Thank you for your input . I should point out that 70 percent of them are beginners . One of the players had contacted me and asked if I would send a video of me playing the uniform keyboard ( I hardly ever play it ). Next thing , I was sent several videos of these players and thought it would be a bit of fun putting them all together as one .
Looks like it wasn't such a good idea going by some comments
Regards
Gary
Bringing people together (even virtually) to play music together is always a good idea!
But of course you cannot expect amateurs and especially beginners to sound like a professional orchestra.
It being hard is no reason to give up. If we all gave up on everything that's hard nobody would be playing any musical instrument.

On my laptop Google gives these results:



There is also this one played on the Kravtsov
also, i am remembering Gary Blair got involved with CooperFisa
in Italy for a time, and may have re-introduced the idea of that funny old
Keyboard his dad liked

perhaps from there it made it's way to associates in China who may have
been supplying some parts or bodies to them

CoOperativaFisarmonica had an old History, then a dormancy, then
a new history in accordion making and distribution outside of
the CastleFidardo area of influence
hi
I'm still involved with Cooperfisa but they don't have anything to do with the uniform keyboard . My white one was made by Ildo Busillachio who was friends with my father.

Gazzapt - What a shame that it was the negative that brought you here.
I'm not a big fan of massed accordions ( or massed anything really) but for me it was a great idea and I hope it'll happen again.

And now you are here, please come again.

hello Gary,

nice to see you popping in here !

your new friends in Asia seem to be enjoying their Uni's,
and i am glad for any enthusiasm that keeps our old things
from fading completely into the dust

It was a good idea, and well done. I agree that it might look better made with buttons like a chromatic, but still a very interesting layout.

Then there's this! A double keyboard ( both bass and treble have keys)!😲
Is there no end to the possible permutations!🤔

About 10-12 years ago, Weltmeister made a batch of some 50 Jankó accordion, they call it a LOGICORDEON and a few are still available, brand new.
