B/C/C# britsh chromatic accordions
Do anyone know if any manufacturers still produce the B/C/C# accordions with stradella bass system (british chromatic accordion).
They seem to be the most popular ones among scottish button accordionist (e.g. Jimmy Shand).
But I see that lots of contemporary players are switching to two-row B/C (eg. Fergie Macdonald), is this because you don’t get new instruments with three rows and stradella bass anymore? Or even B/C/C# accordions at all?
Do anyone know webssites or shops in in scotland/england were these accordions wold be available second hand?
I’ve heard there is a annual festival for collectors of Jimmy Shands own designed accordion model for hohner - the shand marino - is this true? - and is this and similar events a place to go for getting one of these accordions?
