spec new Pigini or Borsini piano accordion can easily set you back well over £5000. [USD 7800 ]

    It's not a very authentic-gypsy/musette solution,
    but i'd be tempted to look at a MIDI modified keyboard
    & some nice sampled sounds, for a LOT less.....
  • What about the button ones...are they about the same...

    There was an accordian festival here week before last which also hosted the 66th coupe mondiale .... some pretty amazing players

    Ludovic was here, unfortunately I didn't see him, and I am not sure in what capacity.

    Love the video, Brandon. Looks like you're enjoying the Petosa CBA. It has great sound, esp. with the two low reeds separated as you mention.

    Jazzaferri: Too bad you didn't get to see Ludovic while he was in Victoria. I would have loved to come over for that. I had a friend from Vancouver that went and said all of the players were amazing. He esp. liked Renzo Ruggieri. I think Ludovic may have been at the Coupe in part (all?) because he was sponsored by Roland. He played a Roland and gave a workshop on Roland accordions.

  • I saw him at DFNW both onstage and in jam...on one night he and another accordion player played the fastest Mtgne St Genevieve I have ever heard. North of 300 bpm I think. It was quick tapping in cut time

    Yeah, the other player might've been Julien Labro from Hot Club of Detroit -- he was there that year also. In the Sunday night Djammin' concert, he and Ludovic played the most amazing version of Libertango. Looked like they were having a great time playing off of each other.

    I would like to add to this discussion that I believe there is another piece of the puzzle for the Marcel Loeffler amazing sound. Not only is his instrument double bassoon, and not only are they both in the tone chamber, I believe his instrument also has amplisound. Which is an extra way to extend the tone chamber resonance. I played an instrument like this made by the same maker as his accordion. And that seemed to be the secret sauce.
