There is a new footbass model with double rows of 12 notes:

To get an idea of it's playing technique, here's a standard 12 notes accordion basse pieds (nice drone notes ):

Great find!
With this we can turn a freebass accordion into an organ (2 keyboards plus pedal) and play all that wonderful organ music!

Not so sure if a footbass accordion will be able to hold on for those long pedal notes in some passages of J.S. Bach's organ music. But some JS Bach pieces will certainly be playable with this footbass.

It works fine in folk music tunes:

stephen,
It's rather lovely to see people enjoying "handmade" music of their region in this way.
They've obviously gone to a lot on trouble to get it all just right.
Thanks for posting!🙂👍
