Don't listen to him, he's not crap at all. Fantastic progress in a short time, musical and fun to listen to, a few rough edges perhaps but that's not the point is it?

re Deviant Accordionists: Paul Hutchinson's website address is secretaccordionist.co.uk - that's how he likes to think of himself. About as secret as the location of MI6.

A Guy in Britain playing a Steirische ? (even bavarian music on the thing too) - if that doesn`t deviate from the traditional folk scene of Morris and Scottish country dance bands etc then nothing does - LOL ....

I love those Stierische accordions. They are normally decorated so nicely. My wife once was with me in an accordion shop and said "oh they look cute. I could play one of those". After she looked at the price card she changed her mind.

An alpine ensemble passed through here a few years back, and I was very impressed. They had a tuba, or rather a baritone playing the part of a tuba, but scarcely needed it.

The bass reeds in my Zupan are over 4 inches long and each has its own Helicon chamber, they sound fantastic (as does the rest of the box) but you can`t beat a real baritone or tuba in these bands ..

Hi Adam.
What is a helicon chamber?
It it s sort of individual cassotto?

A Helicon chamber is a sound path, more convoluted and longer than a Cassotto, the (massive) Pallet is usually on the end and each reed has its own instead of all in one . some are better than others, The Zupan and other high end boxes have a more horn shaped path (so the effect is more tuba like than others) .

Sounds very interesting Adam.
I'll have to look to see if YouTube has any demos if these instruments.
