Odd question, but a while back my uncle gave me an accordion randomly, and I enjoyed playing it. However, it was a full-sized accordion, which is really intimidating as a beginner so I never got very good at playing it.
I am still interested in learning though, so I was wondering if anyone might know of some place that might have a smaller accordion for sale? I am thinking like a 12 or 48 button-bass with keyboard if possible.
I'm not trying to break the bank, so hopefully used if possible! Thanks everyone.
Aight folk, I got a deal for a Hohner which I think has 48 bass for 70 bucks. The price is good and I will start learning so I am gonna buy a 120 bass later as I learn. What are the things I should check on the accordion?
I remember watching a documentary when I was younger and this scene had me in stitches laughing, but I can’t remember his name nor find him online. However, the memory is very hazy, for all I know I could’ve dreamt it! IIRC he had black/dark hair. I know this a niche question but, if I’m not mad, this was quite a famous scene.

My friends gave me a beautiful old accordion (Universal Electrovox) that has many different MIDI options. I would like to use it with headphones to play without bothering the neighbors.It has a stereo jack, but it seems it is for input only as it is written "mikes aux.".I found on the web that these accordions are usually a MIDI controller by themselves, but I am not sure. Even so, it seems to be a MIDI controller by the size of the capacitors it has inside (picture).The original receipt from 1987 lists a pedal and an amplifier. I think that they plug it on the pedal and the pedal is then plugged to the amplifier.But I also found that the pedal was usually just for the power and volume control while playing. That's why I'm wondering if it is possible to plug it directly to an amplifier.I couldn't find any manual on the internet.
As I have 4 volumes for the MIDI part, I'm thinking about using a multimeter on each pin of the 6pin DIN female to check out which pin is passing data, what i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I believed this was a real thing, then I Googled and turned up nothing, so I assume it is a fiction in the show. LOL. Anyone else feel foolish about believing anything from this show that turned out to be false?
I'm new to this sub but would love to contribute with my accordion :)
