Piano Accordion for ITM
My X-Whoppingly large PA is dying and euthanasia is in order. I would like to learn to make good Irish traditional music on a piano acccordion. I like the versatility of the instrument and playing oom-paa-paa bass isn’t actually mandatory. I would like to play bass when playing solo; this is one of my main reasons for trying to learn to play ITM well on the PA. As far as sessions, well, I’m not that popular anyway.
I’d like to downsize to a 72 or 80 bass with 34 keys. Three voice treble seems to be the standard with 5 registers. Is there anything unusual that I should look for that is best for ITM? Would a 60 bass box present a big disadvantage? I was looking at this one http://www.harmoniky.cz/en/accordions/15-arnaldo-35 , although I can’t find anyone who even sells it, let alone info about it. Any info, perspectives, tangents and even humor are welcome.
