Re: Silly question on Button accordion

Look at it closely. If there are no numbers on it, it is for strap tightening. If the numbers go up to 11, it is for volume. 😉

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

Don’t the numbers *start* at 11 on the accordion?

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

It is for dragging it along by.

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

wheel?

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

You know John, like a bodhran only smaller? 😉

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

I don’t have a wheel on my bodhran!

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

Although I am thinking very seriously about having some installed here and there.

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

I always thought it was for winding the seat up or down ?

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

It regulates the speed on mine. I was thinking of getting it replaced though as it only goes upto 100bpm on reel setting at present, anyone know where I can get a 180?

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

if you put a pencil mark on the wheel, you can use it to keep track of how many pints you have at the pub.

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

That little wheel sure seems effective at winding up the discussion page!

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

I’ve had mine converted to automatic. Instead of the wheel I have switches above the keyboard. Mostly I use Neutral but occasionally I’ll put it into Drive and away we go…

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

I’m sure it’s for controlling the amount of air entering the bellows…..

There are no silly questions in life. 🙂

Re: Silly question on Button accordion

It is for fortune-telling.
