hacking an ole accordion

"Wow, I love it, tell me more.  So what do you use for the contacts?  Also, in the photo I saw of this you had something like an Arduino proximity sensor.  How does that fit into the solution?"

Thanks Daniel. I'm a Sax/Clarinet player and beginner accordion player. Have accordion players in a couple of my bands and love the instrument!

Will enjoy following all info and happenings through this site.

All the best, Pam

Thanks, Mr. Kott.  Thanks for letting me join the group here.  I guess accordion is one of those things on my bucket list that I have decided now would be a good time to tackle.  I am particularly interested in the Roland V-Accordions - look like a bunch of fun, lots of different sounds, settings, etc. - I don't think I would ever get bored with it.  Do you happen to know anyone out in my neck of the woods that plays accordion that would be willing to give me a few in person pointers?  I know I live deep in the heart of "oom pah pah" country (I lumped it all together in a category - no offense to anyone) so I'm quite certain there is someone out here.

I am quite sure I will have some questions as I go along.  But first, I must get an accordion.  Back to my research and decision making....  I plan to visit Heritage Arts tomorrow and have my first real look at an accordion.  I'm very excited!

Thanks! I generally can't make weekend events because of work. However, I generally take a vacation day for the Squeeze-Off we are holding this weekend, Sat the 21st. We really would like some folks on the Net to come by. There are usually players from Dallas area, Houston area and several from Central Tx ... however, Austin accordionists never seem to want to come north on I-35. That said, there will be food, jams, accordions for sale and a Roland rep there with some of the newest reedless offerings ... AND, it's all free!!! Try make it or tell some of your friends about it.

Hi Mr Kott
I will only be in Dallas for a few days. I hoped to have a lesson and make a connection for possible skype lessons.
I can't read music but can play 5 or 6 tejano traditional songs I can play nearly all major scales on the gcf diatonic, and some with added third and added sixth.
I wish my muscle memory was better but alas I am 41 yrs old .
I have however played guitar for 25yrs.
I have absolutely fallen in love with the accordion I am obsessed with it. Thanks for your reply.

Hi Daniel kott,
Im coming to visit my relatives in Dallas in early November
Im trying to organize some face to face lessons.
I couldn't buy a new hohner here in Sydney Australia the hohner rep only imports harmonicas.
No one plays or teaches button here.
There are piano accordion player's and teachers and alot of the old Italian community that migrated here play.
I have been learning tejano or tex mex from dvds like flaco Jimenez homespun dvd.
I would love to have some lessons via skype
Thanks for letting me join your site.

Thank you Daniel for your comment.  I am new to playing an accordion and while browsing I came across your very interesting site.

I'm living in Ireland (Co. Clare) where accordion playing is quite popular, however, mostly if not all are of the diatonic type, whereas, my interest is in the piano accordion and Jimmy Shand being my favourite style.

My accordion is an old but in mint condition Cintioli 120 Bass which was especially made for the Italian Olympics of 1960.  I had planned to sell it on eBay and buy a smaller accordion but as Christmas in approaching I am going to hang on to it and save the pennies until later.

Cheers for now and thank you for the welcome

My name is Jeannie Adkins and I became a member today.  The reason is that I have a Hohner MPER AL II M Accordion, that I have researched for days and cannot fine any history or value on this accordion. I have spoken to collectors, distributors and it has led me to Texas Accordion Net.  The accordion was label just as I indicated.  MPER AL II M.  It seems that the i's were left off (not taken off) the spelling for Imperial.  I have photos that show the details very well.  It is in excellent condition and it has its own case.  I have found the Imperial III M and it is identical to the Hohner MPER AL II M.  I think that it may have been especially made for someone as one of a kind, because it is so differently label from any of the Hohner accordions.  It dates back to early 1930's or late 1920's.  I have included some photos for your review and I have others but I cannot get them to upload properly.  Please, I would very much appreciate any assistance and or information that you can share with me.Hohner%20Accordion%20Photo%205.docxHohner%20Accordion%20Photo%204.docxHohner%20Accordion%20Photo%203.docxHohner%20Accordion%20Photo%202.docxHohner%20Accordion%20Photo%201.docx
