... gotta LOVE the accordion !!! ...
As an "acoustic" accordionist, I find it difficult to accept
that the Roland digital "accordion" can be described as an
accordion, in the real sense of the word. Yes it is an ingenious
invention and has very high quality sounds. I think it is a
betrayal of the real accordion which is made with wood, steel
reeds,bellows and with great craftsmanship and a lot of love.
I do have midi fitted to my accordion and it does facilitate
instant backing if I want to do solo gigs. I still somehow
feel "unclean" about electonics invading my lovely accordion.
I do however, feel a bit better now, having had my long overdue rant about
electronic reedless accordions.
