Hi Striker,

The 72 Bass is a useful size, especially if you play folk music. I can only recommend that you contact a reputable dealer, which is preferable to some other methods when seeking your perfect instrument.

Of course, as always, the use to which you put your accordion will dictate, or at least inform, your choice of instrument.

Good Luck,

Stephen.

Adding to Stephen's advice, a 60 Bass is mostly just as useful. 60 & 72 are usually the same except that the 60 doesn't have the diminished row...something rarely used and easily simulated. The problem is that many 60's treble side are lacking keys, read blocks and couplers, however that may not be a problem with folk music

Particularly since the 60s usually <I><s>do</I> have the diminished row and use it to simulate the (<I><s>actually</I> missing) major seventh row. Well enough that few players realize the difference.

To wit: in the place of C7 in a 60-bass instrument is what is called/located Gdim in a 72-bass instrument.

E-G-Bb: Gdim on 72 bass, C7 on 60 bass
C-E-Bb: C7 on 72 bass, missing on 60 bass

So on a 60-bass instrument, to play a diminished chord you just play a seventh chord "with one more flat", one column nearer to the floor.
