Hi, new here so saying hello. Retired and feeling the brain going thought I'd take up the accordion, again. Had a Chinese PA years ago but it fell into disuse after illness. Trying it recently its asthmatic wheezing really was disheartening and having watched many videos especially Leon from Roxy's Music have just bought a Roland FR1XB BCA, hopefully it won't be too awful converting and should be easier for my short fingers. Not one for swift decisions I've been considering this for the past year and the BCA system seems more me. While purists might say the Roland isn't like the real thing, compared to my Chinese model it sounds and feel amazing and is more than good enough for me as my musical abilities have always been around the carol and easy sing along level. Back to Palmer Hughes and the Maugain book arrives tomorrow.
