Hi Folks,

I've been thinking of trying the accordion for a few years, but this past year finally motivated me to start. I picked up a Rochelle anglo concertina in March and a Tula 61 button bayan in June. I'm currently sticking with local lessons on bayan and having a great time at it. I'm also on concertina.net under the same username. Attached is a picture of my bayan.

Welcome.
Bayans don't come up often
What do you think of it? Your thoughts would be very welcome.
There's little knowledge and some mystery around Bayans in W. Europe.

I'd say there's quite little knowledge of them here as well. I like it quite well so far, but I don't think I would have bought one if I didn't know of a teacher to take lessons from. To my knowledge, the only work in English resembling bayan instruction is the Friedrich Lips book, which sounds as if it is more for advanced players than beginners from my reading of the description.

Thanks for the warm welcome, all.

Welcome! I too play Bayan boxes (3-row 100-bass from the Soviet era) and other Slavic squeezeboxes.
